I knew it had been a long time since I played in my creative space when I saw a big, silky cobweb connect the ceiling to the top of my art table. How did this happen? Creativity is a key component of my life yet I diminished its worth, letting anything & everything else get in the way. Setting aside the things we love isn’t healthy so I took a couple of hours to clean my art space & reacquaint myself with the treasures waiting patiently on shelves, tucked into storage bins, & hidden behind cabinet doors. This reawakened my creativity & inspired me to start a new project. Gathering the paints & objects that “spoke to me”, I went upstairs & decided to transform an old table into something new. First, I painted it a glossy red, then covered it with gypsy-inspired objects.
It’s important to reevaluate our priorities once in a while, making sure we allow space in our lives for who & what matters most. To see Gypsy Table & other art work that I have for sale, please visit my shop at www.etsy.com/shop/PureSusan.
