The Artist's Way - Week One

Week One of The Artist's Way has come and gone.

The first chapter called "Recovering a Sense of Safety" felt more like looking into my past than recovering safety. I would guess the author of this book has a background in psychology. Which isn't bad, but some people I know would think this is a bunch of "whooie." I was real good in completing the 10 Workbook Tasks set in front of me and I continue to write my Morning Papers.

My "Artist Date" for the week was taking myself to the antique mall and looking around. I've been wanting to make another wind chime, and thought maybe antique silverware, such as spoons, would be a cute find. All the prices have increased since to last time I was there - spoons were running $3-6 each, and I wasn't particularly taken by any!

I found some beaded napkin rings - they were actually more than I wanted to spend, but they sounded so nice when I picked them up. So I plan to take the rings apart and look for other beads to match them. Here's what they look like now.

I'll show you all a pic, when I'm done with the wind chime.

I decided to put off Week Two's Tasks and just continue with my Morning Papers. Some of the tasks involve looking at my daily life, and my life isn't going to be normal this week, being away from home. So, it's writing for me. I'm thinking that I'll see I should move away from art, and spend more time writing, since I enjoy it so much. But then again, maybe I should try a drawing class...
