The creativity crisis – there is simple, but magic cure

In addition to all kinds of disastrous social symptoms, we are recently hearing about the creativity crisis. Really? How come? Why do we even need such a personal feature as creativity?

I doubt anybody with more or less understanding of personal development would argue that it is very important to develop our creative side and work on it. Creative activities help lessening different mental conditions and make life more cheerful by raising serotonin levels and, thus, add to our inner balance. Balance is the key to everything: good health, well-being, success and prosperity. Long-term and broad research shows that creative children are more likely to succeed and cope with any situation which comes up in their lifetime, they will feel more confident and less lost if something unexpected happens than those lacking creativity.  Creative activities can make one’s life easier, more interesting, fuller, more exiting and less stressful.

I was reading recently how becoming creative was described as getting into some state of mind and intentionally trying to make that happen. I am very sure it won’t happen that way. Becoming smart, interesting, enthusiastic and creative is not following five easy steps. This takes work, efforts, numerous experiments and perseverance. Creativity is not somebody will pour over you, and nobody can actually teach you how exactly to be creative. There are so many definitions, approaches, tests and scores to detect whether you are or are not a creative person. Creativity has to originate from the inside of an individual. It is possible to get advice, technical and practical guidance in any activities, but the process is up to you.

Creativity is a very attractive feature similar to being interesting, imaginative ability and innovative talent that empowers a person. We all have some desire to be noticed, to be loved and appreciated. By doing something creative we are opening the doors for love, appreciation, new friendships.

Whenever the talk touches creativity, nobody has told so far they know for sure they’d hate to be creative. I am most often receiving completely contrary messages. People complain their life is boring, dull, it is lacking any interesting or magic aspect and they would love to become somehow involved with creative things. So what’s stopping them?

Many people give up quickly anything which does not happen the way they thought it would right away. Some give up activity they just started to find out about because the results did not show after first half an hour or first attempt. Some are feeling sorry to spend any money on what they think is simply a pastime.

Spending some money on creative activities is inevitable. The least costly thing is probably writing poetry or stories. However, writing sad stories or poems, composing sad songs or listening to them can trigger low-spirits and depressive episodes, thus, sensitive people should rather participate in some artistic groups until they feel strong enough to do something on their own.

So, yes, you will have to spend some money for your fabrics or papers, for sewing machine or brushes, for garden or crafting tools. I would say that is definitely less than one spends on fast poisonous foods, useless drinks or antidepressant pills.

Depending on your creative activity, there are also real benefits because we spend way less money for anything we have created than bought ready-made. The creative mind works like this: I have some stuff, I’d need maybe some small bit of other stuff and I probably could make something great out of it. The consumerist’s mind works such a way: where do I get it and how much will it cost?

I am attaching for illustration some of recent teen group’s sketches and some of free choice project works done by our adult students. Enjoy!

Where to get inspiration or idea what is that you would like? There are hundreds of options: all craft and art shows, all creativity meetings, local meetings of writers and photographers, amateur song and dance festivals, amateur theater performances, garden shows, musical gatherings like open mikes, galleries, art and craft stores and departments, fabric stores and more. Besides, there are always people at these events and places who will give a good advice on where to start.

Yet, surveys and research tell us, the creativity is dramatically decreasing and something needs to be done to reintroduce more creative activities in our families, schools and society.

It is never too late to engage in creative things. Local people who are interested in art could join my art classes and attend the creative workshops. I am not surprised some of my students love these art classes so much that they return year after year, and they would miss anything else, but the weekly art class. It is obviously doing something good for them!

My experience after teaching at high schools, colleges, individually, in groups allows concluding the following. The idea of becoming creative most often is present in the family and it is passed over from generation to generation. Kids who pick up arts, crafts, sewing, writing, dancing, playing an instrument in early childhood most likely will continue engaging in some creative activities all life. There is much less depression, anxiety, upset moods, loss of interest in life, engaging in drugs, alcohol and troubles among teens who love creative life style and who paint, write, dance, sing, play an instrument, compose than in those who only spend all their free time on the street, in parties and at computer. The same goes for adults. People who do a lot of creative stuff are much less complaining about loneliness, depression, feeling lost, seeing no meaning or purpose in life than those who at the best go to the bar or sit in front of TV.

