Creative Pursuits

After 3 long months I finally pulled out my art supplies and began creating. I almost didn’t. In fact I tweeted the following….

First thing I’m doing after the move is pulling out my art supplies & creating. I miss that. #art #create #happiness

But then I realized that my heart literally NEEDED to create. I missed the feel of painting. I missed the calm that always comes over me when I lose myself in my art. It’s a different kind of peace from when I’m writing. I just wanted to submerge myself in the nonverbal aspect of art. I wanted to get in touch with my creative soul without thoughts or words. I hope that makes sense. I can’t describe it any other way.

You see, for those of you that don’t know my husband and I are in the midst of moving. This first move is a transition that will last a few months. Then come September we are heading out west to Vancouver, BC. Relocating to the city (and to a greater extent, Province) that has captured our hearts. The move has been in the works for quite some time and finally it’s becoming a reality. Perhaps one day I’ll write more about it 😉

In any case, this post is to share some pictures of my newest piece. It’s not finished yet but I hope you enjoy.

Also I’d like to give out a piece of advice. Never let life get in the way of your creative pursuits. Creating (in whatever form you choose) is pure happiness for the soul. Don’t wait like I did. Go and enjoy RIGHT NOW!

  1. “Never let life get in the way of your creative pursuits.” I couldn’t agree more. So exciting that you’re moving to Vancouver!! I’ve never been there but I hear it is stunning and a really cool artistic city. I want to visit! LOL Glad you pulled out your art supplies and got some creative time in this week. 🙂
