Inner Child at Play ~ Abstract for Creative Everyday



The above photo is of an abstract painting done with the idea of letting your 'inner child' play. It was fun and freeing to my creative spirit. Letting it go. Let It Be.


Winter on Cape Ann

Welcome to our Monday post and lots of creative works, photography, poetry and art. There is the playful painting, the photo montage and the cold wintry ice, snow and beach rocks photos. We try to walk everyday and explore and play even in the cold.

  8. Those buildings look so delightfully sunny in contrast with the white of the snow! To play in the spirit of a child is a wonderful feeling of abandonment and freedom! Lovely haiku!

  14. Being young today - what a great idea!

    Did I ever tell you my motto:
    What I lack in youth I make up for with immaturity.

    Cheers!

  16. I really like the contrast between the texture of the rock and the ice. A most interesting image! And I find it really hard to imagine ice on a beach - living here in Australia.
