Faith.Let the power of a word uplift you! Liam did for me!
My five-year-old grandson sparked a surge of creativity for me as we played a silly game of reindeer antlers (balloons stuffed inside pantyhose and planted on your head!).By the end of the fun-fill day the rubbery balloons had deflated inside the stretchy nylon. When I pulled the textures apart it reminded me of my collage days. Later, in my studio, I began layering paint, papers, shapes and patterns.
Thinking of Liam's tenacity to wear balloons that stretched longer than his four-foot height on his head, "bend" was the first word that sparked my creative streak.Soon windswept leaves flew onto my canvas among contrasting strong, vertical birch trees.
"Strength" became my next word. What inspires you?
