The Writing Life Today’s post for My Creative Inspiration is this painting which I saw on a visit to Cody, Wyoming (USA) last June. This painting which hangs/ hung in the Smithsonian museum there, is a painting of a pioneer woman as she sits in her covered wagon at the beginning of or during her journey. Ever since I first saw this painting, it stopped me in my tracks and I knew it would ‘stay with me’ for a very long time. Inspiring me to move forward in all of my ‘pioneering’ ideas. It would inspire me to follow my dreams, wherever they may lead me and to be creative, whether it is in my quilting or my writing, which is the subject I have decided to write about in this post today.
