Ever get creatively stuck? A good holiday and switching my creativity to other outlets always refreshes my heart.
Lately, I have been studying plants, indoor plants to be exact. I just love how beautifully green and life giving plants are. I find myself thinking about creation, talking to Father God and understanding more about rest, about beauty and about art by taking care of plants. They are incredibly forgiving, they brighten up your home and they bring a lot of joy – well me anyway.
So – been thinking of incorporating leaves into my calligraphy. I have had a play with mugs and some oil based pens. Its so satisfying making marks on ceramic surfaces. Its good to get inspired and not be too precious about who will like it, who will buy it or who cares about your work.
Here are a few things I am learning for myseld at the moment. Create because its in your nature to do so. Share it because its positive. You never know who it will bless or inspire. Forget about trying to better than everyone else. Keep giving out of a pure heart and rest a lot. I’m learning to love what God inspires me to do and stop analysing it. Just create.
