I have been working on this piece for a few weeks now. I used collage elements as the base and relied on Golden Fluid Acrylics to add in other elements. The piece sat there staring at me. I was happy with the flowers and tree but felt there was something else to add. The other day I was struck with a huge burst of creativity juices and decided to photocopy a picture of me when I was 2 and added it to the piece. I also added Pepper, my dog, to include something present in my life. Pretty happy with it!
Yesterday was another great day full of ideas. I kept going to my journal to write down something, I was afraid I would probably forget them. The minute I got home from school, I pulled out all my paints, and papers, and brushes and set to work. It was a successful afternoon of creating, but I was disappointed with the end result. I just can’t seem to make something that I feel expresses me. I worked, and over worked a couple paintings and they turned out dark and moody. I was hoping for happy and colorful. I decided that my mood was the cause and created the effect.
I keep hoping every day will be another day of creative ideas just waiting to be used. There are some days when I’ve got nothing. I really, really, really want to find something that carries me away for a few weeks rather then have all kinds of little creative ideas that lead to a quick ending. Usually with me not liking it. Just gotta keep going and give everything a try.
