Letting inspo find you
Inspiration exists, but it has to find you working | Pablo Picasso
I can’t ask Señor Picasso what he meant by that quote, but my interpretation is that inspiration will find you in its own time. Yet, for it to find you, you have to put in the work first, experiment, sketch and create as much as you can.
And sometimes, it’s best to leave your desk altogether.
It might sound counter-intuitive, but being creative all the time is hard and for new thoughts to enter your mind, you need to unblock it first.
Taking a walk, breathing in the sea air and listening to the sound of the waves is what works for me.
It calms me down and energises me at the same time – isn’t it wonderful how nature works?
