august at MFCH – my month of creativity

I’m an enormous believer within the significance of getting artistic. Carving out a while within the day to make some fairly is one of the best remedy I can factor of.

Creativity is available in so many alternative kinds: I discovered elevating my youngsters to be very artistic; designing and sustaining my backyard; adorning my residence; arranging flowers; baking a cake or laying a desk! We won’t all be gifted artists, however we will all discover a solution to specific ourselves that’s balm to our soul.

However creativity is sort of a tender plant, we’ve got to nurture it and encourage it. If we lock our creativity at nighttime with out gentle or water then it’s going to dwindle and we endure. That is one thing I’ve found just lately. MFCH might have began as a easy weblog however it has change into a enterprise, and it’s time-consuming. There are artistic days after all, however there are days when it is not possible for me to seek out the time to do one thing artistic, and this shortly turns into a vicious circle.

So I made a decision to make the month of August my artistic month. Attempt to revive my very own small inventive potential and likewise observe the gifted artists that I’m fortunate sufficient to satisfy and observe how they use their artwork, and the way it shapes their lives.

Right now is the primary encounter, I wish to speak to you about Bruno Louis. An artist I do know within the south of France. He lives within the tiny hilltop village of Tourtour and paints the folks and scenes he sees in on a regular basis village life. His medium is pen and watercolour, his signature type are his quirky portraits of village life, and likewise the ornate ceramics that he decorates and sells.

He did not develop up on this village however arrived on a whim, discovered a home to stay in and stayed. Because of his artwork, his easel and his generosity he has change into an necessary determine in village life.

He discovered to color at artwork college, and developed his talent additional when he labored at Moustiers, one other village well-known for its embellished ceramics. He’s naturally pretty shy, and really modest. However due to his artwork, he meets folks from all walks of life, and has even change into the official ‘Recorder of Occasions’, and is introduced in to sketch and paint household celebrations; village events and extra.

On my instagram as we speak you may watch a video I fabricated from him sketching the market this summer season. And within the present version of the MFCH Journal you may be taught extra about his work.

I will be again in a couple of days with a really totally different artistic providing. Hope your summer season goes properly…. and that you’re discovering a while to precise your self, irrespective of your medium.
