So, Video Tutorials,Right?

Standard

So this is my year of really crawling up into my own space and putting myself out there.

 

You can see with the video my friend Tracy and I did here, I mean business.

 

However, one of goals for this year, that I actually set in the middle of last year, was making a video tutorial at least once a month, some sort of arty something.

 

It hasn’t happened.

 

First of all, January FLEW by…I was still recovering from December and last year and everything and suddenly it’s February.  I only managed to have one of my boyfriend’s presents ready for his birthday (he’s a groundhog), because I honestly hadn’t realized how much time had passed by.

 

So, yes, there will be monthly videos with Tracy,  Yes, I will continue to post my weekly check-in videos, just to hold myself accountable.  And for the month of February, I do fully intend to vlog every single day.  Well, most every day anyway…

 

What about the tutorial videos?

 

I really do not think so.

 

What I think is going to happen is me making process videos, not technique or tutorial videos.

 

I am still undergoing a lot of powerful shifts these days.  What I learned in all my art classes, it’s not always authentic for the way I do things right now…and what I do does not always result in art, or in anything.  Some days my process is to simply sit, stare out a window and pretend there are no cars, no noise, just mountains and forests and silence.  Silence being the key lately.

 

When will I begin to make these videos?  Honestly, I cannot be sure.

 

I can find my cameras.  I can find … well, most of my equipment.  I can make the time, even with interruptions.  But, at the moment there is nothing I have to say that warrants doing anything.

 

Even in my monthly journal this month, I am doing more with that crayola black marker than I am anything else…and I am not always thrilled by how that turns out.

 

So, we will see.

 

I will let you know when I am ready.

 

Until then, feel free to email me any ideas you have for videos you want to see or anything else.

 

Thanks.
