When inspiration doesn’t come, I go halfway to meet it.
~ Sigmund Freud

Inspiration isn’t an act of divine genius.

It comes from the small daily acts that move us along in the creative process.

Inspiration arrives in the quiet moments when you’re doing mundane tasks…

From simply showing up to do the work.

Don’t wait around for inspiration to happen before you start to paint.

Here are some simple steps to meet inspiration half way:

1- Show up on a consistent basis

2- When feeling uninspired, do some of the repetitive tasks that set you up for creativity.

3- Detach from the outcome and put play back in to your process. Play leads to inspired action.
