With all of the extraneous excitement we've had in the past few weeks - including a hurricane, a nor'easter, AND a Holiday - not to mention Jim's doctor's appointments and "general life duties", art has taken a back seat. I did have a smidgen of time to spend in my little art room over the weekend, so I made a conscious decision to "play". Yes . . . . . "Play!" Consequently, I discovered a few new tricks and techniques to maximize my precious studio time.
Since time was of the essence, I used a photocopy of a background that I'd previously created, added a new image and loaded on more "color". Then the fun began . . . . . I started to doodle. Yes . . . . . "doodle"!!! I used a black marker and gave my hand and mind free reign. I drew and played to my heart's content. Scrolls, loops, hearts, swags and daisies spilled out of my pen and onto the page. It was cathartic and, most of all, it was F-U-N!!!
May your day be blessed with "creative joy & fun"!
