How do you stay creative Ginette?

A question that seems to be natural is "Ginette, how do you stay creative?" 

After almost 20 years of daily creative work it's not always easy, to stay creative. I make it a point to learn something new, do something new and different regularly. I explore new mediums, I change my subject matter, I take a few days off and do something very different that I enjoy. I go for hikes. I read books about my favorites painters and get inspired by their live stories.

There are many other things I like to do and actually do. I LOVE baking bread. Artisanal breads. I like to learn something new every day. I read about plants, nature, science and out of this world topics. I am interested in almost everything.

These breaks from paintings give me fresh ideas. I visit with friends which I enjoy and engage in conversation. Mostly I am a loner type person and like solitude. So when I go out, to have some visits, I look forward to my quiet time in my studio with my cats. I have three. Used to be five but they are all older now. And mama cat passed away a couple of years ago.

So staying creative isn't really very hard because creativity is my genes and if I take an absence, I will miss it in no time at all.

If you have a question contact me. I will answer if I can here on and
