Sometimes I need a creative boost, especially if I find myself in a slump or I’m procrastinating over re-writes of a story. At these times, I look outside of writing for inspiration. I might listen to music and do nothing else. I might get outside and work in my flowerbeds, feeling the earth between my fingers. Or, I might feed my crafty artistic side. When I allow myself the time to get away from my notebooks and work with my hands in a way that doesn’t involve holding a pen or pencil, I feel renewed.
Last week I got an idea – I started envisioning large paper flowers on canvas but had no idea where to start but since Mother’s Day was approaching I decided to just go with it. Turns out, I really enjoy paper sculpting and painting.
The photos show the results – and the good thing is, the moms liked their gifts!
With hands of love, she comforts. With lips of love, she gives. With inspiration from the heavens, she shows us how to live…
So what do you guys do when you need a creative boost? How do you find inspiration? And I hope all of you celebrating Mother’s Day today had a wonderful one….
