Getting Back To My Creative Side

 

It’s been a long time coming, but, I’m finally at a place where I am truly ready to express my creative side.  I miss the way I feel when I am in the moment taking pictures and exploring.  I’ve been going through a lot of old items in our move into our new house.  I forgot how creative I can be and how much I love it. Since I have a huge blank canvas of a wall, I decided that it would be a great place to show off some of the great work that I have done over the years. I truly miss showing my work, and immersing myself in my work.  I came across my art and design kit (it’s really a large tackle box) and I’m ready to create again.  I was never really good at the drawing.  But, design is something that I really excel at.  I love balance and symmetry, as well as an ecletic style.  I love to find ways for things to come together.  I also find that the non traditional photos are what I love best.  The photo above is one from a wedding I shot recently.  It is a happy accident, but, I couldn’t be more happy with it.  Also to the right are my art box, and my home photography exhibit wall.  There is a 5’x5′ area to the right that is empty that will be filled as soon as I print and hang more images.  I am loving the way my living room is coming together.  I am loving that I can exhibit my work even if it is not in a gallery.  I’m proud of each and every piece.

I have vowed over the next year to take photo road day trips and really get out there and create again.  Even if it is just landscapes and cityscapes, I am going to be fine with that.  I’m also going to start entering contests and trying to get my work exhibited again.  I would really love for this to happen.  I am not sure what happened but, my passion has been ignited again and, I need to do what I can to encourage this.

In my life lately, I have gone through a big phase of self realization.  I have too many people in my life who don’t put me as in the forefront as I put them.  I’m tired of being selfless to people who don’t share the same feelings for me.  Honestly, I have a lot of people who are only hanging around because I am so good to them. I am moving past bleeding myself dry with my selflessness and I am ridding myself of all the negative and brining in all the positive I can so that I can be truly happy.  I need this and my art needs this.
