Hello Everyone–The rush of the Holiday Season is here. It’s easy to lose yourself in the excitement and yes, panic, of this time of the year. It’s hard to feel inspired if you’re frantically running around looking for that illusive Super Mario Brothers video game. Your mind is on your children, or family and friends that you are shopping for. Yet, if you just look around, you will find one of the greatest times of the year to be inspired by other’s art. Shops, stores and restaurants spend a fortune decorating for the holidays. Stop and gaze into that beautifully decorated window in the mall, look at the colors and shapes. Someone has spent a lot of time to make their store look inviting enough for you want to enter. Take advantage of these extra gifts to you. Snap a photo with your cell phone of a decoration that you like. File it under “Ideas for Art”. Stop at the food court in the mall and give yourself a gift. Sit and have a quiet, reflective cup of cocoa and a pretty holiday cookie from the bakery. Immerse yourself in the decorations. Watch the children. See Christmas through their eyes. Cherish the 10 minutes of calm to look at what surrounds you. Its will amaze you how many ideas you may glean from one day of shopping, if you will allow them to appear. May the beauty of holidays delight your eyes. Find your star and follow it’s light.
