Outside the Zone


My column The Creative Pulse in the January/February issue of Cloth Paper Scissors is all about the benefits of stepping outside your comfort zone.

The following ideas are just a few that I have included in the article:

-Crack open a supply that you've never used.

-Take a class in a technique that's outside your wheelhouse.

-Work on a collaborative project with other artists.

-Add another layer to a piece you are satisfied with but know could be better.

-Usually use a paintbrush? Use your hands instead.

Here is what a wise woman(Orly) had me do. First take a journal spread, save the one spot you HATE. On the very same spread create a spread you like from that. Then, take a section you like from the spread, and on the same spread create a new spread. Do that over and over 7 times. You defiantly learn a lot from that exercise.
