My art direction---for a moment I just replied, Just pretty--an expression of pretty. Then I thought abut how tattoo artists do it. They ask the person what they want and draw the inspiration from that...the skill/talent is a tool for others' self-expression.
So art--I just released "a change of self"--a definition of where my art is...where I am...
pursuit of increased self-awareness.
One of the things I love about nursing school is the constant self-analysis and analysis of other people and their feelings. For self analysis, we look into how we handled the situation--was it centered, best-action, and therapeutic? how was our tone of voice, what we said. Did what we did, match up with what we desired to do?
So, I'm applying the process to myself regarding my art. I'm examining my purpose--
Sometimes, there's a part of me where I feel that if my art is ignored, I am ignored. But then I remember that I'm making art for me....it's my cathartic motion.
....And oftentimes a change of self is more needed than a change of scene....
