I’m asking this question, in the headline, because I really want to know.
As an artist, what have you understood over the years about your relationship to your art?
Has there been a story line weaving its way through your art career? Or have you noticed seasons of relationships with your art? A winter mode, perhaps. Or summer solstice festivities?
Does your relationship with your art, in any way, mirror your other significant relationships?
Are there highs and lows… and what’s your style of dealing with either?
Would you say there’s passion or have you slipped into it’s just oh-so-familiar I don’t have a clue what to say?
Do you have an awareness of where your relationship could be improved? Where it’s solid? And where it’s asking for more than you are currently giving?
Some artists, who have worked with me, have ongoing conversations with each piece they produce.
Is this you? Would you comment and give an example of how that dialog might go?
Do individual pieces have an individual relationship with you or is there a common core in the relationship that all of your work shares? Or both?
Tell me, please…
Pretend I’m from the third Pleiades and don’t understand this thing called “art” and “artists” much less the relationship between the two.
Go slow. Give me specifics. Or metaphors. Or send me to a link where I can see what you are talking about.
My new Manifesto For Visual Fine Artists is all about making sure you have the tools you need to develop all the relationships a thriving artist needs most.
The Entire Manifesto Is Ready For You
My plan is to use this Sunday Series of Blog Posts to tease out sections of the manifesto and illuminate, ruminate, and expand, but I can’t do this alone.
I need my intrepid artists, the ones who find a resonance with exploring how we can all step so fully into our own creative flow that the collective consciousness of humanity also wakes up and steps into its collective creative flow.

I want to hear … no, I need to hear about the principles you believe will take you closer and closer to the visionary summit of the truth and power in your art.
So, please… comment here and tell me, what is the value of your art?
The Next Step
I have been coaching visual artists on their career path to Visionary Affluence since 2004.
That’s the ten-year minimum it takes to master any skill—not to say I’ve actually mastered anything. Just letting you know I have logged the 10,000 hours it takes to run fast enough, flap your wings hard enough, and leap high enough to discover whether or not you can fly.
And what I can tell you is how remarkable the view is from 10,000 hours above the creative landscape. I can spot enclaves of my artists as they sit ‘round mythical campfires at different levels of the Mt. Olympus climb to their dreams.
Leaning into the smell of a wood fire, these artists – intrepid visionaries every one – share their experiences with each other. A hawk cries out and circles overhead as the mountain range frames a bold streak of sunset sky deepening to blood red.
I invite you to join your fellow artists, and me, under the emerging stars of your own visions, where the expansive beauty of the horizon calls out, the fire is warm, and the truth of your heart is irresistible!
Your Truth – Your Power – Your Art
And I’ll keep you posted on the exciting new events, webinars, trainings, books, and successful artist interviews I’m mapping out as we climb this dream summit together.
