Widely Enthusiastic about Little Things

Copyright 2019 by R.A. Robbins

“I still get wildly enthusiastic about little things…

I play with leaves.

I skip down the street and run against the wind.”

Leo F. Buscaglia

“There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age.”

^Arts and Crafts Day

Copyright 2105 by R.A. Robbins

Artist’s can get caught up in competition and the need for “success” as much as anyone.  For me art has to be fun.  If it stops being fun my inspiration dries up.  It can be a delicate balance.

When my work stops being fun I like to play a little by making children’s craft projects.  The key to this is to just have fun and not get caught up in doing things perfectly.  It can also be a great way to relax.

Give it a try.  To get you started here are a few projects from Parents Magazine.


Do Not Forget to Play

Over the Mountains Across the Plains to Grandma’s House we Go — Copyright 2012 by R.A. Robbins


Do not forget to play in life and really enjoy it.”    —Eileen Caddy

I believe that creating art is about play and having fun.  Today’s art is “Over the Mountains Across the Plains to Grandma’s House we Go.”  This is a playful piece depicting the family driving cross country to visit Grandma in Florida.  It is available for sale in the Espirational Gallery.

“When we engage in what we are naturally suited to do, our work takes on the quality of play and it is play that stimulates creativity.”
