I cannot believe that Christmas is a week away! December has been a fickle month with the weather. We have had rain, snow, sleet, 60 degree weather, and below zero weather. Maine, as always, is not sure what it wants. I think that is why I cannot believe that we will celebrate Christmas so soon. I feel short changed on the lead up to the holidays.
I have been trying to maintain my creative streak. I sometimes don’t get a chance to work on anything but this week I was able to squeeze in two illustrations of a Cotton Tail Rabbit and a Cardinal. I might give the Cardinal to my Grandmother, she loves those red birds!
My brain has been full of so many ideas lately! I have been trying to get the ideas on paper when I can. Not in the middle of teaching a class of course, but often, that is when and where an idea sparks. It is so great to finally have my creative juices flowing again…..it has been a long time.
Inspiration has been popping up everywhere! A few amazing blogs by other artists, my students, and music. Hopefully this will continue to grow and I will keep nurturing it!