 

The endless waiting for spring: flowers of my dreams

It’s still chilly and nasty out there in Ontario. The rain is just pouring down in cold streams tonight. Not a good background for happy thoughts. Although, we should appreciate the fact that it is at least not that cold anymore. One step at a time towards the warmth.

I remember my first spring in Canada: it was so sunny, so overwhelmingly warm, everything blossoming; and such insanely uplifting green was everywhere. I had already all the garden planted and coming up around this time. That was 10 years ago. We have experienced quite bad weather conditions since then, and, no, I do not assume anymore that Ontario weather is any better than Latvian.

It is no secret that we are already desperately hoping the weather forecast will have some good news for us, too. I recently looked at some of my paintings, and I don’t think I am going to paint or draw winter again any time soon. Instead, I am about to do way more florals, I worked out some nice flowers on the hill concepts, and when it is November I will paint autumn trees, distant skies and fog.

Since all my thoughts are in spring, with spring and about spring, my sketches, drawings and watercolors reflect that. These sketches or pen and watercolor images were all started as demonstrations. I am aware I have too many demo works on the go, and most of them never get finished, but that’s just the way I am. I cannot have one single class without demonstrating something. This something gets developed, and later it seems: it’s probably worth putting in more work.

I thought these could be perfectly used as images for greeting cards.

It’s been also mostly dark, so it’s hard to catch a good day with a normal daylight to get proper colors on my photos because any type of electric light does not allow to have them as in reality.

It matters: enhance your personal space with positive energy

The birth of a miracle may be not always easy, but there is undeniably some magic in it.

How can doing art as a hobby make one’s life better, more balanced, more enhanced and richer?

Along with time-well spent and new skills, there is one more advantage which is rarely mentioned. Any artwork created during classes can become a beautiful decorative element: it could be just the missing final touch for the room, it could be the accent piece; or it could be the part tying the entire space together and making it complete. This artwork radiates clean, uplifting and positive energy in the living space or workspace, because we created it with love and devotion.

The story is actually about the energy: energetic interaction, consumption and release of energy, good, bad and neutral energy. Since energy is present anywhere and in anything, and not even the simplest thought could be made without consuming some of it; the question is: do we pay enough attention to our nearest surroundings, our closest environment and the dominating energetic features within that space? We really don’t, and we are most often between two ditches: following punctually every newest design trend, or completely disregarding any design, hygiene rules and common sense.

There are lots of reviews about impact of color, lots of advice how to create a cozy, welcoming space, but what matters at the end is: energy in that space. I do believe we’ve seen this all: museum-like houses or sterile living rooms, living rooms which are collections of one’s past, and top-modern minimalistic spaces.

In my opinion, the best and the fastest way to update and adjust a space to our needs is using color, art, textiles and plants. Furniture becomes secondary, and all these previously mentioned things also take care about a great energetic flow and preserve the positive energy. Provided, they have such. It matters what hangs on your walls, it really matters hugely, and I’m not talking about the purely esthetic aspects. Wallmart print will have at the best some neutral energy of printer, cheap canvas and paint. Inherited art or an antique item may have both: very positive and extremely negative energy. So can an original painting. Painting during its creation process absorbs our thoughts, emotional vibrations, delight and thoughtfulness, or hate, misery and anger; anything. That way, the energy of a painting is equal to the energy artist puts in this creation. Most people naturally give their art the best part of themselves by visualizing all these places they are re-creating on canvas: light, wind, flowers and leaves, waves, streams and the atmospheric vibrations in the air.

