Who is doing this?

I don’t think I have this consistently done creative stuff every day for this long. (What a sentence!) It’s probably not true. However, I feel like a feather on the wind. Just floating effortlessly, doing this stuff. Having a good time. Not watching television.

I painted the color blocks last night before I went to bed. Waiting long enough for the paint to dry is something I have rarely been able to do. My Aries nature kicks in and I get impatient. I want to see “it” done and I muck it up in the process. This time I am in the process and the process includes waiting to allow something to dry.

Here, then , in my journal entry for today...

Materials used: Cheap-o (not a brand, just cheap, crap) craft paints. Graphite pencil. 2 rubber stamps: “shadow” or block stamp and feather stamp. Lettuce Adirondack ink and Sea Grass Sea Shells ink by Ranger. A text snip from a magazine. Brown Sharpie marker. On black journal paper.

Yes, who IS doing this? A fabulous question. Happy to learn that you are floating on the wind with this, Crow. I'm so excited as I watch you discover/experience your process. One's work leads to one's work. In art we trust.

hey gb!

Thanks for dropping by. Knowing someone is looking makes so much difference, you know?

I also did a piece on a business sized manila envelope but it is too large to scan the whole thing so I can't post it. (Maybe I'll try joining the pieces together in a graphics program. Too bad I don't have PhotoShop!)

Specific comments and suggestions on art/words always welcome!
