artist's way guided intent (june)

by gl. at 11:59 pm

that was a very successful evening! the first deliberate artist's way guided intent event went well -- and i can tell because i have so much i want to talk about and so many ideas for next time. :)

i feel like i hit a plateau (the good kind, the kind where you can stop & look around & breathe) about how to handle studio events like this. i hated theatre management unless i was directing, but i get excited about other art management stuff. (does anyone remember the ephemera exhibit)?

the overall structure has always been good, but i finally nailed some details:

a few more things i still need to tweak:

yes, but what about the art? oh, okay....

compositionally, this isn't one of my favorites, but as a visual image to represent power, especially how i felt about my struggles working for the void of csusm, it's very intriguing. the words beneath the star are german. in the reflection component i wrote: "what compels me to move past the point of exhaustion, into bloody feet and a desert of sand?" it's taking me almost an entire page to slip out of my facilitator role enough to actually engage with my piece, so i feel like there's more to be explored here.