One thing I can say for sure: the atmosphere during our painting sessions is extremely positive. It’s such a pleasure to grab the shiny paint and just put it on canvas. The classroom itself contains plenty of art in all completion stages: just started, half-done and finished. This contributes to the relaxing state we most often find ourselves in. I mean, it’s very unlikely, these beautiful works could have some bad energy since we genuinely try, we challenge ourselves, and the results are more than satisfying, especially taking into account, no professional artists have done these paintings.

There simply is not any better way to give your space a facelift than surrounding yourself by your own original art and creations. It is not that we are always aware: whatever we paint, we are painting ourselves. This is very noticeable in portrait artists’ works and in those who mostly paint figurative works: these painted or drawn people are a reflection of the artist. That would be another story, but even when painting trees, scenery, street scenes, anything in fact, we ARE ALWAYS painting ourselves. This is how the painted energy starts a life on its own. No doubt, it should be very compatible with its creator.

One more amazing thing is: the monetary value actually does not affect the true energy which some item possesses. That means we should stick to things which make us feel good, not only to those ones which cost a lot and are supposed to be “value”. The monetary value only shows one’s financial power while the energetic value has something much more important and substantial: it possesses the ability to ensure the well-being of our soul.

The red tree project: diagonal composition

I have to admit, that photos don’t reflect these paintings perfectly. This art class ends fairly late at night, the light is not the best for taking pictures.

Colors are great, however, they looked more balanced in reality.

The goal of our last project was implementation of diagonal lines in the composition. While we care how the finished (or almost finished) project work comes out and how it looks, we are paying the most attention to mastering different techniques and approaches. We all know that diagonal lines contribute to depth and perceptional ease of an artwork; however, we tend to forget about such feature. This was an art exercise to practise exactly such type of composition. Did we achieve our goal? You be the judge!

Sketching in watercolor: what’s the advantage?

I’m usually advising my students: if you ever would like to learn drawing for real, do not use photos, grids and other tools, but only your eyes in addition to paper and pencil. That provides with a huge artistic freedom and allows not to depend on camera, printer, computer and photo editing software. That also saves a lot of time. It is more difficult for some people to draw and paint from a real object initially, but it is like everything else: once you’ve understood how it’s done, the improvement is continuous and inevitable.

I grew up and learned painting without any cameras and photos. There was no internet, there were no computers. I suppose, that’s why the number of artists was noticeably smaller, too: in order to paint or draw something, you simply had to employ your visual abilities and imagination. I am disagreeing with those who are trying to convince us that everybody in the past was using some kind of camera obscura in order to capture accurate details, proportions and perspective. It’s believed, mostly amateur artists were using it since they did not have the knowledge and capability of producing good drawings. I know, everybody has heard about Canaletto whose drawings were created that way. Well, there a few others, too. However, majority of artists were using THEIR OWN visual perception and THEIR OWN drawing ability.

I find that most people cannot draw not because of inability to handle pencil and create the image, but because they don’t know what to look for when they are seeing something and would like to re-create it on a paper or canvas. That takes practice and work, that’s all.

I love doing drawings or sketches just for my own pleasure. It’s so great to see some stuff evolving on a sheet of a blank paper. Nothing really compares to this fantastic feeling! That always excited me, and I could spend hours drawing alone while other kids were playing in the yard. I would draw anything in the garden, on the street, I used to do lots of portraits of my sister, other kids and later my daughter and my group-mates at the University.

Paintings are sometimes bothersome, especially the large and very large ones because that simply is a lot of work, it can be hard physical work, as well, when handling huge canvasses.

Sketching with pencil, watercolor, pen, ink or with watercolor and ink is a quick way of capturing the desired scenery of object. I cannot draw recently anything tiny because my eyes are getting worse and am trying not to use glasses. Well, my sketches are between 10 x 12 to 12 x 16 in, but done quite fast.

Sketching still life: ink and watercolor

There are many advantages of sketching with pencil, watercolor, ink and pen or some of these together. First of all, sketching allows to stay focused. It’s like a daily exercise which keeps us in a good shape. Our senses stay sharp and fresh, and it’s easier to get back to larger artwork after a break when one has been often sketching.

