Hello, I am back...by great demand! No not really. You never really know who cares whether you write a blog or not, but I am back because I am determined to get this whole blog-facebook-website thing happening in unison.
Where did those last 6 months go? Regular updates of my studio work have been regularly posted on my FaceBook business page 'Janet Pfeiffer Artist' and I keep in touch with friends and family on the FaceBook 'Janet Pfeiffer' page including sharing of quotes, words of wisdom and things that make me laugh.
I've managed to keep my website reasonably updated and am currently trying to work out how to insert a slide show of my artwork. Meanwhile there are text msgs and of course the never ending trail of interesting emails from groups all over the world. Oh! And Linked-another of those valuable networking tools. Considering I loathe sitting at a computer for hours I'm not doing too bad a job!
Anyway, life happens and you realise that family, children, health and friends actually do matter most and following closly behind is your job, home, car etc and then the rest of the stuff of life fits in where it can.
This year as I start to think about where I am with my work and where I want to go, I can see that the stream of creating artwork and the other stream of art and healing that I am passionate about are starting to come together more...sort of.
At the moment I am cleaning out my art studio. I am discovering loads of dead moths and cobwebs along with dried up paints and mediums! I'm making sure everything is at my finger-tips to create the works that I am currently thinking about and planning. ( a possible series on Handals Messiah) Also clearing a space for students, and I am pulling out all my works and asking myself, what I can group together for a small solo exhibition in local restaurant, home, salon, my garage, wherever I can? I have done this in the past but not for a while. I'm asking, what best represents what I am now trying to communicate?
Alongside this I am going into my second year of study for an advanced diploma in transpersonal art therapy. I hope to combine this healing work with my InterPlay Leading and expressive art. Currently I'm practicing on my friends for free, so if you want get in touch with your creative self, call me!
I am going to try and keep this blog going as well as my Facebook business page. Apologies to my readers for being out of the loop, but sometimes it is a lot to get my head around. I have so much more to say but I will leave it here for now and fill you in with more as we go. If you are a follower, let me know and share any insights and ideas you have. I would love to hear from you!
It actually does feel really good to have made a start again Yaay! :)
