“I paint myself because I am often alone and
I am the subject I know best.”
– Frida Kahlo
I have little time these days to steal away to my 'Play Room' and make messy experiments
or bold spontaneous creations with my hoards of supplies.
Many of my new art toys are still unopened and some old ones are drying up... these abandoned play things await my return.
I have a sense of my 'creative self' drying out and cracking like the paints in boxes on my shelves.
Deep within me there is an instinctive desire to paint, to write, to explore and draw. This innate longing has existed as long as I have known me.
To make images, marks and lines great or not so great, it doesn't matter as long as I can express my world and my feelings through a creative channel.
I recall a quote, from memory, revealing that 'Lack of time is really a lack of commitment'.
""Light Globe Moment""...... This really is true and to prove it I intend to commit to saving time for my needs and desires.
Each and every single day I will take time to listen to what my 'creative self' needs and I will
express myself through and with whatever materials are close at hand. I don't need elaborate, must- have arty stuff to make my mark...........Paper, pencil and my commitment is all I need.
