Raising the Bar

As you may have read, Dean had his first art show this past weekend. His pics looked great with fabulous frames that he and his prettier half painstakingly selected. And with that, he has raised the bar. I felt compelled to go out and buy frames for my pics as well since we'll be in a show together in a couple of weeks. That is what is great about being around creative people. They give you ideas, sometimes one's you never thought of before and they challenge you to be better at your craft.

Thanks Deano!

I can think back at a time when I was drawing just for the fun of it, as opposed to doing it for a class project, and writing poetry. The people I kept company with certainly helped to perpetuate the creativity. Then, there were times when just the opposite happened. No creative juices were flowing. Ugh, hate that!

Family functions with NittanyBri's family really get the creative juices going. It seems everyone in his family his very talented in one thing or another. There is a costume designer for the theater, someone who makes furniture, another that makes fabulous purses, an interior designer, a graphic artist, massage therapist, and an art historian. I'm sure I'm forgetting someone.

I feel I have to make something now.

A costume designer, massage therapist, someone who makes furniture. Those were all characters on Seinfeld :)

Umm... you forgot an engineer. That's demented and sad, but creative.
