Got focus?

When I was applying to college it never occurred to me to apply with the focus of a career in the arts. I thought art was something I was only supposed to do in free time – in college you went for a ‘high brow’ career. After multiple changes in my major I graduated with a Bachelor’s in Sociology, with emphasis on Justice Administration. (And then I went into Information Technology, but that’s another post…) I’ve had a great career in IT, and with my new work from home position I now have more time to draw and create more frequently. But feel that I lack focus in my metalsmithing, that I can’t seem to find a clear focus in my design asthetic – flora, fauna, geekery, serious, whimsical, resin work… the list could go on and on because I love it all. So, I sometimes wonder if this is because I didn’t go to ‘Art School’. Would I have gained a more direct focus there? I honestly don’t know.  On Tuesday I begin a refresher course in metalsmithing with one of my favorite instructors, and hoping that lends itself to a little more direction. But for now, I’ll just go with it and keep on practicing.

If you have any tips on developing a focus please let me know. I’d love to hear from you.
