A few weeks ago during one of my art shows, I had an experience I've had many times before---but this time it set me off on a train of thought (resulting in a new podcast!). A festival visitor walked into my booth and took a few moments to look at my work on display. She smiled as she took in the images, colors, textures and stories in my works. After some time, she walked over to me and shook her head, asking "have you ever thought about being an illustrator for children's books? I would love to do something like this, but I don't have a creative bone in my body?" I smiled and thanked her for her kind comments. Minutes, hours, and days after the festival, I found myself stuck on this particular conversation. What had let her, and many other people I've met, to the conclusion that they had NO creativity whatsoever? What is creativity? Is it something that is solely reserved for people who CREATE ART, or is it more than that?
After a few weeks of pondering this idea, I decided that it was the perfect topic for a new podcast! So, I give you my fourth podcast adventure! I hope you enjoy listening, and if this topic strikes a chord with you, please leave me a comment! I'd love to hear your thoughts :)
Have a wonder-filled week!
