Timeout for Art: Playamart Treasures


This is one of my favorite sites. The content is always interesting, & I love the artwork. I found this post especially interesting, & thought you might like to read it also.

It takes little effort to be creative, but I think that many people say, “I have no talent,” and rarely attempt to create art for the joy of the moment.  They have not given themselves permission to loosen their inhibitions and play!   Have you ever asked, “What am I going to do today?” while wishing some magic genie would pop out of a bottle and transform a boring day into a more-enriching one?

"What are we going to do today?" “What are we going to do today?”

Sometimes it’s a fear of being critiqued.  Sometimes it’s fear of failure; sure failure…

About Karen's Stone Soup

Welcome to Stone Soup with Karen Samenow. I named my blog Stone Soup because it's a little of everything. You may find art or music, or inspiration. I'm an artist, a spiritual medium, and I'm always learning more and exploring. I hope you find us interesting.

  1. This is one of my favourite sites too. I find the posts fascinating and inspirational. This year I am going to take more time out for art. The shed beckons – I miss it. 😄

    Have a wonderful week Karen and I hope the weather is kind to you.

    It is raining here after an intense heatwave which is lovely. 😄


    • Hi to both of you! Thanks so much for the ‘thumbs up’ though neither of you need encouragement – you’re both highly talented, and your work stands on its own w/o my help or nudging!

      I am pleased to be using faster internet right now in the Guayaquil (Ecuador) airport, where I am waiting on a friend who’s plane is an hour late. There’s loud alegre music conflicting with my thought process, but it’s nice to be in one place and making a slight dent in the wordpress world of friendships ans support.

      Thanks again!
