“Jump away from the well-worn path, rebooting your senses and sensibilities with refreshing stimulation. Give yourself permission to feel what you feel, then take those feelings and invent with them.
If you’re bored, or angry, dismayed or burned out, you’re not paying attention to the swarm of creative opportunities each moment delivers. Practice a little less self absorption and a lot more self invention.
The moment calls you to invent, and you’re made for it. Be crazy good inventive with big things, little and in between.” ~ Ralph Marston
What great advice! And my self portraits reflect this idea because my best work happens when I put my heart and soul into it. I give myself permission to honor the feelings I’m having, no matter how difficult they are to deal with. If I don’t honor them, I get stuck and depressed. When I honor them I create fantastic self-portraits. Don’t you agree?
