Tonight is a midnight rambling, musing on how to find the daily creative me.
There are times when you can run rich, deep and engaged with your art and creativity .. and times when the well runs shallow and the ability to stop and smell those creative roses stops for a while. For me, that’s ok. I do read about many artists who push through the dull times and force themselves to work daily and I have often told myself to develop that same rigour, perhaps that’s the defining difference between those artists who reach greatness and those that remain hobbyists.
What has felt like a 6 month hiatus has actually only been 3 months, it was a nice break. While I abandoned the daily creative me in one sense I actually shifted it to another zone .. changed my medium, changed my focus and changed my daily priority. After writing 2-3 weekly creative posts for the last 2 years I stopped rather suddenly. Instead, I found my daily creative me through house renovating, shopping for lights and taps and making a little creative workshop space for me in the garage.
I have had 6 posts collated here on my computer ready to go but I couldn’t bear the idea of sitting down and typing anything! Well here I am, it’s 4am and my fingers are dancing along the keyboard as they refind that daily creative blogging me!
I am rambling and so are the images of this post. A mishmash of daily creative finds, like a little library of ideas and inspiration I have suddenly found delight in browsing through again.
Folks … I am back!
Artist unkown but sometimes the simplest of art – wire and paper is so engaging 🙂
Amazing fish tank landscapes!

Always the artist, even when I am not.
