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!
*Does your inspiration vary in the Winter time, or change with the seasons? What have you found that helps you continue with your art, work, or Life’s creative activities during these times?
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! ~~~
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
…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? 🙂
Aaah, Summertime! Maybe it’s because I was born in June, or maybe it’s because I grew up mainly in the South…But I feel more like myself when the sun is shining very warmly,
The breezes are gently blowing through the leaves,
“lightening bugs” flash across the green grass at dusk,
and Nothing tastes better than a large glass of sweet iced tea!! 🙂
I spend lots of time reading and working on the front porch,
and only occasionally nap in the hammock!…
I’m thinking up new Ideas!
