Inspiration is everywhere. I breathe it in with every breath, and exhale creative energy onto everything I touch.
I have been feeling very inspired lately, but today I am tired. So I just wanted to share a few images and show you how inspiration can be found in every part of life, even the dull and rusted parts.
Nature never ceases to amaze and fascinate me…
But nature is more than trees and green.
It is microbiology blown up in scale and made out of glass…
…and it is flying through space in 3D!
Then there is the opposite of nature: manmade. The complex patterns and shapes in an engine…
…or the cogs in an old ship!
There is also beauty when the manmade begins to break down, and we are reminded of time, which nature is already so accustomed to.
With our manmade creations we sometimes think we are invincible, and can forget about time. Yet time always shows up in many beautiful ways.
In the rust…
…and the holes…
…and the layers of paint.
In the wood that got battered by the waves…
…and the places where we scratched our names. There is beauty in it all!
Thank you for being here, following my creative journey! I really like the direction this blog is taking, and I hope you do too!!! I am enjoying using my blog as a diary; a place to reflect, and collect images and words in an incomplete way. As something to document my adventures in creativity.
In next week’s blog post I think I will share some of the results of all this inspiration, in the form of some handmade journals and mixed media work. You can already see some of this over on Instagram! I’m there most days with posts of my work, plus ‘stories’ where I show a few behind the scenes snaps and other fun stuff.
See you soon, keep loving and creating!
Peace and love
