Creative Thursday called In the fish bowl, life as an artist online. So far it's been so fun meeting new artists on line and just feeling like you are not alone out there. There is so much information out there that it can be so overwhelming. But, it is also so fun learning all new ways to connect to other artists and promote your artwork online.
This week Marisa, the teacher of the class, gave us a few questions to ponder about where we are in our life as an artist. One question that I thought was so great is What does success look like to you? What an interesting idea. When I first thought of the question, I came up with pretty typical answers...I want to sell more jewelry, have my work known, etc.. Then, I thought more about the idea of success, I thought wait...success is so much more.
I sat down with my journal and here are some of my thoughts.
Success to me is feeling like I am growing creatively and personally. It is having something in my life that allows me to let out all the emotions rolling around in my head. It is having the time to be creative and still have time to be with my children, giving them what they need and enjoying them. It is feeling like I am giving to others.
It's funny, when I think of success in those ways, I feel so much more content. It's always amazing to me how you can look at something like success and think of it in so many different ways. I am so looking forward to exploring thoughts and ideas like this with my new group of fellow fishies!
Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderfully successful day! Stacie
