"Surrender doesn't obstruct our power; it enhances it."  -Marianne Williamson

The profound words that I am about to share are not my own but they are extractions of a larger work, previously featured in print.  The words come from a book entitled, If Life is a Game, These are the Rules by Cherie Carter-Scott, PH.D.  This little book is among the many on my nightstand and throughout my home.  I refer to this book often and recently these words within it have called out to me and I wanted to share them with you.

Surrender is the transcendence of ego and the release of control.  When you surrender to your lessons that arise, you allow yourself to flow with the rhythm of life, rather than struggling against it.  The peaks and valleys that mark your personal path become easier to traverse when you surrender to them.

    The key to coming to peace with your role as a perpetual student lies in surrendering to what is, rather than trying to create what you envision should be.  If resistance has been a theme throughout your life, then surrender will appear in your curriculum.  If you are one of those people who always have to do things his/her way or who possess a strong, willful ego, then surrender will seem like defeat to you.  But surrender only signifies defeat in war.  In life it signifies transcendence. 

    This is not to say that you should remain passive and just let life happen to you.  Rather, you need to learn to surrender to those circumstances over which you never really had any control anyway.  If you surrender to the fact that you will always be presented with lessons, over and over again, you can stop trying to second guess the divine plan.  You will be amazed how much easier life gets when you stop resisting and controlling it, and ride the waves toward the fulfillment of your destiny.

POWER... 
"There isn't a person anywhere who isn't capable of doing more than he thinks he can."  -Henry Ford

This infographic will help your creative team stay on task and will provide a quick reminder of what is needed.  Follow these key simple steps to come up with a clients brand mantra. 

Creating a clients brand mantra is basically
a simple four step process:  define, describe, determine and then put it all together in 5 words or less.  Define the clients emotional appeal; how do people feel about and benefit from the client.  Describe with clarity what or who the brand is for; who/what entities find it appealing.  Determine what makes your client unique.  Draw from your list and draft a short phrase that communicates clearly who your client is; this is your clients new brand mantra.

The brand mantra is not the same as a tagline.  It should resonate internally within an organization and be the guiding force for decisions and strategy; something returned to again and again.

I designed this infographic using GIMP about a year ago and thought I'd pull it out and re-share.  I hope you find it helpful, use it and share it.

<![CDATA[What Is Your Intended Message?]]>Mon, 09 Nov 2015 21:38:06 GMThttp://zieboldimagery.com/artist-blog/what-is-your-intended-messageBy Sandra K. Ziebold
Everyone can keep things more simple by determining intention.  In all of your endeavors staying focused on your goal or message will keep you on track toward your purpose.  You don't want to drift into waters that are counterproductive toward your goal or message.  Knowing clearly what your trying to achieve is motivating and keeps you engaged and invested.

The goal for artists is typically to have their completed work creatively convey a message that emotes. 

Once you are clear on your intended message then seek the correct partner source.  To make good use of time and to improve your chances for success seek a gallery, label, publisher or other appropriate source that resonates with your creative message.  As well if you are a gallery, label, publisher or other source then ensure you are identifying and courting the appropriate message provider for your venue.

In last weeks guest post by Lisa Bick, she shared with us the intended message behind her work. 

"My paintings depict the aura of life and art -of loss, desire, longing and death, memory and fragments of information."  -Lisa Bick
Personally my work takes many forms, among them photography, writing and mixed-media painting and it resonates from a realist perspective with a focus most often on simplicity, nature and the environment.  The intended message behind my work is exploring realism and conveying life's complexity, simplicity and reality to inform and inspire others.  Here is a whimsical piece...

Beauty of a Moss Covering
Excerpt from Reflections of Nature a visual and literary collective work.  © Sandra K. Ziebold

Beautiful carpets of moss are along my chosen path today.  Intensely green the feathery-plush covering is thick and obviously has found a favorable reproducing location.  The coloring is a vast contrast to the twigs and other plant life nearby.  I embellish the idea that the rock under the blanket feels very snug.  Spattered about...on both sides of the path the coloring of the moss dances in and out of view.  Suddenly a rain shower descends upon us.  It is as if we are being entertained with a drum solo.  As the rain makes its way among the trees and plant life it impacts at different rates and strength.  Flooding the path with a drip, plunk, thud the rain seems to have a rhythmic song all of its own.  The dancing moss and drumming rain drops make my walk an invigorating experience.  By the paths end I feel as though I have been wrapped in a quilt and have been serenaded by a magnificent drummer.  The way that nature can touch our very core, and make us forget anything troubling for awhile, is a marvelous gift.
People are more invested when they have a purpose...

