I’ve talked about learning by reading and by listening to others, but there’s also a special way of learning that’s tied to the creative side each of us has. When I started painting, I began to see the world with new eyes. I took the time to carefully observe nature and the things around me. Now, years later, I take pleasure in noticing new things each day. My world constantly expands and becomes more fascinating. Whether you’re a painter or a poet or a photographer or a musician, you can find great inspiration in the world around you. Your creative side urges you to look and listen and discover, and each new discovery nurses and bolsters your creative side.
