Rocky Falls, Kaye Franklin

Have you ever experienced an

art slump?

 

Juliana Crownover has several suggestions to jump start your creativity and grow in your art.

 

Two Books were reccommended:

The Phantom Toll Booth and Art & Fear

 

Create art in a series:

Pick a number of paintings (ie: 12 cactus paintings), or a time frame (ex: 5 paintings in one week, one month, etc)

 

Limit yourself to one subject, one color, one size, one format, very limited pallete, color schemes, emothions, use a different medium, etc.

 

Change your passwords to reflect your goals.

(ex: iwillpaintfivemeadowsthismonth)

They are probably pretty secure. :)

 

Share your goals with others and ask them to keep you accountable.

 

Keep a backpack ready with a small pallete and paper ready to go everywhere.

 

Pack yourself a lunch in the morning on your painting days.

 

Post your work - even work in progress.

Try using a webcam like earthcam to paint plein air without the plane fare.

 

Select colors from an object or photo or magazine and then create a painting from that color scheme. 

 

Paint in a group and select a theme.

We will use that idea as a group for November. Paint something to reflect the theme "Harvest" and share with us at the November meeting.

 

The Exhibit chairman and members are hard at work on the 39th National Pastel Exhibit. 

We would like to thank the members of the committee for their help thus far. We could not do it without you.

 

Jeannie Davis, Dawn Secord, Marian hirsch, Pam Smith, Linda Smith, Janis Krendick, Sherry Barber, Marie Maines, and Wendy Koehrsen.
