Over on Creative Perch, I've started writing a column about being everyday creative. The first week of my challenge I was supposed to make creativity my religion and come up with a ritual to honor that commitment.
I decided to incorporate my weekly collage making into my ritual of celebrating creativity. But first, I needed a muse to inspire me.
I found an image of an actual muse, "Seated Muse" to be exact. It's from a family guide at the Walter's Art Museum, where I visited earlier this year while on a brief trip to Baltimore. I placed her to the side with a mystical background and plain blocks of complementing colors to the other side.
