Janine Gibbons: Creative Rituals
Like the octopus, women must be malleable. We must balance our hearts, minds and bodies and simultaneously accomplish multiple tasks in short order. I believe that how we feel becomes a part of the art we create. My best ideas come early in the morning. My Grandmother told me, “Don’t sleep your life away,” and I listened. I wake up at 4 a.m., make myself a cup of tea and start painting. Around 5 a.m., I do my yoga and meditation followed by a long walk. I feel the most open to creativity, new thoughts and ideas when I keep a healthy, clear mind.
