Making time for art was challenging over the past month. Wrapping up summer activities, getting started with fall ones, it seemed there was not enough time. However, we all know that’s not true. Time was taken up fretting about various things and getting stuck back in old ruts. To bust out of my ruts I picked up Your Inner Critic is a Big Jerk. And Other Truths About Being Creative. by Danielle Krysa at my local library (Danielle Krysa is also the author of The Jealous Curator, a blog I like to follow). A few chapters in and I was feeling inspired to get off my bum and make time to be creative.
It was a beautiful sunny day in my part of the world today (a rarity this month, which has seen more snow than I remember for September in a very long while). On the trail I could actually hear the leaves falling off the trees. So my entreaty to you is to go find somewhere where you can hear the leaves falling, let yourself settle in to the sounds of the woods and just enjoy.
Here is some work inspired by my walk.
