TEMPLE OF THE RAVEN SISTERHOOD ~ A new personal vision for the new year.

Temple of the Raven Sisterhood (c) WillowRaven 2016

Every artist, whether a visual artist, a writer, musician, or performer, has dreams of making a living at our craft. I am a freelance visual artist and am blessed to be able to support my son and home doing what I love. So many of my peers are forced into 'real jobs'.

There is a negative side to doing well as a freelance artist. It means most of my time is dedicated to visually translating for other people rather than for myself. So once in a while, I HAVE to dedicate a few days to myself and ignore my huge to-do list. If I didn't, I'd not only get cranky but start feeling like my creative nature was being caged ... limited by my job. Even though most of my clients do give me a lot of creative wiggle room, I still have to stay within THEIR story, rather than telling some of my own, even though mine are strictly visual in nature.

Temple of the Raven Sisterhood is my first completed personal vision for 2016. It took me longer to complete than planned, but that's how muses work, or so I'm told.

Think I will add this piece to my Twitter 'visual writing prompt' challenge. I reckon some interesting stories could come out of it.

Visual writing prompt: http://willowraven.weebly.com/temple-of-the-raven-sisterhood.html Write a short for this & I'll post it w/ link to you :D

Now back to that to-do list. :D







Onto wrapping up the next book :-D
Until next time ...
