Framed painting: $300.00 starting bid + S&H

What feelings do you have when being creative? I often feel a sense of wonder and admiration of whatever I am contemplating, knowing that i am trying to build something new, trying to invent a new way, or just trying to face a new solution to an old problem. One of the things I like most when I am in a creative mood is that I also feel more one with myself, as if I am listening to my inner self with more intention and allowing ideas to grow that maybe before I would stop because I thought they were silly or maybe foolish.

Instead when feeling creative, I am filled with a carefree attitude towards the world, excited to develop new ideas, and enthusiastic to expand on a known concept, and trail blaze a new path.

If ever you need to face a challenge with a creative sense, look for what you admire in it, face it with the child-like attitude of wonder and begin to listen to what interests you. This may lead you into a new frame of mind, and soon you will be inventing and developing new ideas...
