Okay, so maybe the undertaking of a blog is a bit too much for me. I hardly have time to write a grocery list let alone a few hundred words about studio life. But I do feel as if there may be a few things in my head that might be good to share........right now I can't think of any but I will get back to you.
Nah, just kidding. I want to talk about a question that I get asked all the time about my work and the things I do. People ask," How do you know how to do all this stuff"? My answered is "Because I tried". Sometimes sounds a little snarky. I don't mean it to. But that is the long and short of it. I don't let fear, which is the greatest enemy of creativity, stop me from trying stuff. I know that I have to make a bunch of ugly until pretty pops up. I have to throw a dish or two away before I will invite you to dinner to try my new creation. And I have to be willing to fall down or be dropped a couple of times before I get that running lift move with my dancing partner nailed. That's a lie.........I am usually the one doing the lifting.
Put fear to the side and just try it, whatever it may be. Unless of course we are talking about juggling moving chainsaws and then a little fear might just be a good thing.
Here are some photos of the one thing I wasn't going to let fear stop me from doing!
So dive in, push fear to the side and try it. Let go of the mistakes, learn from them and move on. And don't be afraid of finding out that something isn't up your ally. Go down the list you have in your head to the next thing, breathe deep and try it. The only way of finding out if you can do something is by doing it!
