Imagination– A Pigment in the Minds Eye
I’ve been an artist since I could hold a pencil and draw. Colors constantly fill my world! I’m fascinated by patterns, designs, shapes, colors. When I’m thinking on what to write about, I doodle. Here’s a doodle on the paper where I was beginning to write today’s post. There I am holding a pencil, which was my very first creative tool for expressing myself.
When my senses are invoked by anything and I am being creative, my minds eye immediately races to my imagination. I’m sure it’s an actual place inside my head, where all these creative thoughts hang out just waiting to be used.
So I’m doodling (as you can see) and thinking about writing more about imagination.
Imagination has no boundarys, no limits (like you and your potential). Anything goes with imagination.
So I doodled and sketched a bit more and came up with these eyes. And I thought “colors and eyes”. Then the saying “A figment of my imagination” came into my head and looking at the eyes in my sketch I replaced the word ‘figment’ with ‘pigment’ and Voila I had my topic for the day – A Pigment of my imagination!
Your imagination is the equivalent of a treasure chest. Something to dig into again and again for inspiration. It is no coincidence that some of the most talented and brilliant humans on the planet who have ever lived refer to “imagination” as the most important thing there is! And it’s yours for the doing. Set your mind on fire with your imagination.
Open those gates to what’s waiting just inside your mind, better yet jump right in and explore. As I’ve already said imagination has no boundaries, yours to do as you wish, go where you want…nothing holding you back…but you! Be imaginative, have fun, there’s a glorious world waiting inside you…imagine!
Use your imagination. What might this be a picture of, or where, or when?
May your days and nights be filled with laughter, fun and love ~ thank you for stopping by, Penny
