Day 5: A new Dawn
I seem to be running a day late with the writing up of my daily changes and new things, this is largely down to the fact that I have been so bloody unwell. I’m supposed to have a networking meeting today for mums who are self employed but alas I am too ill to attend… typical.
Anyhow I digress.
So despite my malaise I was determined not to drop my do one thing new everyday habit I am trying to cultivate as an experiment into improving my life and hopefully my health (I have become very interested in theories of the body-mind recently). I wrote a poem and uploaded it to my artists page with Shape Arts. I worked incredibly hard on some images for a new project and I went in for a new arts prize and opportunity.
It is a tough life being a “struggling” artist. You have to enter so many things in the hope of making a bigger name for yourself and as art is totally subjective you are at the behest of others’ tastes. A lot of my work (due to my background) is photographic based, some people don’t like art that uses photographs so galleries do not and so it is a constant judging act.
Still cast your net wide and hopefully you will get more fish.
If you are trying to change your life by doing one new thing every day? I would love to hear from you if you are.
