I love how the early morning sun lights up one of my favourite spots to curl up in. I’m not usually an early riser but when I am the camera is always close by.
On these early mornings, I see from my big comfy chair, beautiful sunrises that say “come paint me.” (A few recent paintings hanging around in the background).
I’m not very self-disciplined and motivation is a fickle thing but the world around me is one of the things that motivates me to get up and paint. Heaven knows it’s not for financial gain!
For me, the “reward” from painting comes from connecting with others. I guess that’s mainly why I do what I do. It’s great to share and see what others are sharing/working on. So, a big thanks to everyone for all the likes, comments, and follows to date and for sharing your posts. There’s a ton of talent out there.
I’d also love to hear what motivates you! Post a comment below or tag a post, piece of artwork, or photograph with #periwinkleblur (so I can find you in a search) and let me know where your creative spark comes from.
Off to do my painting-a-day for… I think, day number 5. And it’s back to watercolours after my acrylic adventure on Sunday.
