Creativity is in all of us.....
Yesterday I joined the Ultimate Blog Challenge and found a new world of blogs. One of the many that I liked is about "Creative Confidence". The author, has assignments each day to nurture creativity within us. I think we all have ideas floating around and have to latch onto them. Sometimes it takes encouragement to recognize the ideas. Anyway, these are the things I tell myself.
Here's a link to the blog for today: http://minetteriordan.com/day-13-playing-with-colors-part-3/
Yesterday's post was about visiting a museum, something I love to do, but since it is an hour long drive to the National Gallery and the many museums in Washtington, DC, I just start looking at my art books when I feel in a slump and before you know, I can't wait to start a painting.
For this one, I just had to look at this vase of peonies that someone gave me to get started on a painting. (The raspberry ones might be from my garden, but someone nice gave me the star of the painting, the pink one.)
