My last few Posts may give you a clue where I am presently finding inspiration: lantern light, Midsummer’s Eve, something magical in the air….and I am working out painting ideas with sketches and drawings. Before I actually begin painting, I want six to eight drawings worked out and then when I do begin painting I can let my mind become absorbed in the world of colors and mood and light and shadows.
My artistic life has been a zig-zag trail with one of my muses beckoning me to follow down her path for a while before another muse takes her place. Sometimes, I wish I could stay on a straight path…
BUT, one thing I have learned over the past multi-decades is NOT TO QUESTION my creative process.
Here’s an image for inspiration that is one of my favorite. I own this image as a greeting card. By Edward Robert Hughes, may I present Midsummer Eve:
A nd a quote:
“Fancies are like shadows…you can’t cage them,
they’re such wayward, dancing things.”
~L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Avonlea
My muse is helping me to dance and I want to dance!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Find joy today. LR
