I have put away all of my art supplies for a while, as I am feeling an urgent need to give myself a much needed break from all the thinking that goes along with all the creative doing! I have to put everything completely out of sight so that I am not stimulated out of habit, to do something. Every artist goes through this phase from time to time and knows it is a necessary one, so that we can replenish our inspiration wells.
I never know how long it will take me to feel creative again…..I have learned just to let myself be. I call this retreat from creativity, “my dream time.” In dream time, I become highly observant, reflective and enjoyably free. I spend more time thinking about and appreciating my blessings of family and friend relationships, and the beauty I see in them, and in the world wide view around me. In dream time, observation and contemplation, replenish my creative spirit.
IN DREAM TIME, I SEE BEAUTY EVERYWHERE……………………
