I took this photo the other day. I was going to my daughters little flat to tell her something, but I stopped at the door. She had left the door open and being a bit of an artist myself, I realised that she was in the zone. I didn’t want to break the creative energy there…so I quietly just stole a little picture with my cell phone. The writers, artists, poets will most probably nod in agreement and understanding when I talk about being in that particular creative zone…which should not be interrupted.

Nice photo and definitely a moment not to interrupt.
I agree with you about the non interruption 🙂
Wow I’m impressed with her talent… shooosh Mom let her be…
Thanks Bulldog, she’s really quite talented and this picture was really gorgeous when she finished it 🙂
Wonderful photo of a beautiful girl. That butterfly couldn’t have found a lovelier home.
Thank you so much, Bill.
she is very artistic!!!!
She is, thanks Terry 🙂
Perfect for fleeting and she is so very talented. You were wise to not break the zone! I love this!

You have three pieces of art there: your photo, her painting and your daughter. 🙂

That’s a lovey photo of your daughter at work. Love her style. Hugs.
Thanks ad 🙂
Oh my Michelle what a wonderful moment captured. Beautiful…you should frame it xxx
Thank you, Ceri 🙂 I think I will be framing it 🙂
Unfortunatly, half the time I get in the zone,writing wise, I have just laid down for bed. So I keep getting up and run out to make notes as the thoughts come until I finally say enough is enough. I hope ou get your ideas much earlier than bed time!
I do the dame as you, I even wake up in the middle of the night often with the words flowing like crazy…
This is a truly smashing shot: unprepped,and completely natural.
The off the shoulder shirt, the angle of the brush. Even the wall texture and the easel and the light falling on the chair ‘make’ this shot.
It creates a powerful desire to want to see the painter. One wants to ‘turn’ the shot to see the face!
There is balance,poise and best of all, originality. Really, it deserves a frame and a wall. It is worth keeping. Well done M.
Thank you so much, Ark. The minute I saw the scene before me I knew I had to take the picture. I love the picture and the girl in it very much.
She’d love this photo, and your thoughtful gesture. 🙂
Thank you, Imelda 🙂

Excellent photo. I know that “Zone” very well.
Thank you so much, Jeff. I knew there would be quite a few people here on blogs who would understand about the zone 🙂
I’d guess you’re right on that point. We should all get t-shirts with “Artist at work, do not disturb” printed on the back 😉
That is an excellent idea! 🙂
This is beautiful. You should DEFINITELY frame it
Thank you so much, Doran. I will do that.

Oh, c’mon, admit it. You knew that if you interrupted her you’d get your head chewed off right down to your toes, didn’t you? 🙂
lol, no definitly not, Col. She is the sweetest gentlest person ever. 🙂
Hmmm. She needs to work on getting an artistic temperament – and temper! 🙂
She has a temper alright, to match the red hair, but there are only a few things that make her flare up 🙂

Wonderful painting! And she’s so lucky that you understand that – my mum is always talking loudly or turning the volume up on the telly when I’m trying to write. She did that just yesterday and I was SO FRUSTRATED.
It can become very frustrating…you have my sympathy when that happens.
Aww.. Thanks.. Maybe I should let her read what you wrote!
I love your consideration. Many people have NO idea, Hope. Sometimes I feel the need to write and slip into the mode, but then you can count on my siblings, each, all, one at a time, skyping me with that annoying beep. So now I have to put it onto the DARK RED (no interruptions) just in case my muse is nearby. Prevention is better than trying to recapture the magic, lol!
Oh I understand that so well, adee 🙂
I understand ‘The Zone.” That picture is worth a million dollars, and your daughter is fortunate to have such a sensitive mom.
Thank you so much, Naomi 🙂
