Sometimes amazing creativity can come out of solemn times. I recently had the huge pleasure of joining Katie Rodgers of @paperfasion in a “creative duet” that you may have seen here on my Instagram. I played a song (The Prayer) on the piano which she then used to inspire a painting. You can see the side-by-side video of our efforts here. Katie began this series of creative duets a few weeks ago, working with many different artists, as a fun way of encouraging people to enjoy creative pursuits of all kinds, at all levels, especially during these trying times. Whether you've been thinking of painting, needlepointing, knitting, pulling out your clarinet, making friendship bracelets, or just getting out in your driveway with sidewalk chalk, these hobbies can be so cathartic. Personally, I’m getting completely lost in Etsy’s DIY craft projects that are endless sources of inspiration.
