I have returned to writing in the past few weeks, and I have tons of poems to post as we start 2019. My painting has been full of experimenting.
To jumpstart my creativity, part of what I am using to keep myself inspired is the planner I wrote about before that was custom designed for me. Seeing everything written out that I should do each day, from reading to writing to learning, helps give me that accountability. I write for the love of it and because I have images in my head that just must come out. But the reality is I frequently don’t feel good and doing anything can be difficult. This week in particular has been hard. But I am creating.
I have used the times Angelica has been getting tutoring to read, write, and blog. She gets tutoring for an hour at a time and rather than just sit there, I get stuff done. The new environment is actually stimulating.
I may start doing digital poetry, in this case meaning poetry on images, and I definitely want to start using dyed and cut up words in my paintings.
Collages are in the cards. I also want to do still life photography around the house with journals, art supplies, salt, flowers, bibles, etc.
I have a few little plans in the works and I am looking for more. I want to be as creative as possible this winter
