Today I have been creating like it is my life--and, luckily, it is. Even so, sometimes it takes great effort to make it a priority.
Today there will be no cracked windshields to repair. No photo shoots. No extraneous phone calls. No whining dogs. No house cleaning.
Instead I am spending the day in my sun-filled studio. I am surrounded by dogs. That is, half-finished paintings of dogs. Have I mentioned yet how much I LOVE my new studio space?
I have only one word to describe it and it is: HEAVEN. I've been listening to music, taking short breaks to love up my wolfie (who always accompanies me), drinking coffee with cream and sugar, and moving from one painting to the next. Oh, sweet S-P-A-C-E! I am currently in the midsts of 5 portraits--three on one wall and two on the other. A portrait of a cat sits on an easel in the corner. I feel surrounded by love, by creativity, by powerfully positive energy.
I hope you will find some time in your day to do a little creating too.
These letters are part of an ongoing project: "WORD OF THE DAY :: living life one word at a time." Today's word is "CREATE." I am living this word from the inside out--and it feels good.
