Picasso on Intuition and Creativity

Pablo Picasso, Self Portrait, Oil on Canvas, 1907

Saw this terrific article on Picasso and his views on creativity. I liked that he said " to know what you are going to draw, you have to begin drawing." One cannot wait for inspiration to hit, one needs to show up every day and work.

Here is a link to the article.

Artist Highlight: Stella Maria Baer

Tiger Bunny Bugle, Ink on Paper

I was reading about the artist, Stella Maria Baer from the blog DesignSponge.com (article here) and wanted to share her work with you.  From the article, I like that she starts her day by journaling things that she wants to make -I love this aspect of her morning and would love to incorporate this into my daily routine.  There is a sense of the whimsical in her work and childlike innocence.

Inspirational Ted Talk by Brene Brown

Lately, I have been really enjoying the work of Brene Brown. Her specialty topics are shame and vulnerability. I wanted you to see her Ted talk on Vulnerability. It gives you lots to think about.
