Today Jamie asks: What treat do you wish for?
Ok, this one is a bit harder for me than last week. Last week was super easy and the answer came to me in a mere moment. This one, however…
I wish for a lot of things. A lot. Big things (my own house), fairly big things (a DSLR camera, big flatscreen tv & blu-ray player, car fixed with a couple bells & whistles for fun), and tons of smaller things (a crafty want list that’s a mile long, books, Etsy goodies, etc)…but I don’t feel that’s the essence of this Wishcast, at least not for me.
I really want to write & do art as a full-time career, but I have so many ideas in my head relating to art that when I sit down and try to create, all of a sudden I have no idea what I’m going to make. Poof! All ideas gone. Then I start brainstorming again, and ideas flood in…but when I try to nail them down, they are like fairies, only seen halfway through the corner of my eye, darting in and out with laughter and not staying long enough to chat.
Or I come up with specific ideas that are so grand that I just can’t afford to do them (such as my storybook idea that would require convincing an illustrator to let me use her work—fees I can’t imagine—printing the book and then marketing it. I love page layout & design & marketing, so the work of this idea is no work at all…but the costs involved in licensing, printing, and marketing are just competely out of my reach right now.)
I’d love to come up with a list of definitive art projects to make that really thrill me and are easily doable on my currently extremely limited budget. Sort of like “starter” things that would give me a place to launch from.
There we go: I wish for the treat of concrete art project ideas.
