What are you doing today?
I have been hit by a creativity bug so I embark on a new journey to explore other mediums to tell a story. I will temporarily put down my pencil to pick up a paint brush and scissors, running with a moment, a seasonal breeze to carry me along. Not sure how I’m feeling, a trace of electricity flowing through my body, though there is a general direction I am heading towards.
I feel white
like a new sheet of 140 lb paper
clean and fresh.
Brush strokes tickle like a feather.
The first step is to assemble the materials:
Last Tuesday I drew the Ancient Etruscan bronze horse from a photograph with chalk pastels. I love the simple, clean lines. I had no idea until this morning what to do with him and decided to incorporate a found magazine image, old US postage stamps, a silk leaf and cut out cotton paper to form a story. Most of my images were some where in the house. I admit I had tremendous fun scouring through my studio (aka quilt, scrapbook and craft room).

I confess I am artistically challenged in drawing and painting with no formal training and I encourage you to try. I have a Pinterest board you can follow with lots of sparks to get yourself started.
Having fun, J
