Good morning everyone. I awakened this morning with the sun shinning in my bedroom window. Bouncing out of bed all I could think of was, how blessed I am to be living in beautiful Southern California. The weather is moderate, temperatures are mostly perfect, and we have a roof over our heads. Schmaltzy I know, but my heart is filled with joy at the prospects of the day.
With a cup of coffee by my side, and some Nora Jones singing in the background I’m thinking of all of you and the creativity each of you have to offer. Many of us don’t feel like we have anything to offer, and creating anything is just not worth it. My feeling is that everything we do is worth something. If we create for the love of creating anything, that’s a good thing. I have to remember, “It’s the journey, not the destination!”
Wednesday some of my friends and myself were playing with our iPads. We were trying to find an app that allowed us even more options for creativity, and then learn to use that app. That’s where the picture came from. It’s an old picture of my old self with red hair, feathers for earrings, and glasses. An abstract watercolor from Sketch Master, one the apps I’ve collected. Just a start in the world of iPads, something my friends and I are just learning, and It’s fun and different for me, but even though it’s something I don’t want to get involved in, there is something to experimentation.
I do love to experiment!
This is pretty cool also! A negative of a picture. Maybe this would help with learning to negative shape paint, or sketch. It would be a great exercise for learning to draw. Can you see how this might be helpful? I always try new things, it never hurts.
Have a great weekend. and look at your surroundings as if there is information to be used in your creativity!
