|Art Muse Mind Map|
Black Gesso, Tombo Markers, Gelly Roll pens, sharpie pens.
One of my signature art therapy assignments is
I think that this process now has a short hand version. I made a drawing of my "Art Muse" and printed out a copy which I glued to the cover a composition book that I had painted with black gesso. I embellished the drawing...surprised that she ended up with a mask. Then, instead of making a separate mind-map I made the image itself into a mind-map. Maybe I'll call it a Art with Associations.
My composition book is a place for me to plot and plan ways to expand my streams of income through making art, coaching, doing art therapy (virtually, and face to face) and teaching.
What I discovered: I need to develop myself as a product. That's what the mask means, I think. I need to assure the part of myself that is a raving introvert that another part of me will do all the extroverted stuff that makes her so tired. Like an actor creates a role. It really is me, my ideas and heart, but a product/persona as well. At least that's what I'm thinking today.
