Have you ever had artist’s block? Sure you have! It sends a chill up and down the spine. Have you lost your creativity forever you may ask. Believe me it is temporary, but keep on creating.
March was a month where I had difficulty creating so I decided to just play…child’s play. I pulled out my containers of various images and had the time of my life snipping and cutting and creating. I chose images that were silly, ridiculous and absurd. I had the time of my life.
Not every art piece is a masterpiece but that does not matter. If you give a child a substrate, a variety of images, and some glue they have no hesitation in creating. Go beyond your fear and try it yourself. Yes, pretend to be a child again.
I have a few of those type of pieces to share with you and I encourage you to try the same. It will loosen you up and your creative juices will begin to pour out of you.
“Dare to be Different”
Go ahead and enjoy being a child again.
