My inspiration kept on building today, so much so that during Bunny’s naptime, I picked up my brush, and plunked down to paint. I forgot to mention in my last post that I have another source of inspiration that I draw on sometimes: my visual journals. They remind me what it’s like to have fun with art, rather than painting something planned. I have pages with cut up credit cards glued on in an interesting pattern. There are pages where I’ve written on the whole page, but not in lines left to right. I have used many different mediums and it’s fun and enlightening to go through these books. This morning when I pulled them out and had a little look through, I found a visual journal that hadn’t been used for art yet. (it had been written in at some point, but that could just be covered over with paint!) So, when I did sit down to paint, I felt the urge to have fun. To not wobble. To just paint whatever was in me to paint. (I was actually wanting to paint a landscape, which is weird for me since I generally don’t paint that!) I looked outside my window and saw a rainbow of colours. I found the tubes of paint I wanted, squirted some out, and just went for it. It felt so good to be free of a plan! And, luckily for me, the result is something I actually like quite a bit. Happy Thursday!
