Today I completed Christine Mason Miller's workshop "Today: Begin". It was part of Mindy Tsonas' *WishStudio that offers ongoing online workshops. And the money raised to participate in the workshop was donated to Marianne Elliott's Global Seva Challenge for South Africa AIDS/HIV Projects.
It was so amazing!!
Christine took the overwhelming idea of a dream (no matter what it is) and broke it down into manageable pieces.
My dream is to create a series of color pencil drawings (4-6) using my dog, Rocky as my inspiration/model. I made a committment to myself to begin today and I not only created a collage to get myself motivated, but completed the first three steps on my "to do list" - with writing this blog being #4! Yeah!
There is so much excitment in movement. I've had creative dreams, goals and ideas in the past, but that is where they stayed. They never materialized (idk, I guess I just thought it would magically happen on it's own! ha!) or they just fizzled out as I talked myself out of even starting. Now, it isn't just a pie in the sky idea anymore. It is something I am actually doing. And it feels wonderful!!
So you will be seeing more of Rocky and I hope you like him - he's a pretty fun boxer pup!
