  • Thanks Alyson! I really enjoyed that post. It’s hard to stay positive, but if we remind each other everyday, it makes it easier! Thanks for all the advice, I love your blogs. All the best, Beth

  • I think I have commented on this previously, but wanted to say it again. We as artists have a special ability that we have nurtured and know how to use. In these times we need to crank it up to full blast. Many others lack what it is I’m talking about: CREATIVITY. So get creative as you can (which you can) about how to create way bigger than the economic news. Not everyone is unable to purchase art. And you don’t need ‘everyone’, just the ones that can!

  • Thank you! I’ve recently removed myself from several email newsletters because all they talk about is how bad things are. If you think things are going to be bad, they will be. I’ve been working hard, saving my money to build myself a new studio. I’m going ahead with my plans. You can come visit me in your cute new car!

  • Beth: Yep, we need to be here for each other. Lynne: Love it. I may need to make a new newsletter or post: Crank up the creativity! K: Wish you were closer to ABQ and Santa Fe and could pop in next week. I’ll have the cute little car! And I agree: Get off of the negative newsletter lists.

  • Just what the doctor ordered. Thanks Alyson!

  • Everyone around me is talking about the gloomy economy. I have decided to take one step at a time and dismiss negative thoughts (very challenging). And I have also decided that this is the time to take risks with my art – not just think about ideas but take action. It’s quite liberating! Thanks Alyson, for staying positive. And your new car is so cute! Katherine

  • What if they gave a recession and nobody came? We just hired contractors to build us a new patio. We’re putting energy into the economy, and believe it will be returned to us as well. There’ll always be something to frighten us – if we let it.

  • Alyson, Thanks for including my art-Connections-in your video! I love the affirmation you paired with it. I definitely feel the expanding universe right now!

  • I really love all these comments – they are really way more than comments however, they are instructions to ourselves and the universe to shape up and fly right! I really appreciate the inspiration of it and the ‘like-thinking’ because it is agreement that makes things happen. So everyone, DISAGREE with the nay-sayers and keep going toward the goals you already had! Lynne

  • I’ve just returned from a pre-election 3 day show in Carefree Arizona. The weather was hot, the crowd subdued but people were still shopping . Although they were not as extravagant as before, they still wanted to feel good. I had one couple purchase a sculpture even though he might lose his job next week. They felt they deserved to treat themselves to some artwork. This is a time to profess your passion for your art, become a better sales person and market your latest creations. The sales are still there. All is not lost as the media would have us believe.

  • I love these affirmations Alyson. Thanks you for this post, I will add these to my current daily affirmations. When that old poverty mentality starts creeping into my thoughts, I think of my grandparents who lived through the Great Depression – now those were hard times. Kind of puts our current so called financial situation in perspective doesn’t it?

  • All the commnents is very reasonable. it is very intesting video art.

  • Connections and Affirmations

    Im pleased that Alyson Stanfield chose to include my work, Connections, in her new video of artist affirmations.
    Here is the affirmation that Alyson paired with my work: The Universe is in a constant state of expansion. I am part of that and wi…
