All of us are looking for a way to create balance in our hectic lives. We sometimes feel that we are existing in a spinning wheel over and over and over. We may take a brief pause over a weekend yet as Sunday evening closes, we ask what have we accomplished?
Consistency and focus are important elements if it is your aim to further your creative practice. I observe how some would start one venture, then move onto another without completing anything. Nothing is going to work if we don't give it time to evolve, to breathe, and to take its natural shape. This may mean that the true manifestation of your work will not happen in 24 hours. It may take a week, a month or even a year, but give it its creative time.

YOUR CREATIVE PRACTICE
Grounding the creative brain takes effort and practice. Once you’ve identified what your creative outlet is, I encourage my mentorship clients to "reverse engineer" their approach to complete their creative goals. Your goals could be anything from starting your own business, learning how to draw to completing a knited sweater.
If you would like more tips and advice, then I have a few masterclasses you can join where I go into a little bit more detail on how to avoid marketing pitfalls and how to start creating your dream art business. Come join us! You can also follow me on Instagram for more art business tips and advice.
TIPS TO STAY FOCUS
- Sketch everyday
- Observe others and take a mental or physical photograph. Revisit that photograph and create a scene in your mind. Then translate the same on paper, etc.
- Remain close to creative and open minded friends. Often a brief expression or conversation can spark a creative action.
-It is okay to not always have an agenda. No fear in just exploring the creative outlet. Dont always think you need to have a specific end goal.
