Day 15 – Reflection

Take a moment to take inventory of the results of continuous blogging about your art and networking with other artists through their blogs.

  • What have you learned about yourself?
  • What connections have you made with other artists?
  • Did you find a rhythm and style to express yourself about your art through blogging?
  • Did you discover anything new about your relationship to your art?
  • Do you have any better understanding of the role you play as an artist in your community?
  • Is blogging a worthwhile activity?
  • What do you need to keep you blogging regularly?

Hmmm for the last prompt I feel like this is a large/yet easy in a not so easy looking immediately kind of way.

I learned that I am not meant to blog every day (well not at this point). That the art scene in Atlanta is vibrant. That I would love to visit C4 Atlanta one day. My blogging style sways gently like a calm wave. I’ve learned that my role as an artist in this community is welcomed, wanted, and happily accepted. With my art and blog I have to just keep putting myself out there. You never know when an opportunity is rolling past. For instance a few days ago I entered a store that would be a fabulous place for me to teach classes. I chatted with an associate for a bit and that night I emailed the owner. This morning I received a reply from there to come meet with them this week! I am so excited and nervous and excited. None of this would have happened if I hadn’t been given support by my fiance similar to C4 Atlanta supporting artists blogging.

Will I keep blogging regularly? Not every day, but more often. Even if it is just an image of my work. Like this one. Stage two of my public art preparation.
