My Place to Create
Karen at My Desert Cottage is hosting a party today!!! The theme is Where Women Create! I visited Karen's blog this morning. OH MY!!! Her studio is a dream! It's a work of art! I am a guest at Karen's party. So, I agreed to post a photo of my creative space. Well, the place where I go to hold court with the muse is very humble. My art work is always created on my screened back porch at this tiny table. Now, the art supplies are stored (using that word loosely) in a hutch in my home office. But, this spot is where I look over the yard, the pool, the decks, and nature. From the sky, the water, the flora, and the fauna the muse appears. I love all of God's creation. Butterflies and flowers are two of my favorite inspirations. Now that Autumn is slowly approaching, frisky squirrels and amber leaves will probably be appearing on my ATC's. The other pic is of a side deck that is usually filled with flowers in Spring. Right now the pygmy palms have the stage. When I need to take a break and mull over the right quote or embellishment to add, I step out to the glider and let my mind go free with uncensored ideas. Where do you go to create? It doesn't have to be a "studio" in the ordinary sense. It's any place that you feel at home with your pen, paper, art supplies, thrift finds, or inspiring reads.
