Not the kind of values you are thinking about if you're in tune with the world of art-making, but very much important kind nonetheless. These are concepts that are important to me as a person and as a businesswoman (yikes! I just called myself a businesswoman 8-O ). It's another exercise from Right Brain Business Plan. The prompt is to think back to a time in your life when you felt on top of the world and fully alive. The goal is to identify your core values. Once you have an understanding of what they are, you create a collage for each of them. I did it on index cards. The image above is actually six index card collages combined.
As with the previous exercise, I discovered (or, rather, uncovered) a few things about myself. One of them is the fact that respect is extremely important to me, which is why I can't stand bullying and condescending attitude. Apparently, only a few people (excluding my own husband) are aware that I like me some adventure. Now, I did put motorcycles and plein air painting in the same category here, but that's because plein air painting can be quite thrilling. Try it :) Also, I like my adventures to come with basic necessities of life, like hot showers.
I'm not sure I'll get to finish a painting tonight so I'm posting this instead. It kind of counts, no? I definitely spent quite a bit of time on and put quite a bit of thought into it.
What are your values? Please share in the comments! I would love to know!
