Studio play is such a joy for me because I can create with an end goal or specific Ifinish line. I literally just allow myself to play and experiment with whatever is on hand. I never know what is going to come of it. Some I love, some….not so much. Some I keep, some I do not. Some I completely paint over with gesso and start over, because I can. I allow myself that freedom, and it really provides a nourishing nest, so to speak, for the creative juices to swirl and gather.
One thing I’ve learned through this studio play time is that if you show up, with your brushes up, the creative gods will rain down upon you and shower you with lots of ideas, nudges, and whispers….but you gotta be ready to receive.
In this recent session, I created these 5 piece, using new colors, trying new things. I don’t loooooove all of them, but I love the time I spent making them. So, here’s to more and more studio play time….where I will show up….with brushes up… and await for creativity to rain down upon me.
