Find the Truth and Beauty in Your Work
The Truth and Beauty process takes you on an exploration of the art you’ve made, with an eye for its uniqueness and meaning.
Along the way, you’ll meet your essential self ~ the one who doesn’t care what others think or whether there’s money in it, who creates to please herself alone.
This process is not just for traditional artists but also for life artists.
It works for writers, painters, sculptors, and poets, and those who express themselves creatively in everything they make, from homes to wardrobes to photographs.
The Truth and Beauty process is designed to take two hours, and there are two ways to do it:
- With my coaching support
You’ll be amazed at how much insight and confidence
come from this brief encounter with your portfolio.
I’d like to introduce you to a true artist: yourself.
You’ve shown persistence in building up a body of work through devotion to the craft.
Spend a few hours with your creations
and you will not be disappointed.
The beauty you encounter will move you.
The innovation there will delight you with its bravery.
You’ll see fascinating patterns woven between pieces,
holding everything together with an gorgeous through-line.
As you see your development through time,
you will marvel.
And the truths revealed will grip you
~ crucial wisdom that the world needs to hear.
Stage a retrospective for yourself.
Writers and artists: when was the last time you rambled through your past work, reminding yourself of the great value it holds for you and your audience?
You’re used to evaluating with a critical eye, rejecting what doesn’t meet your standards. You resign yourself to disappointment when your finished piece doesn’t match your original shining vision.
What if you ventured in with appreciation, ready to see new connections?
What if you prepared to be surprised even by yourself and by these pieces you thought you knew intimately?
Could you read and look at your creations with the attention and reverence of a scholar? With the mad love of a fan?
Explore your creations and move forward with purpose.
