Julie Cameron author of The Artist’s Way, which I read for the first time in the mid-90′, was the first time I was exposed to the concept of an Artist’s Date. I haven’t read The Artist’s Way for years, but it sits on my bookshelves as a book that had influence on my life as an artist.
I had grand ideas for when I first saw that prompt, but I wasn’t able to do an artist date out and about as I have had a migraine the last 2 days. So instead I took some me time, by staying in bed longer this morning. I read some of Voyager by Diana Gabaldon and then the little love in the photo came to get attention and pets from me. It ended up being just the kind of artist date I needed to help me through my migraine and on to other tasks and art time.
