I had this "great" idea. LOL Take a day of the week... every week to create a piece somewhat outside your comfort zone. Take time to choose some items to use that are picked by intuition only. Then, create something with it.
I found three scraps of fabric on the floor that were picked out of a basket by Ethan. (Well, that he randomly grabbed from the basket and threw on the floor:)) I used these pieces to create this piece, "Lonely Bird" #2. I can't tell you how good it felt to create this little piece. I can't wait to do some more pieces similar to these and the "wheels are turning". I really don't know if the work would appeal to anyone but me, but I absolutely felt something in my spirit that was so satisfying and a feeling of contentment came over me when I was in the last stages of completion. I Just had one of those moments when I felt like all the sketching and experimenting I have been doing for the last few years finally (well almost) came together. I wrote in an earlier post (probably more than one) that I haven't been able to get my "vision" from my head to my hands. I think that I figured out the problem. I wasn't letting my "heart" do it's part. I wasn't "letting go" and was more worried about whether or not it would have appeal to a "buying audience". So I think I will try to make "intuitive Tuesday" a regular event. Any one else want to join?:)
