Just Playing...

Not everything needs to be an amazing piece of art. Sometimes you just have to play. Play is where ideas come from and skills are discovered...for instance:

I found a store with a stash of white buttons.

a white button
I bought a bunch of these white buttons...and painted them.

a blue button

Yellow buttons
I had a sea of button possibilities.

I have no idea what to do...but painting them is fun!
And then, while outside having coffee, a dragonfly flew over my head, and landed.

And I suddenly had a silly idea.

Actually - while playing with THIS idea, another one developed...and THAT idea is currently in the pickle.

Playing leads to discoveries. Don't forget to play.

Imagination is the beginning of creativity.
George Bernard Shaw
