Finding inspiration by doing something different
Today continued my search for finding inspiration, this is actually part 3, I’ve taken you along my journey for the last 3 weeks, when I was feeling burnt out and no creativity.
But this week I “Did something different”
That’s one of my go-to things to do, when feeling stuck, and not just with art but with anything. Is to get out of my head, change things up, think about something else.
So I took a drive to the lake… Lake Erie is about 25 minutes from my house and it feels like the ocean. Especially on the day that I went, it was windy and blustery and the waves were crashing hard against the sand.
It was just what I needed, I don’t know if it was the sting of the cold wind on my face or the icy water splashes at my feet but it felt so good!
I felt like a weight had lifted, I could see what I would create and ideas started to flow. I took pictures and just sat in the cold, said a prayer of gratitude and hurried home to paint out my experience.
This is why I share this week how important to ourselves and our creativity that doing something different.
I’ll share more about it in the video. Have fun watching
