This voice or gremlin (thank you Karen Walrond) is very loud and fills your mind, and head with so much doubt you begin to suffer from creative block. Writers refer to this as Writers Block, but I speak of creative block because as the title says I create! I create through words, photography and papercrafting! These are the things that bring me joy, but these are also the things that leave me feeling less than more often than not.
Kat Sloma recently wrote a post about the many hats she wears and how it is difficult to answer the question "What do you do?" with a single response. I too would be limiting myself and the things I love to do by simply stating "I am a Marketing Manager," in response to that question.
As I close out 2011 it is with the strong desire that I will learn to ignore the GREMLINS in my mind and continue to pursue and practice the things that I love to do.
Here's some of the work I have been creating of late:
|Taken for both the texture and the composition - I came across this fence during a recent Photo Walk.|
|Hairy Tree is what I call this photo, because I never recall seeing a tree with all of this hair or fur.|
