How to Blossom in Your Creativity

It’s True Confessions time….

I call myself The Adventurous Writer, but the truth is I’d rather be The Adventurous Artist.

I’ve always had a secret dream of being an artist in New York City. I wanted to live in a huge airy loft filled with easels, oil paints, splattered rags, and paintings all over the room. I wanted to create vivid, rich, vibrant oil paintings of lush flowers and Parisian street scenes.

Now, the time has come to unveil and explore my dream of being an artist.

My husband gave me oil paints, brushes, and two canvases last Christmas. On my birthday in March, we went to Squamish, BC and found an easel in a thrift store. I borrowed a few books on how to paint from the library…and voila!

The artist in me is waking up.

Somebody asked me if I took classes before I started painting. Nope! I just opened up a tube of paint and squeezed far too much on my palette. (I left my palette on the floor, and my dog fell asleep in a blob of green paint. Now we have splotches of green in various parts of the house.)

The road to creativity is messy and exciting! And it takes time. But it’s worth it.

Do you have a secret dream? Take baby steps towards it. Buy a book. Get your instruments, tools, supplies. Start dabbling. Don’t worry about taking classes or getting lessons – that can come later.

Examples of different kinds of creativity
