I love a clean slate.
A fresh sheet of paper, a newly-cleaned whiteboard, a pristine layer of snow.
There’s such beauty to the purity. The blankness quiets the noise of our surroundings, and of our own minds. Into those unsullied white spaces I find my mind naturally expands, while new ideas and possibilities start to grow and take shape.
So it is with a new year... and I am only just wrapping my mind around the possibilities of a new decade!
Do you do anything to mark the start of a new year? Do you brainstorm or reflect, set intentions or make plans?
I am working on a multi-part blog post “Looking Back to Look Ahead” in which I will share with you some of my reflections and insights into the year that’s passed and how those will affect how I see the coming year, and how I'll move forward.
Please take a moment to share your favourite ways of reflecting or refining your vision or just how you treat the annual changeover, I'd love to hear from you!
As a visual artist I like nothing more than getting up to my elbows in paint or little plastic toys, or wading in at the deep end in pursuit of an idea. When I am not teaching others in a similar vein, you can find me researching, writing and noodling around in my studio, seeing where my latest lines of inquiry lead me.
