Poco a Poco

Visual Journal for a Creative EntrepreneurPoco a Poco, it’s an everyday Spanish phrase for little by little. That’s the best way to describe my process for the past two years while this blog sat quietly, patiently awaiting my return to the creative process. Life changes do that to you – make you quite for awhile.

It’s been almost two years since I left the comfort of my Bay Area lifestyle, with so many friends and creative opportunities all around me. I moved first to Costa Rica, and then began spending my time between Costa Rica and Panama, and now, I’m living full time in Panama, in a mountain community where the air is fresh and the hills are always green.

I’ve had small periods of creativity and artmaking, but lacking a studio space it was difficult to spread out and enjoy the process. That was only an excuse. The reality was I just wasn’t ready to let myself luxuriate in the beauty of art. Instead, I embraced nature and the wonders of the tropical rainforest jungle, exploring a world that was totally new to me.

But these days I’m feeling the pull of my creative spirit, and feel the deep need to embrace my process again. My materials are changing, as I don’t have all the high tech goodies to play with here, but the fundamental current of my creative spirit remains, and is calling me to come out and play again.

As I recreate my art and my life here in Panama, I am embracing the fact that I have always been a Creative Entrepreneur. I want to thank @VenessaMiemis for sharing her plans to attend a Creative Entrepreneur workshop in Mexico, and giving me the courage to visit Lisa Sonora Beam’s blog site which gave me the kick in the pants I needed to begin writing again and sharing my creative life with you once more.

    Gasp! How great to see a new post, and to not wonder whether you were still creating! I started following your blog ages and ages ago, loved the digital monoprinting. I’d love to hear what your new materials are and how new surroundings affect your art. So glad you posted Lyn!
