The smell,..the taste…the warmth…helps awaken the senses and inspirations!! And, having the cup “match” the color scheme doesn’t hurt either!  🙂

~Happy Tuesday, From the Studio~

In the Studio~Experiences

Today I was thinking about “experiences“~~times in Life that we see or do something, perhaps for the first time, that gets our attention!….Perhaps it helps us to learn new things, or to encourage us in our daily activities, and maybe even to grow in a new way.

The Present Through the Past (Segovia, Spain, 2014).

Maybe artists and other creatives are more aware of and/or seek out these experiences more than some other people, and they then strive to process these explorations of Life and express them….visually in artworks… or through writing….or the movement of dance…and through the sounds and compositions of music.

When I am in the Studio designing and creating, every piece has a connection with my personal Life experiences, ideas, and feelings. They are “self expressions” gathered from my Life…in which viewers and collectors of art may identify with in some way! An artist’s creation may remind you of a similar experience, or impression you’ve had, or may give you a glimpse into something new that you have never experienced!

*A Question? What type of artistic works are you drawn to and Why?…The type that reminds you of a similar life experience, or ones that are interesting because they are new to you?  🙂

 

 

Beneath the Surface…

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“!

Beneath the Surface

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?
