Saturday is the day. Hair and make-up at 9 am and interview at 10:30 am. Wish me luck. Although I have pondered and eloquently answered all of the interview questions in advance, I have a feeling I am not going to stick to the script. No surprise there.
5. Do you have any routines or rituals that you follow when you create a piece of art?
I wouldn't necessarily call them routines or rituals, but besides working from a headspace that is free of inhibitions and/or preconceived ideas, I aim to achieve 2 major things in a finished painting: 1. I aim to create work that is personal & unique and 2. I aim to create work that is esthetically pleasing. If I can achieve those two things, I consider the work successful even if no one else likes it or understands it.
This blog was created to share my belief that the art-making process is a catalyst for transformation and personal empowerment. I am living proof.
