What I See When I Stop and Look
Mixed Media on Moleskine Paper, 5x8"
I am running behind myself. So sorry if anyone was waiting for this post.
As I pointed out in an earlier post, I have been kind of funking, but I keep going. It just seems a little harder to keep things going sometimes.
To combat my funk, one day this weekend, I thought about the May prompt of "nature" for Creative Everyday, and when Jess Gonacha on Pecanoot suggested we let go of our stones, I pretty much dropped my to do list and my anxiety and took my maya*made portable art studio out into the garden and just drew something pretty... without worrying about meaning or choosing the right thing or inspiration. I just did. And I had a beer while the kids napped.
It's Pitt artist pens and watercolor pencils and a rollerball pen and a titch of acrylic when I needed some light in there. It reminds me of a Van Gogh I once reproduced in college art class. And it also reminds me of a teal oriental patterned comforter I had when I was little. I don't know why, but it's comforting.
Just so you know, this is my grapefruit tree. The one that furnishes yummy pink fruits all winter long which make a great addition to margaritas. :) Or you know, healthy snacks which you can then sketch when you are through with them.
Another reason I am late posting is that I was working on the painting prompted by my Inspire Me Prompt give away. I haven't quite finished it. But it's there. And I know who the winner is.
Actually, it's two winners. One painting, but both prompts fed into the inspiration... so I've decided that TWO of you creative maestras will be receiving prints. Yay!
You must wait in anticipation a little bit longer, though. I want to finish this painting.
I'm a little devil, ain't I?
PS Thanks Maureen