<![CDATA[Encaustic Art:  My Paintings Are Journals]]>Thu, 05 Nov 2015 18:43:43 GMThttp://zieboldimagery.com/artist-blog/encaustic-art-my-paintings-are-journals Guest Post By Lisa Bick

LISA BICK

And now I find myself living in Northern New Mexico. I left Indiana six months ago after 35 years planted in peony springs and cornfield summers. It came about due to a powerful need for a new life that does not exorcise old demons but builds on the past - a past which I tend to view slightly too romantically. I’ve learned from grief because I have been to the dark side of the moon of solitude, anxiety and isolation. And I’ve learned from love and life that there is always fire in the snow. I decided that for me, an artist and a writer, to change something as fundamental as the raw landscape outside my window that perhaps inspirations and fresh perspectives and ideas would flow. Not quite so simple.

I grew up in Washington, D.C. where my first love was the National Gallery. My mother would drop me off for long afternoons there when I was young. The Textile Museum, the Renwick, the Corcoran and the Phillips Collection feature prominently in my mind’s catalog of impressions. It was inconceivable to me, even as a child, that my world would not include art and creating with my hands. I didn’t realize then that my heart and personal maps were just as important in the making of that art.

I was also deeply impacted by the unrest that simmered throughout DC at the time. I was swept into the protests against the Vietnam War, the indignities of racial riots, and the changing tides of culture in the late 60s and early 70s. And then, when I was 18, my oldest brother took his life and I learned about personal wounds. All of my youth and all of my coming of age during this time is carved into my psyche and all find ways to infiltrate my paintings and writing.

Printed and Dyed Textiles were my Fine Arts concentration in college guided by the tutorage of Joan Sterrenburg who also was the founder of the Handmade Paper Facility at Indiana University. Her unwavering connection with nature and her own personal handmade life sent me on a path to weaving and photo silkscreening and textile dyes and stitched fabrics as well as the incorporation of natural objects into my fledgling artistic efforts. She taught me the means to heal grief and to express it all at once. It would, however, be years before my hands were plunged into buckets of beeswax.

As I moved into an unwanted phase of my life after a marriage of 27 years and the demanding thrill of creatively raising three children, I found myself wanting a new focus. On a trip to Santa Fe I was awe-struck while standing in front of a painting by Shawna Moore. I knew encaustic from days of Art History classes but in the antiquities sense only. I felt my old primal need to learn a new skill. I immediately scheduled a workshop with her. Shawna’s calm approach to teaching and her resolute support without judgment resonated with me. What I found that I loved the most about encaustic was my ability to “weave” by layering the wax. It felt like textiles because images or scrims of color could layer on top of each other like veils of sheer silk. I loved the idea that I could encrypt poetry (I keep Pablo Neruda at hand) and maps and hidden meanings and threads and leaves and all those expressive things that I was used to incorporating into my work-into wax. The luminosity is what other artists rave about and it is so true. I would be remiss not to mention that the old hippie in me who was already on a rampage to save the bees connected to the organic nature of wax.

Picture
Through my paintings, I trace my travels-from the cisterns of Istanbul to the frescoes of Florence to the tragic beauty that is India. There are turning points and mournings and moments of my own illumination as well as disappointments and dead ends and a deep fear of being a failure or a phony. My paintings depict the aura of life and art -of loss, desire, longing and death, memory and fragments of information. I have always been a journal keeper and suddenly I find that my paintings are journals, too.

Tutti Frutti, Encaustic and mixed media on panel, 20 Inches x 20 Inches, 2013

I was in Torino, Italy, sifting through books and maps and postcards at a flea market. I found a little school workbook from 1920. When I took it to my studio later, I randomly chose a page to print onto silk. That was laid into the wax along with assorted items from that trip like a candy wrapper and a lovely museum entrance ticket. I worked and worked and it never said what I was trying to make it say. So I took white wax and blocked out almost the entire thing. As I scraped away little windows on the trip, the first thing exposed were two words from two separate lines in the school boy’s workbook. “Tutti” on one line and “Frutti” from the line beneath. My daughter translated the page for me. Incredibly, the random page I had chosen for my wax discussed the benefits of bees in Italy. “They bring us honey and wax and all the fruits through pollination.” So, “Tutti Frutti” was born and I scrawled, “il miele and la cera” meaning, “the honey and the wax” in Italian on top of it all.

“There are all kinds of silences and each of them means a different thing. There is the silence that comes with morning in a forest, and this is different from the silence of a sleeping city. There is silence after a rainstorm, and before a rainstorm, and these are not the same. There is the silence of emptiness, the silence of fear, the silence of doubt. This kind of silence can speak. It is a soundless echo.” And one I seek to capture. — Lisa Bick

<![CDATA[Time:  Creative Thought, Full Vision, Implementation ]]>Mon, 02 Nov 2015 21:46:30 GMThttp://zieboldimagery.com/artist-blog/time-creative-thought-full-vision-implementation By Sandra K. Ziebold
Picture
How long do you take with an initial creative thought before that nugget turns into a full blown business plan, strategy, change, painting or other creative realization? 

