A new direction? 01/15/2011
 
Picture
I took this a while ago, and had forgotten about it :P This was at a little local nursery that Zach and I went to this past summer :) It is such a cute place :)
I have been doing some "soul searching" lately. For some reason lately I have felt that I really needed to connect to who I am and what makes me "me".
Part of this started for my search of creativity. A while ago I asked myself how does my art express what I want it to express? I unfortunately wasn't able to come up with an answer for this.
Before I was "happy" with my creations. But now I am just playing and having fun; making photos that will hopefully make people laugh and bring a smile to their face . I feel that I am finally expressing my different thoughts :)
As Zach said the other day "why does it feel like everything is coming to life?"
It's because I feel that my creativity has come to life, and is taking on a new direction.
Before all of this I would have long long periods of artist block. Now I can barely keep up with the ideas for future photo shoots :)

We'll see where this goes! I am hopeful though :)

A new word of the week is up. This week is "Balance"  You can find it here at:  Word of the Week

Hey that's awesome, that your creativity is flowing freely, that you can barely keep up with your ideas for photo shoots. Don't you love it when that happens?? Whoohoo! Remember to write down those ideas in a journal or sketchbook. At least that's what my husband tells me to do...do I always do that....well... Anyway, I'm looking forward to seeing more of your artwork in the future.

Susanna,

It has been great to have the creativity practically bursting out of me :) I've never had that before, so it has been pretty amazing :) I have the cutest little sketchbook that I doodle all of my ideas in whenever I can, except for when I'm driving ;)
