Remember last Friday, when I had a napping baby and art supplies inviting me to play? This happened.
It felt so great to just be creating and painting again.
I wasn’t trying to come up with my newest print to sell or to create my lifetime masterpiece, I just reconnected with the colors and brushes. I took images from my head and brought them to life on paper.
for no reason.
for no one else.
I loved it.
I needed to feel that way.
It’s so easy to begin to think of my art as if it’s for other people and when that happens, I believe something gets lost in the process and a bit of the magic is gone. Sometimes, we need to create just to create.
art for the sake of art.
My question for you, have you done anything like that lately? I’d love to hear about it.
Keep creating. Keep playing. Keep dreaming. Just because. Never lose that.
