Last weekend at the Adirondack Plein Air Festival in Saranac Lake, NY, I was able to remain in the hall as Juror Anne Diggory judged the entries from 2 days of plein air painting. Anne is one of my favorite landscape painters, so her judgement was especially interesting.

The ARTS ENCLAVE is up for a PEPSI REFRESH grant in the month of August, and we will need votes…Many many votes every day in August to meet our goal.
My project is to take this blog you have been reading, and build a website around it where you can start to meet artists of all kinds and learn more about what they are doing and how they do it. They will teach us! There’s a huge arts culture going on around us and participating in it is the best way I know to change the world for the better—which is exactly what the PEPSI REFRESH PROJECT is all about.
Please vote for the ARTS ENCLAVE website project today and every day in August. And look at the other projects on the RefreshEverything.com site. There’s a lot of good karma on there!

No matter what your outlet is, you can only work creatively in small bursts. Forcing yourself to write for hours, or to paint all day, or to write a song when it’s just not coming is not only frustrating, it’s COUNTER-CREATIVE. Your juicy little mind needs a time out now and again to be able to do what it does automatically. The river in your brain will naturally take you to where ideas are most fertile. But to do this, you have to stop paddling the canoe.
