Answer this and your art will take off

What do I do now? This is the burning question I hear from artists more than any other. We ask teachers, artists, friends and just about anyone who might have a clue.

But this question is not best answered by others. It is answered by you.

And that’s what today’s video is about. If you can get this right your art will simply take off.

Click on the video below to watch.

The ability to answer this question doesn’t come all at once. It is a practice. A practice of listening and collaboration with not just your intellect but your intuition too. We need both to make your art exceptional.

It begins by following hunches and the breadcrumbs of your desires. Notice what brings you alive in your art. What color is more of a Yes than others? How do you feel making those kinds of marks? Looking back at the art you have made, what is a Yes?

From my experience, the more congruence we have between intellect and intuition the better one’s art becomes.

The heart speaks softly and is often drowned out by all the superfluous noise in the room, but rest assured it is speaking. Even now.

What is your intuition telling you about your art and life?

This might be the most important question you have answered all week.
