October 2018…I had finally arrived home after another long work road trip. Why was I so tired? It hit me, I hadn’t been using my creative gifts. For 8 months, I had not played music, built anything with my hands, or exercised my creativity muscles.
The next day I grabbed a pad of paper, paper our kids paint with from the craft closest, and I filled up the dining room table with 10 paintings of peppers. Relief..at last!
It’s then I set a goal to paint a pepper a day for 365 days and this is what happened….
So what did I learn?
- Anyone can and should create! I have no formal art training, you can do it as well.
- Constraints force creativity. Knowing that everyday I would paint a pepper allowed me freedom to try lots of different styles.
- One new thing, 5-10 minutes a day, will change you.
