Ουφ, create is a weird word!!! Supposingly you are talented, you are born that way, your hands work on their own, you have it in you whatever that is, painting, writing, crafting, you make art happen.
Your parents say that as a kid you used to sit quite in a corner and draw. Creating came naturally. And then adulthood happened. And now creation may be liberating, relaxing, expressing but can also be frightening and unsure. What if my hands don’t remember how to work on their own anymore? What if people won’t like what i ‘ve made? What if i can’t think of anything to write? Mr Robinson explains all my thoughts beautifully in this TED talk, a video you should watch.
I know, too much talking for a theme like this and no action…….
Presenting (gagaaaan gagaaaaan!) my creative mess!
And since this post is about creativity, i have an announcement to make. Dear Liza, please stop pushing me into creation. You are making my life tough! 😛
==> Meet Wilber’s entry for the challenge, Create your own aquarium.
They’re all wonderful but my favorite is the tree! 🙂
Thank you Madelaine! I like the idea of a cat flying! 😛
Ιωάννα, πανέμορφη δουλειά! Συγχαρητήρια! 🙂
Ευχαριστώ Γιάννη! Μόλις είδα στην ειδοποίηση στο mail μου ελληνικά σοκαρίστηκα (από χαρά πάντα)!!! 😛 Παντού είσαι Γιάννηηηηη! 😀
Beautiful work 🙂 . Are those your painting ??
Thank you Lia! Yes, they are mine, doing my best! (whenever i feel like it 😛 )
the black cat reminds me of ‘cat woman’. So sexy 😀
She is bendy! hahahah!
Awesome! i love the cat with the mouse is really funny 🙂
Thanks Wilber! 🙂 Looking at it through the screen the cat reminds me of a high heel shoe, doesn’t it?
you are right and the head is the ornament of the shoe 🙂 lol
by the way, I must congratulate you for such wonderful paintings… keep it up!
Thank you sooo much! I just realized that the picture in your blog is a painting on the wall!!! :-O I ‘ll have to pin that back!
Yes, I did the painting on the wall, as well as others that I have posted on my blog … I invite you to discover the adventures of La Mandraka, maybe a drawing made by me will inspire you to create something new, which I would like to see 😉
I am officialy following you! 🙂 So i ‘ll be discovering La Mandraka! 😉
I have to say, WordPress gave me a hard time placing each picture next to the other!!!! Frustrating!!!
yes, it is something complicated but in the end you made it! Thanks for following me, I had begun to do it before, luck with your paintings and your writing
I like the cows on the wall 🙂
Thank you! I think they are my favourite too!
If you created all of those wonderfully colorful artwork on your wall, you are trult talented. Good for you! 🙂
Thank you so much Elizabeth, you made me smile! 🙂

No problem – my mother was a polymer artist…she loved it 🙂

You are very creative @Ionna, wonderful creations 😀
Thank you! I really like your card too!
I remember this TED talk; one of the best 30-minutes of my life. I posted it to my Facebook community page months ago. Thanks to you, I’m going to do it again right now!
I am glad i reminded it to you, i greatly enjoyed it too! It’s sadly true how school and even worst, university, kills our creativity…
You’re so creative!! Beautiful photos 🙂
Thank you nymph! You should know better, i saw your sketches, very beautiful! 🙂
These are beautiful creations! I know what you mean about being afraid that our talents are not good enough. Childhood was so much easier! 🙂
Thank you Angelia, love your blog too! I guess creation comes along with some insecurity when you grow up, but the freedom it offers you is totally rewarding! 🙂
Love all the cat related things of course 🙂
😛 I am a helpless cat lover……….!
Love your creation. Every Art piece gives a bright, happy, child-like enthusiasm that draws me into the subject. It lights up the space that it’s in. You are passionate in what you but best of all, you enjoy what you create and that shows…thanks.
Thank you so much for the beautiful words! It really means a lot to me that you took the time to write me what you think of my paintings. This is the way i express myself when i am happy, angry, depressed. It’s who i am. Taking positive feedback (out of nowhere) on that makes me so happy. Thank you. 🙂
What lovely creations! I love the tree with the hearts and the flying cat. 🙂
My cousin used to collect cow stuff. I bet she’d love these! Very nice – especially the cows and those cute jars.
Beautiful! Love the tree 🙂
Sony Fugaban, adinparadise, LubbyGirl, Zen and Genki, thank you all so much! I have a thing for cats, and lately for cows! 😛

Thank you DD! Glad you like them! 😀
You are extremely talented, keep up the good work! 😀
You are making me blush… thank you!
And thanks for dropping by, giving me a chance to see your blog in detail! 🙂
I’m glad I could make you blush 😉
As I was reading your post it was like I was written about me. I used to be able to draw, quite well and effortlessly, but then life got in the way and I did little drawing. As the urge to let all that creativity come out got too overwhelming, imagine my surprise when I found drawing is a use-it-or-lose-it talent. At least it was for me. Try as I might it no longer came effortlessly and I gave up in frustration. (Though I know I could do it before, so I will again). Thank goodness discovered photography four years ago. All that creativity NEEDED a place to go! 😀
I know exactly what you mean Jeff. But as you found out, creativity sometimes evolves in us. So if trying to draw gets frustrating then you should find what is liberating for you, photography! And it is obviously what you were meant to put your talent to! Many people draw or take pictures, but when the result is not only beautiful but special, then you know you are the right man for the right thing. 🙂
I am happy for you!
Thank you, you are too kind.
Love you art. Thank you for visiting my blog. Hope you stop by again.
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
Thank you! I ‘ll be seeing you around! 🙂
I relate with this post its always frightening and unsure for me. I try hard to draw but result is not satisfying and it frustrates me.
Maybe results are not satisfying only to you. Usually we are strict judges of your work. I guess the key is to relax, play with it and enjoy it! 😀
You are write for I can see the flaws, I’ll take your advice, thanks.
love love love that heart kitty tree! Gorgeous!
Thanks Anne! 🙂
