I am taking a bitty blog break (until Monday) to open my heart & eyes to wild-inspiration. Don't be worried~ every artist needs this! I love to take artist dates, it has become a necessary part of my healthy-artist-mind schedule (lol!). I first learned about Artist Dates from Julia Cameron's early book, "The Artist's Way" and I was quickly committed.
This may be exactly what you need too!
I will go with someone or by myself and find new light, life, and love everywhere I look (Obviously, I am not hard to please!) I try to not be too controlling over the outcome and let myself be caught up in the childlike-wonder of what transpires. Sometimes serious, sometimes playful, it really is fun to see where the adventure leads~
Usually I will walk or run these long dirt roads, visit local quilt shops, or take myself out to visit old barns and charming farmers markets. Often it seems I am left catching my breath~
How about you? Where do you visit for fresh inspiration?
Thank you for your delicious and meaningful comments. I have poured over your thoughts on color and "body of work" and they have brought me greater understanding and even more questions! I love it!!!
Please know you are loved and needed,
this world is better, more colorful and alive because you are here!
