Scratch that. It does take thought and planning, but when I did the thinking and planning months ago, really it's like play time/recess in my hectic day. If you are wondering what the heck I am referring to, riddle no more. I am talking about my artwork.
When I am so stressed out that I cannot hardly use my brain, I end up thinking up goofy stuff like this:
Needless to say, I had fun painting this little picture. I haven't a clue what I am going to do with it or if I am going to frame it or where to hang it on my wall. Honestly, I just did it because I needed to let rip creative gas that didn't have a character arc, plot hole or dialogue. As much as I love writing, after a long hard day, sitting down and painting is so relaxing. Then, after dipping my fingers in color, my writer's brain kicks back on.
There is no rest in my head.
