Art on the go . . .
This past week was a good week. Jim is getting stronger and color is beginning to return to my world. I can't tell you how much I've missed color! Have you noticed that most doctor's offices, hospital rooms and institutions are either gray . . . a color that I abhor, or beige . . . so very non-committal?!?
That being said . . . this week I took a little time to put a small art kit together. Nothing spectacular . . . just a few items from my studio that could fit into a Ziploc bag that I can leave in my husband's closet. I chose a tiny watercolor travel kit, watercolor crayons, a small set of brush pens, water brushes (one large and one small), some 4"x6" index cards, a plastic water dish (a recycled plastic top from a very large fabric softener bottle) and a fine-point black Sharpie.
It feels good to play again, and it's amazing how a few, basic art supplies have cheered me up. It's just a little "Chick-let" , some doodles and a few backgrounds, but it's a start - my creative soul is smiling again!
May your day be blessed with time to play!
