I have tried many different media in which to express my creativity. I think the fact that I have an urge to do this is a given. Even when working with something like metal. I’m using this as an example, because it isn’t a medium that I have a natural feel for. But if you put the tools in metal in the same room as me, sooner or later I will gravitate in that direction and start making something.
I think buying a spinning wheel and learning how to use it has been an absolute catalyst in my life, and it has changed how I look at my life. Yes, that is quite a bold statement! Absolutely true though, because I now live according to my creativity. When I create yarns, or when I help to make a new spinner in my classes. I am living by what I love doing, and that is a blessed place to be.
Photo’s, rain and philosophy
Today has been a fascinating day, full of learning new skills, turning acquaintances into friends, talking, talking, whilst the rain’s drizzle couldn’t dampen spirits, or the dreams that will come true if there is enough support around. Yay for good people.
I’m also doing an online photography course at the moment, but it has not taken my full attention for one reason or another. So back to basics – looking at colour, contrast, proportions and texture. What is the story behind the picture – is it obvious? Well, this one has a lesson – 4 year olds don’t stand still for too long! I know it’s a bit blurry, but I love it.
