We've seen those time lapse videos of plants growing from seed, seedling, to full grown plant in a matter of seconds. It's a fascinating peek into a slow process.

Acquire Art Allies
This week requires the involvement of others. Art Allies. People who will help tend your art ambitions. There are reasons why other's contributions will increase your intentions and be of benefit to them as well -

Have a Art Tweet Tuesday that involves tweeting the link of some art related event, article, or image. Short and tweet.

Something like a What-do-you-think-about-it Wednesday lunch bunch. This could be virtually or an actual lunch visit. Have everyone get 2-3 art images of styles they like. Tell who the artist is and why they like it. Summed up.
Yet another -
Do a Blog Swap Saturday email exchange. Everyone can find 1-2 blogs (or websites) that have to do with an artist or art and pass it along to the group. Simple.
I've even tried to make it a little easier for you by including text for the invite.
I'm on a quest for my inner art muse (or geek, freak, heart, smarts, etc.) As in collecting art. And I would be pleased if you joined me and a few others on this exciting art adventure. Here is what it would entail - (insert your plan) Let me know if you have any latent art ambitions that can become part of our group.
Write it down -
Date Night Idea- Invite friends over for French bread, fruit and cheese. They bring cheese and an art book they are intrigued by. Share talking about the artists and art. And the food.
Tweet me what your group of art addicts are up to @studiogal
I'll be storing your info to send you marketing and
