I really enjoy Caren McCaleb's YouTube channel, eagleowlcrow. She is a film editor and a dancer and I think she paints as well. Some of her videos are a bit obscure, but I like the one above, particularly part 3 describing the theory of 'available-ism', which is simply "using what you have" to make your ideas come to life, rather than putting them off because you don't have exactly what you think you need. I'm trying to work more like this - rather than thinking of a million and one reasons why I can't do something, I am going to think laterally, improvise and use what is at hand.
This is Blogtoberfest day 17, and I am feeling a bit fatigued. A bit like Grandma Mermaid below - Middle-aged Mermaid's mother. I don't have a name for her yet. She needs a proper name, not just 'Grandma Mermaid'. Any ideas?
