Creating is something that I can't live without. If I go too many days without creating something, I tend to feel anxious and disjointed. For the past week, I have been working on stock for the holidays and upcoming shows, so while I was re-creating items, I didn't have time to make anything new. After about the fifth day, I knew I had to take a break from the sweat shop and make something new. I spent the morning creating and felt renewed again. I was so excited to be creating that I decided to really take the time to enjoy the process and make notice of the small inspirations that sprung up along the way. Here's what inspired me:
Some lovely shapes and the shine of the light
Suddenly a window appears
Brush strokes, shine & the wonderful texture of canvas
A circle of light
I have more pictures from my creative whirlwind, but I'll save them for my next post. Take some time this week to be inspired by your creative process. Sometimes I think we focus too much on the final product and not enough on how we got there. Pay attention to the different texture, shapes, colors and images you create in order to get to that final masterpiece.
