Then On New Years Day.. I was sitting at my computer, obsessively perusing Pinterest as I am wont to do, When I felt that familiar Niggle, that tickle, that little oh oh oh oh!!
And now I have a stack of drawings on my table, and no idea what to do first!! I have chosen my palettes, I have chosen surfaces, and decided on scale.... Now all I have to do is decide where to start!!! sigh.
I love that rush of Ideas, That burst of creative adrenaline that seems to be the norm for me. It always works that way. I could be thumbing through a book, or a magazine,even those that are not art or painting related and a light comes on... then another and another... and then I work until, one at a time, the lights go out. Then the process begins again.
With the advent of Social Networking and sites like Pinterest Now I can collect digitally too!!!
From time to time it is not something tangible like a shape or a theme that sets the ball rolling, it is a colour itself that does it... for me the Colour "Tuscan Red" was the jumping off point for the piece to the right.. it just evolved from there.
Of course I am particularly fond of the European theme so my work tends to reflect that.
So my question for you, What is your creative process? What stirs your juices?, What gives you that Burst of Creative Adrenaline? Let us Know... it's always nice to know your not alone, on any journey...especially a creative one!!
Happy New Year!!
