While I haven’t felt much like writing (my brain has felt very overwhelmed lately perhaps because of summer heat and sun), I wanted to share how I have been creative in ways other than writing.
After purchasing some frames that I originally wanted to develop photos for, necessity and impatience created creativity. Since my parents and I (and Selby) are at our lake cabin far away from stores and various conveniences (photo developing) and I wanted to hang up these new photo frames (that I brought from home), I ended up painting pictures to go in the frames. They were just going to be placeholders until photos were developed but now I like them!!
I don’t know if I will keep all these gradient watercolors I am filling the frames with. For now I really like them and I am proving to myself that I am becoming more confident with my artistic abilities and that certainly isn’t a bad thing (and hopefully spills over into my creative writing).
