I’m not always in the creative mood. Sometimes it takes pushing myself and sometimes it just takes three key ingredients!
Just the other night, I felt so tired, had a stomach ache and just wanted to veg on the couch. That wasn’t an option, as I had a student coming in less than an hour. So, I made an herbal tea, which one of my students gave me (thanks Deb) went down to my studio, put on a classical cd and began the process. Squirt out the primary’s, pick up my palette knife and before I knew it, I was relaxed and getting into the groove. Once my student arrived, I was enthusiastic and eager to teach.
Tea, music and paint. That works for me!
