I was listening to Pandora like I often do as I work in my studio, and the song from Plumb “Beautifully Broken” began to play. The words just resonated in my heart, and I found myself replaying the song over and over while soaking it all in.
Life is full of hardships... unexplainable, unimaginable hardships, and it isn’t my intention to discuss the why’s behind the tragic storms that we face...
5 Reasons why you should take time to play |Beverly Gurganus Fine Art
Playtime isn't just for kids, adults can benefit from play, and I'm sharing 5 reasons why you should incorporate play into your life.
Play can look differently for each of us...it could be experimenting with a new recipe, a family outing, going to your favorite store and trying on clothes with your besties, hitting the basketball court with the guys, etc... As a creative/artist, play is giving myself permission to paint whatever and however I want without any expectations of the outcome. It has been a long time since I allowed myself to paint without a plan, and it felt so good and free. I feel like the painting testifies to that freedom.
I painted with metal leaf and I liked it! I think you will too because gold leaf adds a touch of elegance to paintings that is not only beautiful, but eye catching. I love painting my Princess, Prince, and Crown paintings, but I was wanting to push the paintings further. Isn't that what us creatives do? I strive to always push myself towards growth by experimenting with new ideas as well as keep myself from getting bored with the same processes. So when I saw that you can use metal leaf in paintings, I knew I had to try it.
If you are like me, you are always looking for easy and budget friendly ways to bring fresh seasonal decor to your space. A throw pillow here and some flowers there...it's those small changes that can take a space from winter to spring, spring to summer, or summer to fall. This is one of the reasons I decided to start offering you a free digital print each month.
