The last two weeks I’ve been having visions of a concept for a new painting I want to do when I get time this coming weekend. I haven't been able to paint much the past few months as I hadn't quite had the time and with the spare time that I did have, I had been filling it with reading. Not only had time been an issue, but I was also running low on supplies as I was out of canvas even though I still had some acrylic paints left. Ever since Christmas when I was gifted more paint, oil paints this time, and some new canvas I’ve noticed that my creative juices have been in over drive.
At least three or four times a day different concepts have been running through my mind with new creative ways to express what’s been on my mind and numerous ways to use mixed media to bring to life the many ideas that have been flowing through me from day to day. With all the positive things that have happened to me the last few weeks it seems like the foundation and mix of positive and creative energy has grown within me at a massive rate. I think it’s beautiful how creative energy can manifest itself in your life whether it be in your physical world or psychologically. It’s a powerful and sublime feeling when you can unleash that creativity and put it to work with your very own hands. I’m not quite sure how my next piece will turn out. What I do know is that whatever it is, with the feelings that I’ve been having, it should be in fact one of the best pieces of work that I’ve ever created.
Since I'm a perfectionist I'm quite sure that when I finish the actual project I may not feel that way as I’m one who always feels like there is more to be added and that a piece is never finished. But that doesn't take away from the feeling I get from creating while I’m immersed in the process. I may even keep a running picture journal via the blog so that you all can see how it’s coming along, who knows. If I do, feel free to let me know what you think. I’m certain you’ll probably see something in it that I don’t as that’s just how I operate, but it would be cool to see or hear about others interpretations of my work. As they say, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. And right now, everything is looking beautiful to me.
