Two miniatures created yesterday while playing in the studio. Often when I am feeling 'stuck' creatively speaking, I remember this fantastic saying,
"So you see, imagination needs moodling - long, inefficient, happy idling, dawdling and puttering." ~ Brenda Ueland
This wonderful quote helps me to let go of expectations, or attachments to outcome...And I am able to create in this space of play. What better place to be than in this space of happy idling, dawdling and puttering....Yes I am aware that this might be seen as another way for me to procrastinate...As there are many to do projects, such as getting ready for the studio tour, two other commissions, trades etc...Or it could be seen as a way to encourage the creative flow...Since, without this permission for soulful play...getting to the things that need to be accomplished get stagnated. In fact it is through 'joy' that imagination is awakened, authentic moments are induced and emotional clarity can be discovered. So I encourage others to enjoy 'moodling' often ... it is lovely.
