Creativity & Courage

Day Quote Challenge Day 3

I was nominated by Manuela to participate in the 3 day quote challenge.

Thank you to for nominating me for this challenge.




“Creativity Takes Courage”-Henri Matisse

One of my favourite quotes because it is one thing to have an idea or image in your head and another to actually go about bringing it to form. There is a lot of doubt and uncertainty. You will make mistakes.  The result won’t be like you expected, but it is worth a try.

My nominees are:


Dark Vs Light

7 Things About Me

1. I am a huge dreamer, and it’s a problem..

2. I have had a passion for photography since I was a child, but I didn’t take it more seriously until I began this blog.

3. I keep a block of A4 lined paper on my nightstand because when I wake up in the morning ( eh afternoon) I am bombarded with dialogue for screenplays. I also keep a dream journal. I usually dream about eating chocolate 😉

4. I have a university degree in Cultural Anthropology.

5.  Stray cats take advantage of me. They know that I’m a sucker! I recently saved one death. So proud!

6. I was ‘hit’ with a strong passion for making art in my late twenties. It surprised a lot of people who thought they knew me. Hey, I didn’t know myself either. The soul is so unpredictable ;0

7. My signs, in case you were wondering: Virgo, Sheep and Flamingo.

My Movie Mind/Το Κινηματογραφικο Μου Μυαλο

Mixed-media collage painting
By Angela Zafiris

My mind is a movie mind and aside from making art and taking photographs I also like to write screenplays .  This side of my creativity is what inspired me to make this collage. I am a very visual person I can see things in my mind that I have never seen before. I see the people, and the places in my mind. I hear the dialogue between the characters; which at times is  funny and other times is sad.  I don’t need the television or a movie theatre to entertain me. It’s all in my mind 🙂

The background is composed of torn images from magazines. I painted the background with orange and blue acrylics. I then added pieces of paper from magazines added a layer of Gesso. After it dried I  painted over the papers with turquoise  acrylic paint and set it to dry. I made an outline of a human profile and I painted it yellow. Then I made a movie projector and painted it yellow as well.
