"Energy Flows Where Attention Goes..."






I have a neat idea to share...
When I took an illustration journal workshop from Grace Haverty in April of 2006 she suggested an easy way of keeping track of creative spurts. The calendars I posted today show a really user friendly tool she received from one of her art teachers. You can make your own personal record be as unique and complex as you desire-I have chosen to simply color in a square each time I either drew or painted. The quotation at the bottom of the 2007 calendar is "Energy flows Where Attention Goes." How true!

That is so cool! I think I might try a version of it myself... I love your use of color in your artwork. Having fun looking at your stuff.

What a good idea! I've gotten into a habit of regular drawing but not posting as much. It would be interesting to see if there is a cycle to creativity.
