When was the last time you sat down and did art? Pretended you were in grade school, high school, or college taking an art class and gave yourself permission to be a little creative? If you haven't recently I would tell you to give it a try. It's fun to play with art. It's fun to give yourself that time even if you don't think "You are an artist". We are all artist's.
This is what I completed over the weekend. I learned, don't buy cheep water colors, and don't buy cheap water-color paper, it makes a big difference. I also learned that if you are impatient water-color can be a challenge because you need to let each layer dry before you start the next layer. Wow that is difficult.
"Morning pages, blogging and multiple unsuccessful attempts to begin writing a memoir on “The year of the travel” are all casualties of this writer’s block infecting my psyche. Like a fast moving virus I feel writers block threatening to take over all creative aspects of my life."
Getting out of the environment you spend the majority of your time in will help you create new neuro pathways in your brain. It upsets your normal routine which is great for me because I tend to get set in my ways and switching things up helps me think differently.
"Creating a vision board is one of the best things you can do to help achieve your goals and be intentional about what you are trying to do and create"
Each week set aside time on your calendar to experience art. This can be many wildly different things.
