HOW TO STOP TO AVOID YOUR ART PRACTICE

4/23/17


I have always been making art the one or the other way.
Much of what I accomplished you can see on my website.
My website is where I store almost everything, unless it would be so bad
I would throw it into the trash! That can happen too. But to 99% it doesn't.
Each piece I store on my website has been ripened and developed to that
point, that I can say: it is done.   
Unfinished works, there are many however,  you won't find on my site.  
You'll find a collection of my art put together, which I have been creating
over years in all forms and varieties on the path of learning and training.
Out of one or other reason I couldn't finish on some of my started works,
but are all saved up, nothing goes lost.
Sometimes I pick up even after years to complete one piece of those
unfinished examples, like the one below<Backyard Tree>.
I  started in 2008/9 but got to be finished finally in 2014. It was quite a
journey  in my life until I even wanted to pick it up again.

However, doing art is something you do not non-stop. At least not I by
all means.
I do art in intervals. The times of doing art are less longer compared
with the times when I am busy with other things in life.
To be a full time artist does not mean you do art until you fall tired
into bed.
                                                                                                                                                            
The times I do art can also vary; sometimes it is already early morning
that I am so inclined, more often afternoon and often also evening and
nights.
It depends on my own nature and because I am not really a early bird,
my creativity inflames most in the later hours of the day and also evening
and nights. It also depends on which season of the year we are in,
but none of them hinder me to go for my passion at all.

                                                                                                                                               
I do my art mostly when I am at home, but I attend also art classes, because
it is a great possibility to motivate yourself to go out with your art, out of your
own 4 walls so to speak. It is very giving to each other to do art in a group. It
has also a very therapeutic effect, but in another way than when you sit
all by yourself.
Light days are the best days for me to be creative and so is summer better
than winter
                                                                                                                                            
I discovered that also in winter my creativity goes more to sleep then in
summer. I guess it's natural bound. To avoid the winter sleep I attended the
last couple of month an oil painting class.
When you do not each day art  it can happen, that everything else you do
otherwise, takes too much over from the time you would need to take out
for to do art. That is actually a huge problem, if you don't know how to step
back into the flow, into your flow of creativity.

 
All too often you find yourself disconnected to your own art, because the
time you weren't creative was building up a big gap into the flow you once
were in.
What to do about that?

It is actually more easy to say it, then really to do so!

First of all, you got to overcome whatever it can be, what want you to
hinder to do what you got to do, related to your inner urge of motivation
and imagination, and start on over again, or also pick up where you left.  
Also I really think  in making art, you have to listen to your inner voice
telling you:

JUST BEGIN! you got all time, just take it and do it!

What can hinder me or divide me from the love to do art which the
Creator, Elohim of all Yisra'el put into me with the talent?
Actually NOTHING.

He gave the talent to me with the love to use it.
That applies in painting, drawing, any other forms of art and in a
wider spectrum, away from art making, in all areas of life.

                                                                                                                                                      
The phrase use it or loose it comes to my mind and certainly speaks
some truth; but from my own experience, when you really have this
or that passion, the talent, and the skills learned meanwhile, then you
will never get that disconnected, and so the chance to loose your talent
over a long time period not doing anything with your gift, is very small.
I do not really think it would be possible, unless you would quit forever
intentionally.
However, you just don't improve as much you could, if you practice your 
talent less often, but when practicing every day you'll become more a
master of your passion.

I am in such a phase where I have been away too much from my art.
There are many reasons why, but no reason not to return.
I need to get back to my flow, using my inner inspiration and motivation
and start living it out again on the paper or canvas.
To overcome,  I have to overcome my weaker self.

What is also distracting is that my interests go way beyond making art.
I am so often with something else busy  which I am passionate about.
It is therefore good to schedule a certain time of your day,
when you are sure you would love to make art. And then do it!
However it needs also discipline to stick to your schedule.
                                                                                                                                               
Another help is just think you going to an art class and you do not
want to miss out on that, because it is also always fun to create
in a group of people, but so also when you are alone. Doesn't it?

