There is a sense of purity with a blank white canvas in front of us. Many artists There is a sense of purity with a blank white canvas in front of us. Many artists tell me, a blank white canvas is intimidating and there are days they walk past that blank slate afraid to start. I look at the blank canvas in a totally different way; chances to over and over again create a piece of my soul.
I hope this blog will motivate you to push past what might be blocking your creativity and put your brush to the canvas.
As an artist, a routine is almost nonexistent for me. But, before each piece of art, comes a process that I want to share with you.
Here is my secret.
Each day, BEFORE I ever start a new piece of art, I warm up to loosen ANY creative block that might be lurking. I begin by opening my artist journal and start painting whatever I feel the mood taking me. It allows me to create without anything stopping me as this journal is MY place to play without fear of anyone seeing this art. If I paint without any bias crying out in my inner soul, I find I create without any voice telling me NO, that is the wrong color, don’t add that line, I just create. It allows me to begin my painting free of any distraction and totally full of creativity freedom. This is the key, the freedom to create starts.
In other words, I begin my day with a blank white canvas.
I may paint flowers in my journal or draw lines with my left hand but what happens is I totally free my mind and open my creative soul to artistic possibilities. I rid my mind and my artist brush of any negative vibs or issues that we all tend to harbor.
I painted this little art to remind me to start my day with a blank canvas that is without doubt, fear, or negatives voices. This white canvas encourages me that my brush strokes are from within my soul.
We are all unique artists with our own styles. Try starting your day or your creative process with some “creative free time.”
