A big part of being creative for me is getting outside…….I am for the most part a studio artist….but I have tried Plein Air painting and found a myself wondering how in the world did Van Gogh do it. Northern Europe has strong winds to contend with….. so Van Gogh’s dedication to capture the colors while fighting the winds always inspires awe in me. But getting outside and experiencing the elements is an important aspect to tapping into the creative side of one’s brain.

Last night I did just that.  My husband and I joined a group of folks to paddle lake Hartwell in Tugaloo State Park’s ‘Harvest Moon Paddle’. We had such a great time! Even though it was a bit cloudy the moon did peek out a time or two giving us a full-moon smile.

Hope you are able to get outside soon to enjoy the wonders of God’s creation!