It's easy to follow up a schedule, when you have set up with other
people to make art together, but it needs much more discipline,
when you are all by yourself.
It needs the whole you!                                                                                         

Don't say: ok tomorrow I will really start ...

LET YOUR TOMORROW BE TODAY!!

Happy painting!

See you later, I got to go...
Welcome to my Blog :)
Please leave Comments below and tell me, what your trick
is not to avoid your art practice. Thank you.

Info about shipping costs

8/16/16

 As long the Summer Special is up,
there are no shipping costs for sending the artwork to you, whether within or outside the USA.
However, to make sure that I do not pay out of my own pocket to send the artwork of your choice to you, I will take a minimum amount for shipping&handling in future.
Please take this into account when making a donation also now meanwhile the Summer Special is up. Thank you.
The donation for the actually artwork is still up to yourself. Whatever you think my artwork is worth and you want to give is your choice as long as the Summer Special is announced. (So let me say, you choose a painting and want to give $40 you need to top it with the minimum $$ for shipping. $45 and more in that case.) 
 
Otherwise, from and with FALL 2016,
 I will be taking shipping costs for either way, inside or outside USA.
 For USA I think $8 are acceptable up to a size of 9x12 inches and what comes  over that, will be $10-20 and more, depending of the size of the artwork and it's packing.

Outside USA however, the costs to ship the artwork are horrendous high!

Therefore, for a 9x12 inch piece  $20 are appropriate. What comes higher in size will be $20-30 and more, depending how huge the artwork is and it's packing.

Please consider those prices to be included in the donation amounts I suggest under the year, when no Specials are otherwise announced!
 
All artworks marked with shipping free  right now, will fall under this confinement.

I will make changes from time to time and under each artwork I will exchange the free shipping statement with the new ruling, so it will be more clear for the visitors of my site what to take into account when making a donation.
This new ruling will become effective for all of my paintings and drawings this Fall, when the Summer Special runs out. 
Computergraphics however are exempt from this new ruling because no expenses for shipping are incurred.!

Thank you for your understanding. I hope you enjoy your summer as long it persists and also my Summer Special although the change !~ Shalom!

These wallpapers are only for self-print out and each of them you can acquire via donation of your own choice until the very last day of this summer.
 You can make as much print outs you like! However it should be at least $1 for each self-print out.
This offer is only valid for these computer graphics with Scripture verses or other text.

This is a friendship deal and you should make use of that.

You can use  some of the images especially for greetings respective blessing cards to send to your friends for certain festive  occasions. You'll see how you can use it to your best.
Let me know which is your choice, image wise, and I'll take the copyright sign through zhibit out after I received your donation, so your download will be copyright free and not shine through the print out!
THANK YOU!

Website update 2-11-15

2/11/15

the Father's heart

ღ♪*•.¸¸¸.•*¨♪ღ♪¨¨*•.¸¸¸.•*•♪ღ♪

Dear Friends,

just want to let you now that tonight -2/11/15- I updated my Home page, About page and Contact page of my website at www.zhibit.org/bms
Please check it out.

Thank you also for telling other people you know about my artworks and by giving them the link of my web page enabling them to have a look. I'll appreciate that very much.

Please contact me for pricing any time over my contact page if you like some piece so much, that you want to buy it. 

I have been starting another acrylic class this winter and hope to sell some "oldies" of mine to invest in new oil color& acrylics as well  canvasses.

The 2 watercolor paintings I added to this bulletin are for sale. The big heart of our heavenly Father I set up for $80, and the other one called Praise Yahuah for $ 150.
If you are interested to buy, please contact me.

To improve my skills and talents in oil & pastel I am still on a search for non-costly classes (best free), like the classes you can join at Path with Art for free, but they have only water color & acrylic or ink and charcoal classes.   Please let me know if you know something related.

Let me please also know if you like me to paint something for you especially - a portrait of you or your pet f.ex. Again,please contact me over my contact page for the reason.

Many thanks and more blessings~
yours Brachaim
