Creativity RULES (click bottom link for few tips & stretch your happiness)
Most of us say we are not “creative” and if we’re comparing ourselves to someone like the Dutch artist above, it’s no wonder we don’t think we are (these painted Buddha faces are genuis, by the way). Though we may not be making a living off of art persay we are all making a living at one art form/form of art or another. It doesn’t matter if you’re in the financial field, a stay-at-home-parent or in advertising.
We each have something unique to give and though trite, it’s true. We just have to start believing it.
When we compare ourselves we’ll never feel creative. We can’t say we’re creative or even think it because it might mean failing and then looking bad. How would we measure up? And who do we think we are, anyway, to be creative, let alone buy a painters canvas?
But in reality, creativity is universal (I think that’s the very meaning of the word).
There’s unique creative ability for all 7 billion of us.
And actively participating in your happiness and that of your VIPs means getting in touch with more creativity. And it needn’t (truly ‘shouldn’t’) look like anyone else’s. That’s the point.
And don’t think about the rules! There are none.
You can sharpie, pencil, marker, glue, pin, decoupage whatever directly onto the canvas. Get everyone involved.
If you’re so inclined you can also start with two or three oil colors (if it’s an oil canvas) or two to three acrylic colors (if it’s an acrylic canvas). Oils take longer to dry (so you can keep coming back to change it if you don’t like what you’re seeing). Acrylics dry within thirty minutes (not a lot of room to change).
The canvas is just one idea…here’s to more, for both you and the fam damily:
