The Sunday Creative - Open

As a follow up to Creativity Bootcamp, I'll be participating in Meagan's "The Sunday Creative."  She'll post a theme each Sunday for us to work on throughout the week.  I'm excited to have a challenge each week and to again be working with a group of creative and supportive artists as we each work on this project together.


When I saw today's theme, I instantly thought of a photo I captured in Thailand a couple of months ago of a line of open windows inside one of the many temples.  The shutters were made with beautiful teak wood covered in gold.  With the sun shining in and reflecting off the gold the entire temple seemed to glow.

Open was the perfect kick-off for this new project - for me the lasting lesson from Bootcamp that I plan to carry over is the need to open my eyes and other senses to the beauty all around and the opportunities to expand my skills, which makes today's song, Snow Patrol's "Open Your Eyes" a good fit.

Your photo is so eye catching and indeed perfect for the open prompt. I too am trying to see the beautiful that's all around us everyday. I'm surprised at the many things I've missed....trying not to be so blind anymore.
Looking forward to tomorrow's prompt, all the wonderful interpretaions that will appear, and the sparkle of creativity I'll find in myself as well.
Happy day to you.
