Even when I’m working on painting siding for our house, I get inspired. I had to grab Hubbies pencil to sketch a concept & notes on a scrap of wood! You can see how I use up extra paint off the brush at the end of a session on my blog.

I love Nature so I suppose it is only natural that most of my ideas come from the things that surround me.
You can see my creative side displayed on my blog
and how nature palys a big part in it.


It’s still two months away but sign me up for the Sixth Annual Art Every Day Month.
Will post my creativity on my blog
Artistic everyday. This will be fun

I am working on a series of paintings that reflect places or streets I’ve lived on–here is my third piece:

“Burgess Street”

Hi Leah,

I surfed here from Magpie girl. I love your blog!! Full of creativity, imagination and fun. I just ordered from the library the book you talked about. The widening stream : the seven stages of creativity by David Ulrich. I look forward to read it. I will be coming back here often. Take care.

What a fascinating place you’ve got here!
I also try to live a creative life, in many ways.
I’m sure I’ll be a regular visitor to your site.

Always so much creative work! Love the sharing!

My creativity for this week is performing in a play! Check out the photos!

Still working on my Sacred Art project – 85 days to go! The fall weather inspired me to start a knitting project, still working on little girl faces, and have started an art journaling project I hope to blog about more this week. You can check out the unfolding story at!

I did a 15 min drawing. I can never seem to find any time for myself these days. But not making art drives me crazy! I’m thinking of doing this 15 min spontaneous art/play more often.

It was really fun to get lost in my sketching while listening to a recording. I didn’t have any expectations for the piece. I was just keeping busy with my hands. It was surprising to see how well the ‘no pressure’ approach worked.


This week I gave a presentation at a conference in Glasgow (and so was away from my current homebase in Paris). The presentation turned out to be more “creative” than academic, which I was very happy about. I got several very positive comments about the style and content of my paper, so it turned out successfully. I also was able to take some incredible pictures and write on my blog ( several times about the beauties of Scotland, specifically Oban where I spent one night. This coming week I plan to return to my inspriation board and my new play.