Sketching in watercolor and pen

Sketching does not take much time, it is very relaxing. Many artists and people who are doing art for pleasure know that lack of time is an ongoing problem.

Floral sketch, still life sketching

Sketching is a good thing when one wants to experience another medium, try another subject or style. There are millions of different ways of sketching, meaning, there is something for everybody.

Sketching still life in watercolor

Finally, sketching is crucial for those who want to master drawing for real and from live objects, or to capture a plein-air scenery. We can learn writing when we read a lot, we can learn many things just reading about them, but drawing is something which we can only learn by doing it. The more we draw, the more we sketch, the more artistic options we get. We might get this way a new idea, a new approach and we might find a completely new style which works for us. I always have something on my studio tables: flowers, cups, jugs (my favorites, I have a large collection of them!), fruits, berries, room plants, books, painting supplies and so on. I’m already waiting for springtime because that’s when the true sketching starts as the nature wakes up and takes us outdoors.

It is also possible to frame sketches and use them as beautiful art for decorating your space. Sketches can make great illustrations and sometimes serve as a standalone artwork.

Happy sketching! Please share your experiences with different media and subjects if you have time.

Stolen painting: alert for illustrators and artists

Thanks to a fellow blogger, I was notified this morning that some blogger at WordPress is publishing my painting as her own on her blog.

I checked this out and could not believe my eyes: not only had she created a copy of this painting, but had a nerve to attach some kind of her signature to it, as well!

I published this painting on my blog last July:

http://inesepogagallery.com/2013/07/18/i-love-birds-and-natural-awakenings-publishes-my-painting-on-the-august-issue-cover/

and added it to my Fine Art America painting site:

http://inese-poga.artistwebsites.com/featured/chaffinch-2-inese-poga.html

http://inese-poga.artistwebsites.com/art/all/birds/all

Full sheet bird watercolor paintings

I was preparing these paintings for a show, so I painted more on one sheet and later separated.

Chaffinch 2: watercolor painting

This is how I attached the finished paintings to wood panels, and they were ready to go to the art show:

Watercolor paintings for bird art show

Here is the blog address of the thief:

http://artembrace.wordpress.com/

http://artembrace.wordpress.com/2014/02/14/14-02-2014/

http://artembrace.wordpress.com/author/acvetkoska/

http://artembrace.wordpress.com/author/acvetkoska/

http://artembrace.wordpress.com/my-paintings/

If you check out “My paintings” (that’s where my chaffinch appears, too) and “My drawings”, you would notice how different all of these paintings and drawings are, they look no way as one artists works. I guess, there may be more art which does not belong to A. Cvetkoska.

If you see a painting which belongs to somebody you know, don’t be lazy and please contact these artists, as well.

It says under “About” on this blog the following:

A.Cvetkoska is a young girl who express the way she feels trough her paintings. She lives in Ohrid and studies at a local high- school.

Is that terrible or what? It’s great that many young and old people are willing to learn draw and paint, but some of them obviously don’t want to spend any time on this. It’s much nicer and easier just to receive compliments.

Well, I’m not aware how to deal with this copyright infringement, however, I’d appreciate somebody lets me know if WordPress can be notified in such cases. I will make a note on Facebook, as well, and tweet this stuff.

Why is this not acceptable? It’s not only the bitter feeling that somebody takes credits for your hard work, but obviously prints of paintings can be sold from any site.

It is already the second occasion recently when I find my art under somebody else’s name. Well, I don’t like that, but the only way here is probably to either photograph art so that it cannot be used for re-sale or place the watermark all over. I used to apply only small watermark at the bottom, and it didn’t help. She just cut it off.

Please contact me if you have some suggestions. I would really appreciate that.

I just found out that the purple bird is painted by Dean Crouser. My guess is, she copied everything from Pinterest.

