Billie, Where do you access the inspirational materials you listen to?
Hiya Deby! It was his latest podcast here or itunes etc :) Take your time over the block, just relax, you need to absorb the changes in environment slowly. Sometimes the vision is so strong we get 'overwhelm' that may be what it is. Write down 2 line 'poems' or phrases instead of painting, sometimes works for me and simplifies your thinking. Example:
"Skiddaw; height, space, wind and a sudden break in the clouds.
We gaze down at Derwent Water and dream."
That was from a Lake district trip, it led to a series of paintings.
Debra Love the idea of the videos, I have been toying with similar ideas, I experimented with google hangouts on air. Also have you guys seen the news that youtube have started premium channels from $1.00 and up? How long before that is an option for many more users. So all the hosting and payment hassles covered for a tutorial channel. Actually, Debra PMP will be upgraded in late summer and we can have paywalled sections as part of our package, so I will be looking for good ideas and services to offer. We have over 7k members now.
Jason I will take a look soon, not got to it yet. Billie sounds great! I am sure you will do well.
Thanks for your input, guys. Hope you're enjoying your weekend.
Kent and Deby, I will check out the videos you suggested. Deby, what tweaks do you mean?
I am home in the front porch of a wonderful old Victorian House in my hometown Asheville - could it get any better listening to Aretha Franklin singing "Change Gonna Come" creating some tiles. I am working on getting the technique down. The one I am doing right now has some bubbles in it, but I will practice.
For the past month, I have been listening every morning to an hour of something inspirational like Brian Tracy, Ziglar, John Maxwell and through out the day. It is making such a difference. Yesterday, I had a spendid day, no worries even though I really have plenty. And woke up cruddy. I listened until it was gone and am now creating a tile with this flower.
Last week, I got a spot on outside a really snazzy place to sell my photos on tile. Now I have to create them. I almost didn't go because they told me they didn't have room for another photographer. I just happened, really just happened to mention that I do tile also. And I am in starting in about a week.
Deby, you mentioned the difference between artists in Europe and America. I would love to hear more about that.
You also asked what we have going on this weekend. Monday is my wife's 40th birthday, so I'm spending most of today putting together a secret gift basket for her of 40 items she will like.
Roy, can you give us the link to the podcast where Dan answered your question.
Jason, the link didn't work. I'll try again: http://www.onlinemeetingnow.com/seminar/?id=7bd4f3a658
Ed, I love hearing that you have a dream to visit London and Paris. I suggest that you write your dream on post it notes and post them on your mirror or computer - in a place that you see everyday. Think about it, pray about it . . . you never know how God may bring it to pass.
