Yesterday I was one of the featured artists on Seth Apter's blog. I have posted about him quite often here and have purchased some of his art for myself. He is one creative person, that's for sure. And such a supporter of so many artisits out there.
I enjoy the process of creating art but in this period of my life it seems that the ideas are flowing but the work is not. I babysit my granddaughter and by the end of the day...I am exhausted. Not much time left for art. But, I file away the ideas either in a sketch book or in my brain, and hope that one day I will have the time to really devote to what I would like to say. In the meantime, I do the best I can to post things (occasionally) to my blog. That seems to have fallen by the wayside lately too. With Bill having emergency surgery on his hip and my having to do so much of the stuff that needs to be done around here (although as I am typing this I hear the vacuum running in the living room...he is getting better really quickly) there just isn't much time left.
I guess what I am trying to say in this post is that sometimes our creativity takes a turn. I try to make every moment count creatively, even if I am not actually "producing" a piece. I try to live my life creatively. I take photos, I work in my yard, I sing to my granddaughter. These are all part of the creative process, just tweaked in a different direction. But they are all part of the process; part of the whole.
Create what you love and the rest will follow, right? It's ALL good!
