My muse..................

It's been a week and I have just not felt anything creative, it was hard to try and make the bird and the insects, but I tried to stay focused. It was not easy. Yesterday while setting up my booth for the Fulton Street Artisan Market I took a look at it and thought, damn Bradley you really do need to focus, what is it I want to do? What kind of artist do I want to be? I had Halloween, Christmas, Alice in Wonderland, Fairies, bugs, birds, and watercolor paintings. What a mess. I cant decide what i want to do for the Grimm's ADO challenge, I have hardly started to sketch in my Sketchbook Project, and the Carnival has fallen to the way side. What am I doing?

Well as the day went on yesterday and I sold, bugs, birds, fairies, and watercolors I decided maybe I can have an eclectic mix of things, and then I brainstormed about the Grimm challenge with my friends Heather and Heidi and i now know what I'm doing for that. I have created four new faces and hands today and I'm ready to continue tomorrow after work. I'm not sure where you went my Muse or when you came back but boy am I glad to see you again. I've missed you.


  1. When someone is good at every genre and can put a smile on this sad soul, you know you have talent. Maybe your focus can be on making people smile and then the inspiration will come. I love everything you make, some wickedly wonderful, some beautifully simple, and some make me wish I was born a fairy.

  2. Thank you friend for the kind words for they are what inspires me and encourages me to keep creating.
