Reawakening My Creativity

February 24, 2011

Left brain: I am the left brain. I am a scientist. A mathematician. I love the familiar. I categorize. I am accurate. Linear. Analytical. Strategic. I am practical. Always in control. A master of words and language. Realistic. I calculate equations and play with numbers. I am order. I am logic. I know exactly who I am.

Right brain: I am the right brain. I am creativity. A free spirit. I am passion. Yearning. Sensuality. I am the sound of roaring laughter. I am taste. The feeling of sand beneath bare feat. I am movement. Vivid colors. I am the urge to paint on an empty canvas. I am boundless imagination. Art. Poetry. I sense. I feel. I am everything I wanted to be.

My dad is an artist and I did art in school.  Im not the kind of person who can draw or paint things from my head, I have to look at something and draw it.  But I have a deep appreciation for art of all forms, I myself falling into the Performance Art category.  However, sometimes, I do wish I had a big canvas and some paints, sometimes, Im just inspired to paint something, whatever comes to mind.

So, today, I popped down to the £1 shop and picked up some supplies…

I felt like I was shopping for the new year at school again!  It was exciting!

I definitely think it is important to keep the fire of creativity burning through the years, whatever medium you choose, its important to indulge it on a regular base.

Its been so long since I drew or coloured anything, so I started with my favourite coloured pens and a pattern book.  Like a pre-schooler, I sat on my bedroom floors, legs out straight, tongue sticking out and coloured…

Right now, these are my favourite coloures, purple, orange, blue and yellow.  I love them in interiors and on the runway…

Who knows, maybe soon I will be able to showcase some cool art!
