Many of you who follow my FB page have seen this picture, it is by my husband, he has an amazing perspective. This image inspired me, I had to paint it. Driven to create art. I completed it in one day. A fever came over me and I knew it had to finish it that day or not at all.
Thinking about the creative process and any craft worth learning. It is all about the time I take to practice.
I look back over my work and cringe, yet I see each piece whether it be a painting, a sketch or short story, I am one step closer to who I want to be.
The process is painstakingly SLOW. I will not give up.
Instead I give thanks for the inspiration that flows through me. My world is a bounty of paintings not painted and stories just waiting to be born.
There is a constant flow of natural beauty, even on a misty morning in Brogo.
The amusing thing is my husband encouraged me whilst I painted this picture and then the next day I found him sitting at the easel and painting a beautiful Friesian, he has not had time to paint for a very long time, he said…….
“Watching me paint inspired him to get back into it.”
When we create we pass it forward to someone else.
This week my daughter and I venture into the city, a place I use to love. A break from social media, no internet, no computer, just the two of us sharing time together with a few million other beings.
YES I will have my camera.
YES I will capture something to inspire my soul to KEEP learning and hopefully inspire you to keep moving forward.
Share with me your challenges what are you learning today?
