Creativity Tip: Go to a Gallery. Now.

This past weekend, as my husband, daughter and I wandered through the modern art collection at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, I got the urge to paint.

Then, we strolled over to see the Impressionists, and I was awestruck, as always.

Finally, before we could leave, I had to pay homage to the Seated Guanyin Bodhisattva, Liao Dynasty (907-1125). His home at the museum is one of my all-time favorite places in Kansas City. This room feels sacred.

I love the gallery, but it's been so long since we visited it, I had forgotten. Don't forget. If you're in Kansas City, visit the Nelson. If you're not, find a gallery close to you and wander.

It's good for the creative soul.

Love the Bodhisattva. I included him in my book and in the picture gallery of Kansas City.

And I love your creativity blog. I'll be checking out the archives.
