Sometimes, we just have to start at the Beginning!

Taking time away from my business has been good and bad. Not only did I need to change up things in our everyday life, but I needed to step aside for awhile to re-assess where I wanted to go, and what that all involves, in beginning again.

In keeping somewhat in the creative mode, I have been clearing more clutter in my studio. Those things that I have had for years and still havBeginnings1e not done anything with them and assessing if I ever will.  There is always a place to get more stuff!

While clearing, I have found some pieces that I had started and forgotten about. Some will never amount to anything, so I am glueing them into a sketchbook and making notes (trying to remember how they were made), etc.

This piece on the right, was going to be a fabric postcard and I remember having to wait days for the glossy accents to dry, so it was placed on a shelf and forgotten. Even with the threaded needle, I have no recollection as to what I was going to do next. It might have to percolate for a bit more – its now pinned to my design wall.

BeginningsThis piece on the left, is one I am going to take outside on the front porch this week and do some hand-stitching. Its been so long since I did some hand-stitching my hands will need to take it slow. The fabric was a paint/dye drop cloth or used to wipe up drips, and I used Derwent Inktense pencils to colour the crocus on, then machine stitched around it. I am thinking this might turn into a little framed piece.

Taking a step back is brave enough, but to start again is sometimes overwhelming. I like to go back to the Beginnings, whether that is just painting, drawing, quilting or glueing collage. With no intention on the outcome, but it gets those creative juices flowing again. I make sure to have a journal/notebook beside me to make notes of the things that pop into my head while I am just playing.

Beginnings are a reminder of where you once were and where you can go for ease of beginning again!

Do you need to go back to your Beginnings?

Where can you go to begin again?

Clearing house…..MixedMediaCanvases

I have been cleaning up my studio, and storing artwork inventory is taking up more space than I’d like.

I have the artwork on this website reduced dramatically and will be adding more next week of the bigger pieces.

Grab them while you can, because I will no longer be making artwork to SELL, only for my enjoyment and as gifts.

You can go THIS ARTWORK page.

Are you aware of the Inspiration Around You?

I speak to many people every year, about where I get my Inspiration. My reply is and always has been – the world around me.

I have lived on the Canadian Prairies, most of my life and the Prairies talk to me more than the Rockies or the Great Lakes of our country.FARMHillPOTTER

I grew up on a farm where we could walk 1/2 mile to a hill in our cattle pasture and see for miles. We could hear the birds loud & clear, the neighbours speeding past on the main road, the cattle talking to each other, the gophers (if my Dad allowed any to survive) and the wind kissing our face.

It was heaven up there and I imagined our ancestors (on our Metis side) using that same place as a lookout point or camping there on their way to somewhere else. If we ever had a cow lost, we could go on that hill and try to see where she was hiding.

I have created many artworks inspired by the Prairies.

The Canadian Prairies is my life and it inspires me everyday. From the cat tails in the sloughs, to the crumbling old barns, to the power lines stretched through the crops and

of course this:

Prairie LandscapeJuly2012

 

I do like old architecture, but I have to admit, it takes alot of thought and concentration to work with architecture. Whereas, the Prairie Landscape – the Inspiration Around Me, takes little effort and feels easy. 

If you are having a hard time being inspired, take your camera and sketchbook out to a hill around you.

Open YOUR EYES to the Inspiration Around YOU!!!
