Most artists would attest that inspiration comes in waves just like the rest of the world follows natural cycles. But no matter what your passion, every once in a while we are imbued with a tidal wave of inspiration; it's this kind of energy that allows us to do something beyond the normal accomplishments of our day to day lives. Do you ever look back at something you've accopmlished and think, "How on earth did I do that? What possessed me?"
I have written about inspiration before and its various sources, but lately I have been in awe of its power. The vision that might creep slowly in or hit me with a bang almost always has to be fulfilled. It may happen right away or it may take years but, whatever the task, it will be.
Since the start of the year I have been focused on creating Sarafina Fiber Art. I have been working on a steady stream of energy flowing like a rapid river toward the sea. I am nearing the delta! Still a vast amount to be done but the pace has slowed and I can take the time to look around, take it all in, and choose my direction.
I hope you will stay tuned. Visit the blog, try a felting kit, play the Critter a Day contest, check out my new website...
....and see where the inspiration goes next.