Painting with sponge in acrylic

Paint application with sponge has definitely huge potential in acrylic painting. It adds some sort of texture and interesting touch in watercolor, but it really makes a big difference when using sponge with acrylic paints. I tried this technique in scenery so far, but opportunities are endless. It would create great effects in abstract images, mixed media works and general acrylic paintings. We were using in class sea grass sponges. The textures may vary depending on shape of each particular sponge. Sponging on paint on a dry layer creates fairly sharp and noticeable edges, and this technique allows to blend different colors while they are still wet fairly effortlessly.

Collage of project paintings, some may require more work, but this technique is very promising

We did not use sponge for the entire painting, but that is an option, too. I liked how sponging can be combined with other layering techniques and simple brushwork. The drawback was a pretty big mess, and we had to use gloves, as well. It is also easier to overdo using sponge than brush, however, sponging noticeably shortens time needed for one scene. I will definitely continue using sponge for my own paintings, and we will keep it in mind as an additional tool for works which students are creating during their classes.

Try something different: painting with sponge

I decided that adding some new technique wouldn’t disturb. Why not to give it a try?

This time it was application of watercolor using a sea grass sponge. It worked well with acrylic (I will post these pictures separately), it seemed it could work nicely with watercolor, as well.

I could see after the first attempts that it is advisable to test colors first. There are lots of brands, many types of paints, it’s hard to know whether the chosen colors will or won’t mix well. The big fear was not to overdo right at the beginning. Sponging sort of takes away easily, and it takes no time to lose focus and to forget where exactly was I intending to place any particular paint. I did not plan for these paintings, I just got straight to sponging. I would advise anybody who is trying this technique to plan a small bit ahead. Sponge allows to create beautiful watercolor backgrounds, like distant trees or forests, it is amazing how quickly some spots get textures, and it is a fantastic for layering watercolor paints. Simply don’t forget to test your colors.

It seemed that Hooker’s green light and dark in combination with French ultramarine, Cobalt blue, Payne’s grey, Lemon yellow and Burnt sienna or Burnt umber worked better than Sap green in any combination unless I mixed only 2 or 3 colors in all layers.

Sea grass sponges are inexpensive and available at any art store, that’s at least where I got them. Every sponge is slightly different, so will be textures created using these sponges. I cut my sponge in smaller parts, and used every time that part which seemed to be the most fitting. Sponge has to be made wet at first, and we should squeeze out all excess water before picking up the paint with it.

Sponging works on wet paper (wet in wet application), and we can paint nice distant backgrounds this way. It creates thicker layers and attractive irregular shapes when applied on dry paper. It is possible to create the entire painting this way, and it looks especially great when we combine different techniques.

Generally speaking, application of a sponge helps loosen up, and sponge is a good tool to vary paint application techniques.

These paintings look somehow better not photographed. The light hasn’t been too suitable recently, but regardless of how hard I tried, I did not get the balance on photos which is present on paper. This might be due to the distinctive number of layers at each part since camera sees everything not in the same way as the human eye sees. These things were tough to photograph, it was almost as bad as taking pictures of pastel drawings.

Layering quite a few colors with sponge is interesting: we never know how it will look at the end!

The distant forest is painted using sponge: the darks in the background look much darker than on paper, like I said before, camera picks out some spots and reflects colors differently from the human eye.

Painterly Saturday afternoons

Painterly afternoons on Saturdays is a new guided art activity at my studio-gallery.

Who and what is this activity suitable for?

It is for people of all ages who would like to try drawing or painting and experience a nice atmosphere, friendly company and plenty of inspiration.

It is for those who look for inspiration, or need some advice or help with their art. It is also for those who have stuck or don’t know how to get back to creation of art. We have sometimes started an artwork, but are not sure how to proceed. What to do next? What color to use? What other steps to take? When is the painting finished? How much of detail should be implemented? How to correct unsuccessfully painted spots? Why does the painting have no impact? I can suggest answers to these and other questions you are facing with your artistic endeavors.

It is for those who think they already depend too much on mobile devices and their computers. Take a break and employ your artistic side of the brain! While addiction to devices frequently stresses out even young kids, drawing and painting activities allow to calm down and recharge for any upcoming events which one may anticipate.

