Musings on Being the Artist of Your Day

Isn’t Creativity a Habit?

Yes says Twyla Tharp in her book, The Creative Habit, Learn It and Use It for Life. It has some fun exercises worth sharing. Especially 33 questions to ask yourself. A few highlights I thought you might enjoy:

1. What is the first creative moment you remember?
11. How do you begin your day?
21. Who is your muse?
22. Define muse.
26. When you work, do you love the process or the result?
32. What is your idea of mastery?
33. What is your greatest dream?

What Does Your Favorite Shape Say About You?

Found this video of Angeles Arrien speaking last month about the meaning of the five symbols found in art around the world. Those five symbols are the circle, square, triangle, spiral and the equidistant cross.

Which of those five shapes do you feel most drawn to?

Number the five shapes 1 to 5 with 1 being your most preferred shape. Arrien talks about the meanings of the positions and the shapes at: http://vimeo.com/15657160

Tomorrow I’ll share a picture of a monotype I did of a circle.
