There is glory in smallness.
I am learning this as I explore what creative practice means to me .
It is so easy to get wrapped up in what everyone else is doing but true freedom comes in learning and honoring whatever works for me…in this season of life.
I am learning|
How to leave space.
To start again.
To go small.
To let things be.
That it doesn’t have to be a great work of art 🖼 or praised by others to be worthy.
It is enough to create.
I downloaded the hipstamatic app again. Gah. It’s so fun. & My kiddos love taking pictures with it because of the filters.
Today I was playing around with it and doing and exercise from “get unstuck” by Danielle krysa (the jealous creator). The toddler played happily in the couch and chalkboard (🥴🤗).
I remember how I use to take pictures of random things for a photo challenge on Instagram. There was something magical about showing up with my camera and seeing what I can find related to a topic.
I don’t know how or why that simple act became almost impossible as the years swung by…
So here I am again. Responding to a simple prompt. Looking around at the things of my life and making art….that really feels like a ginormous gift.
