This week let us be inspired by the creative prompt Goddess. A female being of supernatural powers or attributes, believed in and worshiped by a people. A female being believed to be the source of life and being and worshiped as the principal deity in various religions. Something, such as fame or wealth, that is worshiped or idealized. Or a woman of great beauty or grace. (Inspire me Thursday)
These goddesses are standing watch in the sea of creativity! They are always around me and have been a theme in several things that I have done before...But this prompt was a great reminder to bring them to life once again....They remind me to follow my star...to wear a crown of creativity...to be a thoughtful and caring friend...to share my soul..and to honor the creative process!!!!!!! So they stand watch...strong..true..full of color..and stead fast!

The prompt for this weeks Inspire Me Thursday is BOLD! One of the things that I do with my creative art is to use lots of COLOR! I love the idea of putting colors together that you might not think would work and then when placed just gives the piece a very BOLD look! So when doing this piece I thought of how I wanted to present it to myself! Some of the BOLDNESS that I hold dear to me....USING COLOR...FLYING HIGH and DREAMING BIG...WALKING TO THE EDGE and SINGING AND HONORING MY CREATIVITY! These are the BOLD things that I do! There are the ying and the yangs...the ebbs and the flows but I try to hold on tightly to these BOLD statements to allow myself the freedom of expression with my art. Do I fear falling..failing...Of course...but BOLD is what helps me to continue on....Hope it does the same for you!

"To make a wish come true, whisper it to a butterfly. Upon, these wings it will be taken to heaven and granted, for they are the messengers of the great spirit."
...Native American Legend
I was inspired to honor some of the wishes that I have not only for myself but for others. Here are 7 of them that I lift to the heavens in bubbles that will be gently guided by the butterfly's wings...

This week’s creative prompt is Light. Mix some paint then go light on color. Or make something light in weight. Or write something that is light on details. Or illustrate who is the light of your life. As always, interpret this week’s topic as you wish.
I know that the sun is a common theme for light...BUT...I live in upstate NY where the winters are very long and gray...I try like crazy to keep my creative juices flowing, and I usually do pretty well...BUT when the sun comes..oh, when the rays of sun are abundant...I have so many ideas, so many creative ah-ha moments..so much to do. Now, because it is sunny out, I should be out enjoying it, but instead I stay in my studio most of the day, (I do allow breaks, and lunch!! LOL) and even if I am outside, I am looking at an art magazine, I have my sketch book close at hand, and I am dreaming of what I will be creating next! SO the sun,shines and I am in the light of creativity. So for this prompt...I HONOR the SUN!
