Nature’s Winter Art

Inspirations are found at times, such as during long walks through a garden, strolls along the beach at sunrise, or sightseeing on a trip to another state, or country! ~~~

A Swim in Winter…

Recently on a sunny, slightly warmer winter’s day, I took a break and got outside~~walking by the ice covered Duck Pond! These times experiencing the wonders of nature are part of the creative process…time to “see“…to think…to imagine…to experience new things…and

Ice designs on the Lily Pond…

 

 

Waterfall ice sculpture…
Design from Motion…

…to witness the art that Nature creates with the materials on hand!

Creativity IDEA!~~Take inspiration from Nature and create something this week from what is currently around you. For example, make a meal with only the ingredients you currently have in your kitchen and pantry! Or, think of things you can do, within your current situation, to create new solutions or possibilities in your work or business…or as a parent with your children.

Can you think of other ways that Nature’s artistic flair might inspire you?   🙂

Creativity “IDEAS”

This past month a special group of Art Lovers, Art Collectors and Creatives in Life received the first Studio NewsNotes by email! In it they got a 1st Glimpse of my latest art project, learned about what was new this month in the studio (I will be sharing that here very soon! 🙂 ), and received a Creativity IDEA to try. I want to regularly give IDEAS, to those who receive the Studio NewsNotes, ~ a Something to try for adding more Creativity to their daily lives!

The Creativity IDEA from the July Studio NewsNotes was:

* Sit in a different spot in a room!…in a classroom, office conference meeting, or living room watching TV. What do you notice? Anything new?… A different perspective?

If you would also like to be updated by email, and join a very special group of people receiving the studio’s NewsNotes, please Sign-up Here...or see the sidebar!

Who I am and Why I am Here! 2015…

It is 2015! Wow, how time does fly….I am not new to blogging but I want to review, learn new things with WordPress Blogging 101, and make changes that may take me in new directions!

I originally began this blog and website to create a professional on-line presence, sharing the things that are part of who I am~human development and family education and art/design. In Lifeweavings: A Creative Journey, my focus has been ~“The art of life…creativity in human development and artistic expression.” 

My first blog post was March 2011. 

“Today I am beginning this new blog…It’s good to have you here to begin this journey with me! I believe we are all weaving our own individual lives as we meet the challenges and joys of each and every day. Whether we are artists by trade or of life, creative problem-solving is a helpful tool. In our complex times, simple answers and solutions are not always available and exploring many possibilities is required.”

I am here to explore the principles of creativity in living daily life, and as an artist in designing and creating self-expressions to share my process and journey. These themes and ideas have been a continuing interest of mine.

If you also enjoy the creative process, want to consider ways creativity can enhance life experiences and family challenges, or are an artistic, creative person looking for encouragement and ideas, I invite you to visit this blog often!  

Welcome….
