Week 7

Part 1 Thinking
I have a few weeks of time now at home to make time and think.

This week I spent time with a friend and maker who is a giver, talented and supremely creative. She is a definite on my committee, a fantastic role model.
She saw what I was doing and gave encouragement. She said what I wanted/needed to hear. 'The small pods that you are making are good. Look beyond, go bigger, make lots, develop.'

2. Writing. What do I care about?
There are 2 lists here for me a) as a creative and also b) a social being. Of course they overlap.

Open landscape
Big skies
Space
Light
Abstraction
Shape
Architecture which reflects the above
Surprise in art and created spaces
Developing > pushing the boundaries > striving for something different.

Family
Friends
Garden
Home
Order
Positivity Belonging
Fear of exclusion Being proactive

Order, positivity and the desire to be proactive should also be in the first column but can be problematical....areas I have to work on.

3. Cultivate and Embrace

I want my work to
Stand out as something original,
Interest, surprise, amuse the person who sees it.

4. Prioritise
A larger 'architectural' piece comprising many smaller parts with elements of surprise within these.
