Beautiful Messes


SouleMama recently posted that: “one person’s mess is another’s work in progress.”

I could not agree more. I might also add that the chaos of creative works in progress can be art in itself.

Every one of the above photographs is of a “mess” that is currently in my home. Some people might be stressed out by that fact, but I see inspiration, innovation, and artistry in these scenes. Sure, they’ll be cleaned up, but something moved me to photograph them first.

There is beauty in the creative mess.
