Do you want to be successful in your art? The magic words are “hocus focus”.
It’s no trick really that being focused and busy does conjure up success. Whether we’re talking about ‘art business’ success’ or simply churning out work. Get busy on things that produce results.
Sure it’s important to wash the dishes and do the laundry or even keep down a night job.
Or always writing WordPress posts,ha.
The thing is, that body of work you want to get done will not just …poof!…appear out of thin air! Often the elixir for lack of focus is to just do the work.
If you’re waiting for someone to put a spell on you to get some art work done it’s not going to be happening. It has to come from your own spirit. Sure do whatever it takes to create the right atmosphere to prosper. Sweep away the old cobwebs in that studio and disturb some dust. That’s a start.
Don’t let small tasks haunt you.
How many times have you been told to do all the so called important things first and the rest (your time to create) will follow. Ever notice it doesn’t ever work that way? Those dark thoughts are from well-meaning souls that aren’t quickened to how important art is to you. Treat them like bats in the belfry! Do not disturb [them] and they won’t disturb you.
It doesn’t take a wizard to figure this out. Do the work and you get results. Leave and it will die. What’s the worst that will happen? Will you be put on trial for doing what you love? Will you be burned at the stake for making art?
Well I must take my own advice and wisp away to my studio, grab that brush like a wand and see what magic I there create. I hope this little post will possess you to go get some work done. It’s a treat really!
Hey! I didn’t even use the term ghost of a chance ! Oh. Wait. I just did. drat!
