Getting in the Mood
by Miriam Schulman, @schulmanArt
For my artist interviews I always ask other artisans what kind of rituals they have for staying calm and focused. I always find that a challenge. I have a complex set of rituals I need to follow in order to get my mind calm, focused and ready for creative outpourings.
Here are my top Four painting rituals:
Light A Candle
|Scented Candles in the happiest Spring Shades by madycandles|
|Blue Lotus Tea by HarmonyHerbals|
|Music Garland by RidingTriumph|
Slip into something more comfortable
|Overalls made to order by BowandArrowApparel|
I have several pairs of overalls. A well fitted pair that is both stylish and functional serves as my daily painting uniform. I own a few in a mixture of vintage and new styles, short and long. When searching on etsy, I was looking for someone who makes them herself and my heart did a leap when I found the designer Anna Toth of BowandArrowApparel. Her shop offers several sexy options. The overalls pictured left are made to order in her sweet little studio in North Carolina. She goes to great lengths to ensure their quality and ruggedness, while maintaining their classic style.
What rituals do you have?
