Creativity

A little dab will do you.

These little pots of paints remind me of a couple of things.  First I haven't painted any little rocks for quite awhile. Even though my artistic streak is just a narrow ribbon that runs through me, it does bring me joy to do a bit of this n that.  Secondly, they also remind me of my ink cartridges for my printer; just a little bit of this color and a bit of that color mixed together gives me the whole palette for my pictures on my reports for clients. 
Life would be such a bore if it was all black and white.  The differences are worth celebrating and from time to time I need to remind myself of this. 

Also as a parting thought I don't always need to paint between the lines.

  1. I think all humans are wired to be creative (maybe not as professional artists) as a way to tap into joy. Hope you find time to engage your creative side today!

  2. "dab" Ages ago this word has found its way in to my vocabulary. I changes it in a Dutch verb called: "dabberen" to me it means to put some watercolor paint on a wet page so it can flow freely were ever it wants to go. A very relaxing way to play with paint without the need to create a "masterpiece"
    And remember: being creative is much broader than making art.

    1. I will have to try to remember 'dabberen' something different like pink elephants.

  3. Lovely gloopy paint there I do like the yellow! I agree that creativity, making art is part of being human. I think sometimes the popular idea of the artist as a 'genius in his garret' puts people off thinking they are/can be creative.