Don't you just love the creative fireworks that are pervasive and you just can't shake them?!  That tiny little creative thought that turns into a full vision.  The key is to take your time and let it foster into something great and then implement.  Once you have the full vision then you need to take action.  It's okay to tweak and modify along the way but just get started.  Note down your thoughts, write it, draw it and then continue with the process until fully realized. 

Time can definitely be a challenge.  Think of it this way, doing just one thing each day that furthers the process toward completion then at least you are moving forward and not just sitting on a full vision unrealized and not in progress.  Believe in what you visualize and make it happen.

I'm always very busy and in the midst of all of it, I'm constantly getting new ideas.  The key is managing your time well.  Right now I have three creative ideas that are pervasive.  I have the full vision of another mixed-media painting and I have two new startup business ideas.
  Time is definitely a challenge but one I'm up for!  How about you?!

What's in your head...what are you going to begin implementing today?  Your idea might be personally, professionally or philanthropically creative.  Moving forward on your idea will make you feel good and will likely have a great outcome.  Get Started!!

Picture
My envisioned mixed-media painting involves, among other things, the use of the following:

1.  24x48 Canvas
2.  Acrylic paints of various colors and mixing; but primarily a burnt red and a golden autumn hue
3.  Liquid white
4.  Black chalk
5.  Dried leaves and/or pressed decorative papers
6.  Brushes
7.  Metal spreading and scraping tool

Work that is commissioned is my main focus and it moves along much more quickly.  This vision in my head is something that I will work on as time allows.  The important thing is to keep moving forward on it or it will never get completed.  Keeping the canvas on an easel nearby with my selected array of project tools means I can easily keep at it!!


Share.  What have you begun that you'll keep moving forward on?  We'd love to hear!

It is possible to be both productive and creative.  What's really great is that creativity can help you be more productive and productivity can help you be more creative.

<![CDATA[Great Gift Giving Is A Creative Art]]>Thu, 29 Oct 2015 20:30:33 GMThttp://zieboldimagery.com/artist-blog/great-gift-giving-is-a-creative-art By Sandra K. Ziebold

Active listening and caring are key.  Pay attention to what people say and gravitate toward.  This is at the core of making a great gift choice.  If it comes from the heart and you were attentive to who they are and what they like, then your gift will surely please.  The selection of a gift for someone else should have nothing to do with you and everything to do with what you know they will like, want or need.  This applies no matter the event, holiday or if it's a just because gift.
Picture
Depending on the individual and interest area (tech, art, literary, handy-guy/gal, etc.) here are some gift giving suggestions:

  • Techies in need of a gift might just have an interest in being one of the first to get a phone drone.  This tool can be purchased for an early backer kickstarter reduced rate right now and all indications are that it will likely retail for approximately $300 after November.  They also have a high powered drone xPlusOne.  I'm intrigued!  Last week, xCraft, the company bringing us phone drone was unanimously and exponentially backed by all five sharks on Shark Tank.  view video

  • Literary lovers in need of a gift might just have an interest in a literary scarf via uncommongoods.
Picture
  • Handy-guys/gals in need of a gift might just have an interest in the amazing and very handy WORX JawSaw.

  • Art lovers in need of a gift might just have an interest in my unique original artwork Damselfly Black Velvet.  Turn your living space into an art gallery with 'Damselfly Black Velvet' by Sandra K. Ziebold.  Damselfly Black Velvet:  Framed/16x10/$105

<![CDATA[Deadlines:  Why We Love Them (And You Should Too!)]]>Mon, 26 Oct 2015 19:58:00 GMThttp://zieboldimagery.com/artist-blog/deadlines-why-we-love-them-and-you-should-too By Sandra K. Ziebold

Are deadlines essential in your business?  They certainly are for us.  We find them exhilarating!  I know...it's crazy but it's very true.  Here are just some of the reasons we love deadlines:

1.  Deadlines provide an adrenaline pumping
element of risk
2.  Deadlines get the blood flowing and inspire motivation
3.  Deadlines force you to face a concrete choice succeed (or) fail upon delivery date
4.  Deadlines force free-spirits to plan, prioritize and complete

5.  Deadlines once completed provide an internal surge of accomplishment

Ever since I can recall I've always been productively invigorated when the risk of failure from not succeeding on delivery of a task is high.  I find this to be present among many entrepreneurial creatives in my life.  It's okay to have this characteristic and it's okay to not have this characteristic.  We are all different and always remember that if we were all the same then the world would certainly be a less interesting place. 

