I've been in ruts, like anyone else. Sometimes they are life ruts, other times artistic ruts. It's not easy to get out of them- it takes effort for sure. Recently I found myself in a personal and artistic rut. I needed to find some inspiration. I decided to read. I read about light. About finding light and the absence of light. I read about the truth being in the light. I read about how it's important to look at the details as well as the big picture. I read about using your own environment for inspiration. And I climbed out of that rut, into a sliver of light coming from a bathroom window. I'm sharing some of the results.
