Back in the Rhythm

So the past few days I have not been able to keep my hands clean...like, seriously!


I have been starting at least one new projects every day (...yes, without finishing the old ones lol). In short my creativity has been ON IT!! 

After my last proper vlog, where I basically said I was taking a break from art, that little niggling feeling that comes up when mojo leaves for a while began to creep in. That feeling that you are just too creatively tired & then the worry when you cannot see a foreseeable future when you will have the energy again. Of course I did have it again, and it has come back with avengeance.


I have been doing all kindsa random stuff, completely immersed in glue, paint, plans and joyI'm trying to show images without actually showing images...because obviously you know these projects will end up being shared as videos or tutorials =)

okay, here's one lil thing (but he is part of a much bigger creation so it's ok)

I think it has all happened since I brought the Jade Buddha back into my indoor studio. The past few years (before I even took to posting online) he has lived on my desk, until I put him in my outdoor studio this autumn - about the time my creative energy started ebbing. A strange thought occurred to me...or perhaps it is not that strange, as the creative flow has suddenly become abundant again now he's back!

look how happy he is; he's home, watching over the processes

So that's it, all I can really share without giving away upcoming stuff (you know I like to keep things a surprise!). I just wanted to do a post as a reminder (to myself as much as anybody else) that though it sometimes beats so quietly we worry that it's stopped, our rhythms of creativity are always still beating... And deep down we know it. We know that it just runs like anything else our life, sometimes so loudly it's hard to handle (without paint flying like a shower anyhow!) and other times it beats softly in order to allow for another rhythm to have the focus it requires. 

Hopefully I should have a video ready in a few days =D 
happy creating
xoxo

  5. Missing you Jennibellie! You always inspire me. And isn't nice to know your not alone with the ebb and flow of creativity. We just gotta stop worrying so much and take it as it comes. And have the faith that it will return when it fades for awhile. Looking forward to all your creative adventures and so glad you share them with us! Hugs! deb

  12. I find my creativity to be very cyclical. Makes sense. Nature is cyclical...why not us, too. Glad you are having fun and the mojo is back!! :)
