My, how time flies...
Can't believe it's been a week since i last posted!
There's been very little creativity in my world lately.
I've hit a wall.
A dry spell.
I could always push myself and post something anyway,
but it would most likely bore the hell out of everyone,
and i don't want to do that.
I don't want to be boring.
Plus, I'm not in the practice of pushing -
myself or others.
Things always get done eventually.
There's enough pressure in the world already.
Living a creative life is an ebb and flow.
Like the tides.
As much as art is an obsession for me,
there is still a need to shut down now and then
and pull away from the paints and pens.
Breathe in the good,
breathe out the bad.
Walk on the frozen beach.
Read poetry instead of twitter.
Look at the moon and stars in the night sky.
(art junk table, piling up)
I've intentionally pulled myself away lately
from social media - something that feels
more right to me with each passing day.
I've got very little art for you,
but i've gathered a few little inspiring videos.
At least i thought they were inspiring.
I hope you like them.
Chuck Close - an american artist who sees through different eyes.
And this - monks making sand mandalas...
So beautiful -
a wonderful lesson in patience
and the impermanence of everything.
How could one not be inspired by this?
A reminder that art is everywhere
and one vision can change lives.
And this one always makes me smile...
Thanks for visiting here.
Wishing you a green light kinda day.
