When I began writing this blog post, the challenges of the coronavirus had not begun here…so now it has even more meaning!
If you’ve followed my blog, you know its focus has been on “Using Creativity in Everyday Life“. At no other time in my life has flexibility, creative solutions, and novel ways of doing things been so quickly necessary for all people, collectively, worldwide.
I hope this post will offer some encouragement to everyone’s day…
This time of year, when I’m tired of gray winter days (or “stay at home” guidelines!)…during this time of great change…it seems that Nature begins giving hints of brighter days ahead!
The first peek of flowers…
A pop of amazing color when I glance out my studio window…
AsSummercomes to an end…Students and teachers are returning to school, and our days in the Southwestern mountains of Virginia are growing cooler!
It’s hard for me to believe that Septemberis just around the corner! Signs ofAutumnare beginning to appear in the leaves of the trees, as hints ofred, yellow, andorangeare peeking out from the sea ofgreen!!
I am Finally back in the Studio after traveling and spending time doing special things on long Summer days. This change of pace gave me new inspirations …new motivation… & new ideas for creating Art!
Everywhere you are….
Everywhere you look…
Are wonderful colors….
Also, interesting patterns & textures…
And experiences that awaken our senses!
These kind of life experiences ignite my Creativity!…
As Fall arrives, I am now back in the Studio, working on new art & creative projects! Stay tuned to hear all about them Soon!!! 🙂
How about you?
*What life experiences encourages You to be Creative?*
Sometimes on gray, Winter days, the idea of Spring feels very faraway…And then, during a walk last week on a warm, sunny day, I stumbled onto this “pop of color“!
A wonderful, unexpected surprise!! So Nature provided a sneak peak of the colorful displays that are being planned beneath the surface!! I’m reminded that in Life, though I may not love the “Winter times“, perhaps they are necessary, in order to have the time for preparation, inspirations, and finally renewal…
So, this week is off to a good start here in the studio….with a burst of encouragement…knowing that tomorrow another ice storm is headed our way…but more confident that Spring is just under the surface and for me to just continue in the same manner~~here in the studio & in my Life! 🙂
I’d love for you to share with us in the Comments below!
