Being a Shaman in Your Art Studio

Love this excerpt from Robert Genn's newsletter today talking about shamanism in art and trying your hand at creating in magical/mysterious ways like:

*Making apparitions emerge, dissolve, arise
*Making talismanic, totemic or iconic images
*Making your passions visible and tangible
*Going for materials that exalt and inspire
*Conveying your spirit, your magic, your trance
*Making meaningful motifs out of slim evidence
*Finding reliable order in the midst of chaos
*Paying special attention to birth, death, and rebirth
*And, if all else fails, telling a tall story

If you were to play shaman in your studio today, what would you create?
