For the past few weeks I have been working with polymer clay, paper, decopauge,and other various mediums. During this time my oldest son who is visiting for the summer asked me why I was'nt painting. He is constantly after me to paint. He says "mom, you enjoy it, you are good at it, that is what you should do". I just kinda sorta ignored him and continued on doing everything but paint. I felt like I was in a slump.
After a few weeks of this I said "why am I not feeling creative?" my son said "because you need to get back to your painting" Then, the other day I saw a wooden sled sitting there and I thought.."HMMM I should paint something on that". I saw a picture of a cardinal so.. I got out my paint supplies,and set everything out and began to paint! I was in my own world for 2 days! I was happy! I realized my son is right, painting is what I enjoy. I am feeling creative again. Now I am looking at other things I can paint!!!! I saw a rock this morning, picked it up and said "Now that looks like a turtle!"
