As part of my therapy to find my way back to writing, I've recently been exploring other artistic avenues. This is great news, as it means I've not only got creative energy back in stock, but I'm finding ways of expressing it. Currently, my explorations have spanned a variety of mediums in which I have zero mastery, but it has been a greatly satisfying experience nonetheless. I can feel these studies in art buoying my writing muse. Someday, I believe one outlet will feed the other.
I thought I'd share a few of my creative outbursts. The closest I've come to writing something new is the poem above. I woke up with the poem and painting in my head, and I couldn't shake it until I got it on paper.
|Trees done in watered down acrylic|
|Mother Earth in flight, dry erase marker on whiteboard|
|"Lonely Tree" , a pencil sketch|
|A fairy hideaway-done in micro gel pen on a Post-It!|
As the creative side of my brain begins awakening from its long, cold slumber, my excitement builds. I know there's so much more inside of me, and I feel I'm in a good place to discover where it's all hidden. Thanks for listening.
