After reading Teri's inspirational post this morning I have been mulling over this New Year's beginning. Actually I have read so many art blogs today my head is verily reeling with inspiration. I want to thank all of you for sharing what seems to be second nature to you.
Teri guided us to Leah's web site called " Creative Every Day". This must have been the button I needed to push to get my creative juices flowing again since I have had this cold. This is just the kick start my creative year needed. Leah has urged us to choose a word that would be our inspiration for the year. The word I chose was VERVE.
I love this word. It seems to express the excitement I feel when I begin every creative project I attempt.
While this doodle I did this evening seems a bit busy, well, it reflects how my mind was working. All of the drawing is of some symbolism to me. This year I hope to glide through the river of change that each year brings. Not forgetting the excitement of fire works that I begin the year with. There is a creative fire that is burning in me that nature fuels.
I already feel so successful with finishing my first sketchbook. For those of you that have closets full of filled sketchbooks you must remember how you felt when you filled your first one. I feel so energized by you artists with your filled sketchbooks. Your generous encouragement is certainly felt here at Artsy Endeavors. I will be here this year experimenting, growing and feeding that verve that I so enjoy. Thank you for being with me on this journey. Welcome 2009.