It is for those who feel lonely and upset and wish they had something nice to engage in during their leisure. It is not always the finished artwork which matters, sometimes the re-gained self-confidence and relaxed state of mind are much more important!

Watercolor washes: kids and teens project

It is for those who feel bored, tired and exhausted. Why not to do something completely different? It’s always worth a try. You may be surprised how much pleasure is in simple artistic task.

Fall birches collage: acrylic painting project

It is for those who complain they never have their own time. Take your time and enjoy some quiet moment in the stormy life.

Materials for regular painting styles in watercolor and acrylic, as well as drawing paper and pencils are sold or offered (depends on size and type of materials), and anybody can take their own stuff, as well.

Winter creek project: acrylic for adults

You could find out about new techniques or approaches, you would be able to refresh your artistic senses or learn something, too. It is not a regular class or workshop, but I am always offering tips, ideas, help and advice. I specialize in nature, still life, floral and scenery drawing and painting, and that is pretty much the skill I can share.

Orchards in bloom: acrylic painting project

Real flowers, fruits and vegetables most often will not be available during winter months, however, there are usually some. References photos for scenery, floral and still life painting are offered if you would like to try this type of drawing and painting.

Abstract scenes or abstract art can be created easily, as well, and I will provide with additional materials.

Uniqueness of emerging painting styles and the seeming simplicity of winter scene

Winter ends in the art studio around half January. That’s just how impatient we are: once Christmas is over, we’ve got to start preparing for Valentine’s Day, Easter and most importantly for spring.

While winter may seem to be long, boring and unpleasant to many people, we are using the best part of it: the picturesque beauty of snow-covered fields makes a good scene for painting, especially when contrasted with frozen or silently running dark streams to which the majestic attraction of trees under the snow is added.

Well, our vision and perception of any object are absolutely unique: there are no two persons who can see one thing in exactly the same way. That’s how nature has taken care of our individual features. That’s also how one image becomes a reflection of many personal interpretations and allows to create lots of distinctive paintings which are attractive in their own way. Painting as a process is a very individual activity regardless of how much of external experience or a priori knowledge we are implementing in this process. The art we are creating from scratch will always carry our own features, as well. From psychological point of view, it is possible to associate certain types of lines, composition, application of paint, colors, amount of detail or lack of it with particular human features. I find this fantastic because that’s one more way how our uniqueness manifests.

The emerging painting style is like handwriting: once we have perfected it, it’s completely ours. Does it make sense to repeat somebody else’s writing? Probably not, not even in these cases when you are told your writing is hard to read. The most beautiful hand-writings are actually all complicated and hard to read.

The happy artists

Opening the first page of the new calendar

Let the river of time take away our troubles and worries!

Winter night: the last light

The New Year is standing at our doorstep; we should welcome it with a great meal, candle light and warm thoughts.

Let’s look up to the sky: maybe some nice surprise is waiting for us, maybe the New Year’s inspiration will take us to new heights and allow more dreams to come true.

Winter sky: the path to eternity

Candle lights are alive, and the bad energies are destroyed in fire. As we look at this light, we should imagine all great things we would like to happen, and they just might come true. At least during this wonderful holiday season and at the moment of entering the New Year, we should have only positive thoughts, provide the encouragement to the sad and care for the sick, wish more good things to everybody, not only ourselves.

The New Year’s color is blue, I’m sure we can find something blue in our closet.

The more candles we have lightened up at midnight, the more chances we have our wishes are fulfilled. We can write one of our wishes on paper straight before midnight, this should be a very definite wish for some particular thing, and we burn it afterwards, and scatter the ashes outdoors so they’d go with the wind.

Happy New Year! Warm hearts and shelters, good health and abundance of things you need, true love and lots of honestly earned money!

Happy New Year 2014!

We are about to open the first page of the New Year’s calendar. Let’s hope all following pages are filled with events, results and achievements we wished for.
