I find myself stuck in my cold winter mood a lot lately... it seems that every January and February I fall into hibernation mode. Do any of you ever feel that way or is it just me? Ya know that feeling that you just lived through yet another year. The time you get kinda reflective on what you have accomplished and what lies ahead. This tends to be a time of self-doubt and a period of looking for my creativity again.
As much as I've struggled with getting my oomph back, my desire to create I have forged ahead and created a few things. Lately they have been pieces that were commissioned for another, but were solely inspired by my life...my kids. My feelings about them and my hopes and dreams for their lives. Sometimes life can be hard filled, with challenges like what's fair and not fair. The only thing we as parents can hope for is that our children believe in themselves and know how much they are loved and believed in by us.
So with February wrapping up I find myself noticing a little bit of inspiration here and there, a feeling of better things to come, and a desire to share a little bit of that with all of you! Here is just a peek of what has made it's way out of the cold, cold winter and onto a canvas! Hope you enjoy! All prints of the originals are available in my etsy shop www.etsy.com/shop/kristajbrock and other places around town!
I'd love to hear what makes your spark of creativity come alive again.
Hope this finds all of you thawing out and looking towards warmer, brighter days!
