My husband and I got married just about 6 months ago. We went on our honeymoon to Niagara Falls and it is breathtaking. The falls are indescribable. It was probably the happiest time of my life.
When I got home I had trouble re-adjusting to regular life. Every day was so beautiful and perfect and normal life was so…..well….normal.
Then I took a creative course (The Creative Goddess eCourse by Leonie Dawson). I started creating art and removing my creative block. One of the projects (to paraphrase) was to think about time or place that evokes a feeling you want to feel and to create an artwork to evoke that feeling. Of course I decided to create a piece that reminded me of Niagara Falls.
I used paint and some lace and this is what I created:
Here is a closeup of the lace “mist”:
And a closeup of the lace cloud:
I love looking at this artwork as it takes me back to Niagara and the happiness and contentment I felt there. I have actually made another Niagara painting since then, which is larger.
When I created this piece, I didn’t actually think I could paint. I even felt a little weird hanging it in our house, like it wasn’t good enough.
I got over it, though, and now I love it. In fact, since taking The Creative Goddess eCourse, I have been painting up a storm. That’s something I never really thought I could do before.
If you could create any artwork to evoke a feeling you wanted to have every time you look at it, what would you create? (Better yet….create it! Post a link to a photo of it when you’re done!)
P.S. If you are interested in knocking out your creative blocks and start creating like you never thought you could, I very highly recommend The Creative Goddess eCourse. The next round starts in a few weeks; however, I really recommend that you sign up for the Goddess Circle Membership. You get instant access to all of Leonie’s wonderful programs!
