For the summer I decided that I NEED some inspiration to get myself into the studio and creating. I put out a call to my friends for some inspiring words. The idea will be to grab a word, randomly, and then go create a quick and small work of art based on that word.
Here are the words I am choosing from so far:
- Suggested by Lisa: Moonglow, Pensive, Stretch, Wander
- Suggested by Judah: Invoke
- Suggested by Jen W: Saunter
- Suggested by Geraldine: extravagance
- Suggested by Old Halloween: Passage, Nowhereness, Blooming, Everlasting, Euphoric, Remorse
- I also grabbed a bunch of words off this site.
If you have a word to add to my word jar, please drop me a comment with your ideas and I will add them. If I pick YOUR word I will send you some art based on that word.
Today’s Word is “CYCLE” (from the inspiring words site)
This is a great word for me right now! For those that don’t know I am working my way to a 100 mile bike ride by the end of this summer. So far my longest ride has been 60 miles. If you want to read more about my fitness and cycling adventures, that is on my Sweat 365 blog here.
But CYCLE also has a number of other meanings too. Every summer is the beginning of a new cycle for me. The time of renewal and reflection as I decompress from the past school year and prepare for the new year. It is also a time in the growth cycle of my garden where things are starting to fruit and flower, with early crops being harvested and more planting for fall. I am also in a renewed cycle of health and weight-loss as I refocus on my food and fitness. I have extra time to explore with new recipes and foods.
Now with all these thoughts in my mind I will head up to my studio and look at fabrics and papers, colors and trims to see what I can create for this first word. Pictures soon!
