Are you thinking big enough?

I remember not feeling so good about the kind of art I was making. I thought it was because of my circumstances. I had all sorts of ideas about what was or was not possible for me. But years ago, I had a conversation with my father, Clifford Wilton, who changed all that. He said something to me that made me realize I was not thinking big enough and honestly imagining what I did want. Not just in my art, but my life, too.

And that’s what today’s video is all about.

Have a look here:

Every year around this time, I take some time to reimagine what truly lights me up, not just in my art but my life, too. They are both, as I know you know, intertwined. To get someplace, we must first imagine it. And imagine it often.

Let us know in the comments your strategy for staying current with all you desire in your art and life.

We would love to know.

This year I thought I would invite whoever wants to join me in my reimagining process. It is called the Creative Breadcrumbs Challenge. It is free, and it will walk you through the process I use to gain clarity, insight, and to fire up my art mojo. It starts in about a week on Monday, October 19th.

Here is a link if you would like to join me.


Hope your Sunday is going great.
