Trust the Magic of Beginnings

I got stuck! You know how that is? Well I am sorting it out. It’s not that I am in yet ANOTHER life transition or am I? All I know is that I have one foot in the planning, organizing, administrative, execution side of life and another in the creative, playful, boundary less side.

What happens when I go back and forth is, I just get stuck…. mostly on the creative side.

I thought that cleaning up my studio and reorganizing it would help free the clutter from my creative side. Well that didn’t work. Then I thought, I needed to get back to daily wistful art journaling using some word prompts. Well, that didn’t work. After a period of blaming my supplies (paper, brushes, paints), I decided to beat myself up for not having any imagination or technique. Well, that thinking certainly does not break you free.

So today, I decided I needed a goal – to create abstracts. While in search of an abstract image, I moved onto recreating a whimsical image from a few years ago. The going was rough, the paper is indeed horrible and my watercolor technique can sure use refinement.

All that said, I am willing to put myself out there and share the image…. mostly because I had a quote that seems to work with this image and THAT is what I really want to share with you today.

Trust the Magic of Beginnings

After a diverse career in Corporate America, I am freeing myself of a ton of ego traps; chief among them is "perfectionism." Watercolor, when left to its own devices and imperfections seems to create something more beautiful than intended. I am still a student and love the learning journey. Sharing that with friends and family in the form of greeting cards, has been a surprise filled with joy.
