Inspiration Today, Studio Happenings and Work in Progress: 158

Revisiting the Art's Way, spending time on walks
and looking to nature to find inspiration

Here's what I am finding inspiring today -
  1. This Quote - “If I could say it in words there would be no reason to paint.” Edward Hopper
  2.  Ways to get unstuck in creativity from a newsletter from my wonderful and creative friend Kat Sloma over at Kateyestudio.com 
    Here are four ways to jump start your creativity, suggested by my readers:
    1. Change mediums. There is nothing like dabbling with a different set of tools to open up a creative channel, is there?
    2. Go for a walk. Getting outside and moving helps you see things in a whole new way. Good for your body, mind and creative soul!
    3. Do something completely different. Go off and cook, work on a house project, and let your mind wander. The ideas inevitably come when we aren't wanting them.
    4. Journal. Morning pages are part of The Artist's Way for a reason, helping us to get all of those limiting thoughts out of our head and onto the page. 
    But most of all, they suggested, take the pressure off and let things be. Creative dips often come before a big step forward or a new project coming your way. Be patient, they told me.
  3.  The brilliant and inspiring words of Julia Cameron every day with this book


  1. Oh my goodness, Marji! What a surprize (and honor!!!) to come here for inspiration and stumbling upon my name in your list! I love that Edward Hopper quote. Exactly. Thanks for sharing Kat's list. I do need to get back into morning journaling...

    1. Oh, and btw, that picture is amazing... composition and light... excellent!
