Ever have those days where you want to draw, but you're not really feeling all that inspired?
I either have a million and one ideas that are desperately trying to burst out of my head and I can't get them down on paper fast enough - or I have nothing.
Today was one of those days - the blank piece of paper was staring back at me mockingly (cheeky thing!) so I decided to just begin with a circle.......which evolved into a sunflower........which is now unrecognisable as I just kept adding detail and pattern.
I'm happy enough with the result and the side benefit is that whilst drawing this my inspiration switch flicked to the "on" position and I sketched out my next project in between filling in the black areas on the sunflower design. It is surprising how often this will happen. I'm a big believer in the more creative you are, the more creative you become - sometimes you just need to give yourself a push to just begin. Draw something......anything......then the ideas will follow.
This year we have had a population explosion of kookaburras - they're always here, but we are noticing so many of late. Kookaburras have a very unique call - you can hear it in this audio file - this is what I wake up to most mornings.
With quite a few visiting the garden, I've been able to get close enough to take photos.
A trio of young ones.
Have a good one!
