I was inspired by the links on the New Years Day post on Polymer Clay Daily and decided on a word for 2009.
My word is To Deepen– well I guess that is two words but I wanted to choose a verb.
For me putting ideas into action is something that is very important. I don’t really “get” things until I understand how to apply the ideas to my life in an active way.
The same thing in making art, I don’t really understand techniques or most importantly concepts until I can do something/make something with my hands.
So for 2009 I would like To Deepen all aspects of my life: my art, my relationships with family and friends, my ties to community, my love of teaching and sharing, and to deeply appreciate all that 2009 has to offer.
Next post, some thoughts on deepening art-making.
