Creativity in Lockdown

My creativity has wavered throughout Lockdown. At times, I have felt unable to write or draw. This has usually been in times of emotional upheaval or lockdown fatigue. I needed to concentrate on self care and rest.

I did try to write small amounts in a journal. Another thing that has helped with this difficulty has been my membership of a local community Art group. The support and encouragement from the group has been incredible.

The Creative Director and other leading members of the group set us a challenge of creating a piece of work in any medium in response to Scottish words. We were given a new word as a daily prompt throughout February.

My favourite words (as an adopted Scot, living in Scotland for the last 26 years) were: tattie-bogle or scarecrow, and glisk which means a glimpse of light.

Here are my interpretations.
