As part of the 7 Day Creativity Challenge (go check that out here), I set my creative intention for the remainder of 2014. Granted, 2014 is winding down rather quickly, but there's always time for creativity in my book.
According to the challenge: a creative intention is a one word theme which will guide you through 2014 in your creative work.
My one word theme is: INSPIRATION.
I want to draw inspiration from the world around me. I want to always be thinking and brainstorming and writing. I want to find inspiration in places that I wouldn't normally look. I want to be surprised by life. I want to be inspired by others. And if I can somehow inspire someone else to start their creative journey, then that's pretty awesome, too.
I bought some new paint, a few canvases, and new paintbrushes, so today, I am just going to let my mind wander and see what kind of artistic creation I can produce. The end result may never hang in a famous art museum, but that's totally OK with me. I'm more interested in the creative process and seeing what happens.
