Grateful

My favorite moment of the day is early in the morning when everything is still quiet.

I’m a morning person, when waking up I’m ready to start my day. Every day is a gift to me. As to creativity, I’m nicely productive around 6 and 8 am. I need quietness and stillness. Looking out of the window, staring into nothingness and over-thinking a lot I need this morning musing for filtering and processing my inspiration and thoughts. So I try to connect what moves me, that can be anything but what comes intuitively is mostly botanicals or birds. I start painting with watercolors or drawing with a nib pen and black ink. Both watercolors and the nib pen are uncontrollable, unforgivable and unpredictable, and that’s what I love. The incompleteness and sometimes wobbly, uneven lines is what makes it creative and interesting for me. 

I don’t have a plan, no deepening in detail, just expressions and feelings translated into shapes and colors. Finding beauty in the unexpected. I don’t need a perfect painting, it’s just my perception and observation which results in a painting that represent the way I see and feel the life all around me. 

Meanwhile I’ll have my coffee in a big happy red-colored mug. It’s all part of the senses right?
