WIP #2 - Easter Nest in Pastry Cup
How often do we really cherish our time creating? How often do we put it above all of the little demands we face in life, as if to say, "Yes, this is important to me. It makes a difference in my life"? My creativity often takes a backseat to other responsibilities. I'm sure yours does too. This morning, I went in and got a cup of coffee, and rather than sit down at the computer, I went to the studio. I painted for an hour - uninterrupted. It was pure zen. Meditation.
The advances you see on the nest above are what I worked on. I listened to the world outside wake up. I watched the dawn spread across the sky while I worked on my little painting. I felt whole for those few minutes. I felt like I was living at the right speed, in the right place, doing the right thing. Precious. Such a joyous feeling.
I often envision my muse standing at the door of my studio, waiting to see if she will be invited in. This morning I beckoned to her and her joy at being invited illuminated the room and my soul. I hope that you will make the time to play with your muse today. That you will use all the colors in your paintbox. That you will take the time to savor the passing moments.
