Sometimes I get burned out and uninspired sitting in my bright blue chair working with my son at his schooling or working on the computer for websites and PAYPAL, or creating these art cards. So I gather up my art supplies, as it is all portable it is easy. And head out. A nice easy 10 min walk and I am in downtown Banos and in one of the nice coffee shops.
For those of you who don't already know, I love a good coffee. I celebrate it. I love the taste, the smell and for really good coffee shops: the presentation.
What I love about coffee shops is firstly the smell. Good Coffee can smell so amazing.
I look around at all the other people who have nothing better to do than to just chat and gossip about whatever( in this moment I am feeling very egotistic and french artist inspired) while pompously I have the grand ability/purpose to create something wonderful that is truly colorful, so on and commence to load my pencils and reassess my art and put color to paper. Okay so that was just silly but it was kind of fun to write. But that is the kind of silly and fun things you can imagine while quietly creating in a quiet space like a coffee shop.
I find that in really arty cafes: people around you can talk about interesting things and it helps to inspire your work. You don't really listen but you kind of do. Often in places like this, my color choices are louder, more creative and interesting.
If you are drawing people around you, it can be fun also for so many reasons, both naughty and nice depending on your mood and if you enjoy your own company and giggle at your own "mind" jokes. "Mind" jokes are easier as it never hurts anyone else's feelings, it is quite innocent, well my "mind" self is anyway. I like that about my "mind" self.
I hope that this little set of words explained that well enough.
Talk with you all a little later
wish me luck with PAYPAL.
