artist's way guided intent (june)

by gl. at 7:28 pm

the last artist's way guided intent before our creative hiatus will leave a lasting impression! masks naturally invite deep personal explorations, so it was wonderful to have such an open, willing, vulnerable group. it was fun to meet new people and encourage regulars.

[waxing & waning: click the image to see some of the other masks]

we wrote before we began making the masks and before we shared our masks w/ the group. the first prompt asked, what part of myself do i hide, or what part of my personality is a defense? i hide the part of myself that is unsure. i feel like i have to be "on" all the time. that's why i love this moon mask, as it demonstrates that one can wax & wane and still shine. i wrote, "i am not the sun: i do not consume myself and spit out flame." it has a a spray of stars wrapped around its dark side and gleaming gems embedded on its outer edge.

this was the last guided intent we'll have until september, where we'll explore our "creative blocks!" one more open studio/collage night on the solstice, and then i will try very hard to do nothing for two months. we'll see how that goes!
