Workshop with Susie Monday

The highlight of this past week was attending Susie Monday's workshop in creativity. I spent Thursday afternoon learning about different ways to spark creativity to create more meaningful art.
Susie shared a few design approaches to being creative by using recycled materials, taking inspiration from historical sources or using a natural object.
It was a fast paced workshop with very little time for "analyzing" choices but I didn't mind because it is the way I work. I usually have an idea of what I want to create but I seldom sketch or have a designed pattern.
We all work in a different way and that is the reason for art being so unique to the individual creating it.

For this exercise we had to pick texture, color or shape to create a 4" square. I picked color, my squares are the last two on the first row.