Perhaps you are a deadline lover yourself or perhaps you should take a hard look at your team.  It's important to know who is and who isn't in possession of this characteristic because you will want to manage them differently.
Picture
Once correctly identified, here is how to retain a deadline lover:

Do you have creatives on your team that have this characteristic?  If you identify this accurately in a team member and they are not in a situation that has deadlines and motivates them to reach their full capable potential then you need to fix this issue.  You want to get the most value out of that team member and retain them by helping them grow.  You can help them achieve their goals for success by helping them find that sweet flow of productive energy that yields a desired outcome.  Correctly identified and challenged, you will find these team members to be more inspired and you will have a win-win situation.  By a win-win situation I mean the greater the chance of failure then the greater they will produce or perform and the more they will love what they are doing. 

Leaders that are deadline lovers, here is how to self-impose deadlines:

If a deadline is not provided for you because the buck stops with you or you are in a situation where you work alone and independently or your superior perhaps just hasn't been able to take the time and interest to discover what motivates you, then you must self-impose your own deadlines.  Yes, I am saying be a leader and manage your motivation.  Kick it up!!

You must honestly assess your work load, prioritize and give a date that seems reasonable to achieve this task.  Assign this date and keep it on your calendar and hold to it as if your face will be plastered on the 5 o'clock news announcing your deadline failure should you not deliver.  Often our psyche's keep putting a task off, especially if it is important to us but not essential.  Unless you're a little light on brain cells, most of us recall reality and know that this is a self-imposed situation.  We will try on occasion to work around our self-imposed discipline calendar.  When this keeps occurring then you must make your task known publicly to someone.  Do whatever it takes to get it done.  This way when you don't accomplish your goal, others know...thus you force the scenario...the greater the chance of failure the greater your chance of successful accomplishment!

Picture
Here are some common business scenarios that elicit panic or invigorated motivation based on how individuals personally react to a deadline:  public speaking, client presentations, commissioned painting, article for publication, podcast interview or show, album cover art, writing a book, web design build, illustrating a book, policies and procedures manual, tax appointment, audit, white-paper, the list can go on and on.

A note on failure:  It's important to experience failures in your life because they make you stronger, more understanding and more wise; not to mention they induce an even bigger passion to avoid the feeling again and you innately strive harder to succeed.  When you are trying new things and moving forward even when you fail it's not really a fail because you learned.  Again we are back to... get comfortable with being uncomfortable.


Picture
Let us know about your growth results from any newly identified deadline lovers on your team where this management strategy was applied.  We'd love to hear how it's going.  Let us know how it was a win-win for you both!

<![CDATA[How To Manage The Creative Fireworks ]]>Thu, 22 Oct 2015 20:49:36 GMThttp://zieboldimagery.com/artist-blog/how-to-manage-the-creative-fireworks By Sandra K. Ziebold

Creative Fireworks:
Writing and sketching on anything and everything...collecting chaotic piles of logged creative ideas which are spiraling in your mind so quickly that you don't want to forget even one of the ideas and must get it down before you forget...while more are firing one consecutively after another...

T
he visual of this is a private fireworks display inside your head...beautiful creative bursts displayed and gone...

Sound familiar?!


This has to be managed.  If you experience this wonderful gift then you know if not managed it can lead to some not so wonderful problems of forgetfulness, overwhelm and productivity struggles.

How To:
This how to manage suggestion works for many people.  Tweak it just a bit to work best for you.

First try
concentrating on taking deep slow inhales and exhales focused on slowing your breathing and thinking only about that task.
Second visualize an empty white room with just a filing cabinet in it...or a white board with just a dry erase marker in your favorite color.
The point is to...
Third clean your mind and keep it simple...
prioritize....file, white board, or delete and move on...don't get mottled in the quagmire of inconsequential insignificance. 

The really great stuff will reappear and will stick with you!

Picture
Benefit To Business:  Innovation comes about through many creative ideas.  It takes a diverse group and great creatives in the mix to get the best outcome for your business.  
Picture
Picture
Note:  If you are a creative currently stuck with no flow of creative ideas then you are experiencing the direct juxtaposition of this and don't worry it is also a common problem creatives encounter.  Staring at a task before you and completely void of an idea that works? 

Gather and play with your tools, as in the image below, and perhaps that will spark a thought and help you to prepare your best approach. 


Here is a great compilation that may inspire you: 
29 Favorite Business Tech Tools of Entrepreneurs in 2015 by Travis Wright.

Share your task and problem with your groups and gather input or call a fellow creative.
