While I have been avoiding illustrations, a grandchild has been drawing away, at my art table. Now, this could have one of two responses by me:
1. I could berate myself for procrastinating and not being inspired, blame myself for not being finished and published by now.
2. I could see this as the inspirational boost I needed.
Taking the second option, I am back to doodling ideas. Since there aren’t any formulated pictures in mind there could be inspiration waiting to happen. Watching my grandchild drawing and enjoying the process was just the motivation I needed to get me started again.
My family of artists have been inspiring and create beautiful artwork. I use their same approach for myself. It is a choice. I like their inspiration.
