Life is beauty through and through
Life is sunny, life is cool
Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros,
We have been working to redefine and sort out what we want with our blog.
I guess I’m not completely sure where the blog world needs St John Family Studios, but the times that I’ve asked I seem to get few responses. I’m unsure how y’all all get interaction on your blogs…but I seem to get nowhere in that department.
I do know this: during this past hiatus, our blog continues to have momentum, it continues to have this weird life of its own…it keeps going, people keep searching our art and coming to our page and looking at it over and over again.
I really have NO idea how that happens, but it’s pretty cool. So something we do here is interesting 🙂
I’ve been completely involved with some new classes, a job outside of the house that I really do dislike a whole bunch, and other regular life stuff. But my goal this year is to figure out what’s next, where the blog fits in, and how to keep sharing cool art and techniques and inspiration…and to figure out how to get the art and the surrounding stuff get to be the focus and the stupid job less of a focus.
Do you feel that pull? How do we get to the place where what we love and feel passionate about is what we spend our time doing, and still eating and paying rent?? Any thoughts??
The other big goal this year for me is to learn to not be afraid of drawing and painting the human form, faces, hands, noses, eyes, hands, and all of the super-duper things that float around in my mind’s eye.
So I leave you with a sample of how I’ve spent my recent time arting. Please keep coming back. We will figure it out 🙂
