    Hi Janet . Thanks so much for sharing this. My creative process is very close to yours. And colors play a tremendously important role in it. Kandinsky said that color created a resonance in us and art can thus at moments make the human soul vibrate. I love that idea of soul vibrations because it’s really what I resent.
    That’s why I feel that what we actually do is paint our emotions.
    Have a wonderful day.

    Janet, your gentle reminder that creative play is the entry to bringing our vision into focus is the message that I needed to hear. You’ve given me the nudge and inspiration ~ I look forward to having fun creating without restraint today.

    Beautiful paintings Janet! And I love hearing about your creative process, seeding ideas and using play to nurture them. 🙂 May I use one of these images to create a poem for my blog?

    Janet, you and a few others have been encouraging me all week long with words of hope and inspiration! I am planning to sit at my desk and play with my watercolors this weekend! I have been doing other stuff, and some drawing, but it has been too long since I just played with any paint! Thanks so much for all you share. Your hummingbirds are gorgeous!

        You’re welcome. I’ll take encouragement any time! 😉 I have been pretty busy this weekend going to a writer’s forum (a local group) meeting where I got to share my first picture book which is still in progress and I got a new phone so I have been busy downloading apps and syncing everything! Very time-consuming. But today I am taking pictures of my picture book so I can put the whole thing on my blog at some point. I hope you’re having a great weekend! 🙂

    Janet I continue to be amazed by your colorful and vivid watercolors/gauche paintings. And I can see a bit of the source in your encouraging words. Cheers for sharing your gift with us

    Yes, Janet, I like your idea that the more we exercise our creativity, the more second nature it becomes. The time between idea and execution becomes shorter and shorter with constant, constant painting or writing, I think. And along with it, confidence grows stronger, doesn’t it? I so enjoyed this post, the writing and the painting, and all those lovely Janet Weight Reed colors.Thank you.

    We are enjoying the hummingbird print on metal that Diana received as a birthday gift. It makes us think of you.

      Hi David…hope you are enjoying a lovely weekend….and I am delighted that you and Diana now own one of the hummingbirds on metal…it pleases me a great deal 🙂 Yes, there’s no question that practise and a constant exercising of our skills is the key to all things creative. The more we put out, the more we receive back…..Janet 🙂
