It’s been two weeks since I posted my last blog so time for an update!!

SO much has happened in my busy big part of the world over these last few days. But first things first, I have to post some new photos of my latest art pieces. Yes! My photographic images on hand-made flax paper canvases are natural, sustainable art works that are good for me and good for the environment!photo on flax paper

I finally got to send these pieces off to two very cool people (well three people actually. Saul, Nikki & their son Toby Tahi) who really helped me to get my systems for my business going. It can be hard for any artist at the best of times to have any sense of structure (you know being creative and all – going with the flow, that kind of thing!) but I’ve realised after having a system in place, I could never be without it.

Workflow Group showed me how to increase my productivity just by having a few systems in place. I no longer sit there for hours with a piece of paper wondering where it is going to go. One rule is: handle each piece of paper only once!

I also learnt a valuable lesson which has probably been an excuse in the past for not being able to be creative at times and that is:

You can actually be creative at any time in any moment if you really want to! No more excuses about having artist’s block, or not ‘feeling’ creative.

Some people might not agree, but this has been my experience and as an artist who is in business, at some stage I need to say, “Ok, I will create because this is my ‘soul’ income. There can be no excuse and if I am really passionate about what I am doing, then how can there be blocks to this passion?

In saying this, I create because this is who I am, this is my passion and this will never change regardless of whether I get paid or not. The money just follows and I can attest to this!photo on flax paper
