|Christmas in Harlem (M.A. Reilly, 2011)|
I found this video referenced on Red Bubble's blog. I especially like 29.
The image that tops this post is one that I made in December 2011 after spending an afternoon looking at some of Romare Bearden's collages. I had taken a break from my daily work (Suggestion #7 in video below) and met a friend, Jane, in Harlem. On my way to the NY public library (Schomburg Center @135th Street) where Bearden's work was being displayed, I captured the image of the the woman in the foreground of the collage I would later make. Her coat color and jaunty hat caught my eye.
Staying creative is largely a matter of habit, breaking habit, and remaining open to possibility.
