Risk and Adventure (in Art and Life) [48]

orange suitcase Art Juice podcast

This week, we discuss how important risk and adventure are in our work and in our lives. Can we have one without the other? Do we tend to take risks in some areas of our lives while avoiding them in others? And what is the payoff when we do venture out of our comfort zone?

The last module of Louise’s Find Your Voice course is all about risk and adventure. Alice has just been on an adventure of her own to Mexico – one that Louise also could have experienced but chose not to.

We also discuss the emergence of new things in our work. How do we know when a new direction is meaningful as opposed to being an aberration? How do we choose which ideas to follow and which to let go? Do we actually need to decide anything or can we just let the work develop? 

I mention a painting I started which seems to signify something new – I’ll share it below with a possible (subconscious!) influence!
