Highlights from The Artist’s Journey book launch
The Artist’s Journey Is An Inner Journey
One of the lessons I’ve learned over the years in being an artist as well as working with artists in workshops and classes is that being an artist is ultimately an inner journey.
While we learn concepts, principles and techniques, we find out that these are guides but they’re not the thing itself.
To get to our deepest work, it’s about stepping into the unknown. It’s about adopting an attitude of “not knowing”. It’s about cultivating exploration and experimentation. It’s about moving closer and closer to our own self expression.
Technique is valuable, but it’s only there as a tool to support our expression. We don’t lead with technique.
This is a big shift artists come to, sometimes after years of focusing on rules, constructs and techniques.
Part of the Journey: The Arrival And Unboxing Of The Artist’s Journey book
We had so much fun unboxing The Artist’s Journey book last night! From left to right: my dear friend and stylist Lauren McLaughlin, Sidharta Pascual (my filmmaker), Dr. Bruce Sawhill (my main squeeze) and David Goodman (the genius behind all things technical in The Artist’s Journey courses).
The awesome trio of my daughter Kimberly and friends Sophia and Amanda.
Wonderful friends of my daughter, Alex and Grahm and David Goodman.
