Being #creative isn’t easy. Being an #artist is messy. (Even if you work in words and photos, like I do.) 📓🖊📷 This isn’t my painting (#fargoartists, if you know who it belongs to, let me know), but I love how it illustrates the #creativeprocess. Making things for a living rarely gets the respect (scratch that, the reverence) that it deserves. 🎨There’s so much more to the work than the final product that people see or hear. 🎼🎭Only #artists see the outtakes, the do-overs, the false starts, what’s left on the cutting room floor. 🎥 And sometimes getting up and putting in the work when you’re stuck is an exercise in both faith and discipline. ⌛️ I wrote a little about that today. The link is in my profile if you want to check it out. What do you create? 📖🎬🖼🎫👗🍱 How do you get unstuck and live a #creativelife?
