I have been working on my preening Whooping Crane piece the past few days. I’m happy to be back in the studio and motivated, however, progress has been one step forward and two steps back.
I did quite a lot of work on the wings, but it started looking like some weird bird angel. Obviously, the shape of the wings is off. I cut things apart last night and hopefully when I piece the bird back together it will look like something from the avian family, rather than the Great Holy Whooping Crane.
I will post pictures when I have something done that I don’t find embarrassing:-)
In the meantime, Christine Kane has posted a video of Simon Sinek from the fabulous TED series. It’s about marketing directly from your passion. It’s really about presenting what you do in life in an authentic way, rather than “selling’. I can definitely see applications in my own life, especially in art marketing. It’s pretty long, but if you have 18 minutes to spare, it’s worth the watch.
In the meantime, a daily moment of Zen. This is a shot I took from a flight I took to Knoxville, TN. I don’t know what the body of water was, but it snaked around all over the place. I loved the organic shape of the river system obscured by clouds:

I think I’ll be thinking about how to apply the content for a while. I would love to hear your thoughts on art and marketing-or anything else!
