This evening, I thought I would sit & see if I could tap into a part of myself that I’ve been ignoring – my creative intuition. I’ve been struggling over the past couple of months with ways for me to tap into a part of myself that I know is there. Listening to the news, whether it’s bad or good – hasn’t been good for my creativity. So, over the past couple of weeks I’ve created a favorite spot to sit & just be quiet on the deck/balcony that’s off my office. Of course the weather earlier this summer was perfect for doing just that.
So, sitting there this evening I found myself listening to the crickets, the frogs & my favorite Brazilian music – quiet & asked myself what is my inner wisdom, my creative intuition & who is it? The sounds seem to blend into one another until I saw & felt something stir in me… it was a ping, small – but something that I think we can call a spark…. This spark, is going to have to grow larger & I’m going to need to listen & feel harder, or maybe I should put it – more deeply….. This spark is something that I can tap into to put into my photography and my client’s projects. If that spark is there when I create the pieces, I know that people will feel it & will be moved by them. If they are moved, they are drawn into action….. if that’s the case, I know I’ve done my job well.
I think what I just described is part of the creative process – tapping into the freedom & unknown to draw a viewer into the piece, the message and into action.
Over the next couple of posts, I’m going to start to showcase some of our portfolio work, describing how we came up with the designs, what they mean to us & how the client/designer interaction works. I hope you’ll check back often & leave comments.
