This small piece gave me fits! I think there is a lot to be said for an artist having some peaceful, creative moments in life so the work flows from that rather than from a stressed out existence that is unfortunately become the norm for this world! Too many obligations and stressors that, if we let them, interfere! I found myself working on this in snatched bits of time, so there was not the usual time I usually spend to really become a part of what I am doing.
It started out fun and ok...then I got busy! whew!
Even though the photo I took was a good one...the composition seemed ok...I found myself at one point stumped as to how to pull it together. I found the answer in the middle of the night last night...the final addition of a vertical pulled it back from the place it was living that didn't make me happy. So, the reminder that we find our creative edge in the quiet moments of life was a strong one. I'm going to SLOW down the crazy pace and live inside myself more...I will be happier, and my creations will be easier off the tip of my brush! A few days on the road with my husband with my papers, paint and camera sounds heavenly right now...working in a new environment...no reminders of the dust bunnies or the dirty kitchen or laundry to distract...just a balcony off some nice hotel room with, hopefully a beautiful view!
