I have joined the land of blogging. I know I am now a part of the unfathomable mass of those who blog. I feel it is somewhat arrogant of me to assume I should have any thoughts so monumental and meaningful, I feel inclined to share them with distant friends and family as well as a potentially infinite number of strangers. Therefore, I have asked myself what it is I am ultimately hoping to achieve in the creation of my own Naked Carly Art blog.
What do I hope to achieve?
As a human, I find forcing myself to sit and write makes my thoughts and ambitions become far more succinct. Sharing these words provides a reason to write. As people, I think we all have an innate desire to connect with others; we want to be known—to be understood.
As an artist, I want to share my work, artistic process, conceptual development and simply what makes me a part of my work. I hope viewers will gain a better understanding of my imagery as well as me as a human (Although, I suppose that is the primary goal of any blogging artist). I would also like to network with other artists. I believe we are all constantly learning and improving; we should allow ourselves to be pushed creatively. Other artists motivate and inspire me to try new techniques, develop my style and push past my artistic comfort level. I hope this can possibly be a venue to inspire others.
