Rediscovering Joy

I am on a bit of a journey at the moment.  Part of that journey is remembering what brings me joy.  I love creating artworks but seemed to have lost my free creative spark.  So I signed up for a one-off mixed media class.  The beauty of doing this was that I could get creative but I wouldn't have to think too much - perfect!  
This was the end result:

Not only was I happy with it, but I couldn't stop smiling throughout the whole course - something I haven't done for a long time.  I felt so peaceful and relaxed - my creative mojo, and my heart - maybe even my spirit - is slowly being restored!  I can't wait to do some more.  The key for me to know when is to stop when I'm trying to make it perfect.

Added later on in the day: Oh I do have to add that the woman is a print I have used and made into an artwork - I did not sketch this and I'm sorry but I don't know who to credit it to.

Watch this space for a giveaway of one of my creations - coming soon!

    Wow!!! This is beautiful!! I am so, so impressed!! You are gifted. I always loved drawing as a kid and young adult, but I never make time for it anymore. I'm not as good as you, for sure, but I get how having that creative time can be so filling for the heart. I'm so glad you were able to take that time for yourself and your art.

    ...I can't wait to enter the giveaway!! :)

    Hi Tea, I am sorry I didn't mention the woman is not my own sketch - it is a print I found and used to make into a mixed-media artwork. I can see by your comment that you might have thought differently and I didn't want to take credit for what is not mine. :-)
