Day 1 of My Creative Commitment

Almost missed the first day of my commitment! It was 9 pm last night when I realized I still needed to do something. Anything!

This painting in my sketchbook was the result and I have to admit the colours made me smile this morning. I even learned some things doing this.

  1. Making a commitment public has power. If I was the only one I’d committed to, I probably would have let this slide. At 9 pm I was comfortably ensconced in my favorite chair watching a movie.
  2. I can no longer use the excuse that “I’m a morning person” and therefore couldn’t possibly be creative after dinner.
  3. For me, being creative means drawing or painting.  I need ink and colour.
