It Is Why You Create That Matters

Opening my eyes to a new way to look at my creative vision.
There is a quote, saying, what have you, that says

     "People don't buy what you do, they buy why you do it." 

These last couple of years, I have not had a cohesive vision for why I create my art.  There is this random need to turn small pieces into something new and different, but the fleeting inspiration is unfulfilling.  With munchkins underfoot who are also randomly creative beings, my creativity lacks discipline and study.  This is not going to change for the time being.  My munchkins are still young, and though they require less hands on attention than they did when they were toddlers, they are still drawing from my reserves. 

What I can do is accept the patterns of my art.  I can accept that my world is themed around nature.  I can accept the branches, flowers, seed pods, and rocks that are the keystone to my creative ability. 

Keep an eye out for more posts in the coming weeks, more shows in the coming months, more jewelry and other such creative fruits this year.
