SelfLove365, Year 2, Day 350: Inspiring

IMG_4548

When I see others creating, no matter what their creation consists of, and particularly those people who are creating their lives to be exactly what they want them to be, then I am fully inspired.

Inspiration is an in-breath, a drawing in of substance and life. I am not actively creating art right now, and I’ve been somewhat down about that recently. But I know that by seeking out those who inspire me (and choosing to refrain from my comparison stories in which I am no longer enough), I am filling myself up with beauty, which eventually leads to my own desire to create.

After the inspiration comes the out-breath, the creation.

SelfLove365, Year 2, Day 192: Inspired:Inspiring

The ability to be inspired, and in turn, inspiring, is a cycle that works its magic so well in the presence of community. My idea to create pussy paintings developed after viewing pussy paintings by other artists over the past few years. The theme sank into my sub-conscious, and when it was ready to be looked at and explored, it exploded into my awareness. And then, after making several pussy paintings myself, I noticed pussies popping up in others’ work, and even had a friend tell me that I inspired her in this way. This thread of connection thrills me.

I don’t seek to be inspired or inspiring, but when either happens, I sense more meaning and oneness with the world.
