Remember being given a word, an idea or a theme and using that as inspiration? Remember the excitement that ran through your mind and traveled to your fingertips as your idea came to life?
The Inspirational Circle is back! In honor of sunshine and summer, this month’s theme is “friendship”. Let go of your creative block, and let the Inspirational Circle inspire you. So go ahead and brainstorm brilliant ideas and share them here with your fellow peers on our Facebook Event!
All creative work will be considered – drawing, painting, photography, poetry, prose, mixed media, sculpture, etc. If you post the work of others as inspiration, please cite the original source to give the artist credit. Please spread the word and invite others to join in.
Alright, to get started, here are definitions of friendship. This isn’t limited to the relationship between two friends. It can also be the friendship between lovers, family members, pets and objects. When you’re happy, who do you share your joy with? When you’re sad, who do you go talk to? Make it as fun and casual as you like, or as deep and emotional as you prefer. Go out there and spend some time with your loved ones or go people-watching and be a spectator of others. Don’t forget to take your pen, your sketchpad, your notebook, your camera, or whatever you need to capture the magic between people.
Here are some images that I found online that would inspire you 🙂
Aside from all this, I would like to request that everyone do a simple exercise, go through all your photos (whether it’s digital or traditional film) and look through all your precious memories that capture the “idea” of friendship. I started doing this to gather examples and was sort of amazed by what I saw. Not all of them are photos that I took (since I was in some of them), but it was really nice to go back and see the people who touched my life in one way or another. To see the pure love, trust and joy in everyone’s faces at that moment in time is really something. I think I will go through my photos and capture the ones that really speak to me in a Facebook album, and reach out to all the people who had touched my heart in the past, just to say “thank you” and “keep in touch” 🙂
