Not in a creative frame of mind - for a whole week!! Worrying about a lot of small, silly stuff. I knew I shouldn't go there - but I did anyway. Worry and art don't mix - you probably know that yourself. This morning I played. That's the first step to getting back in my studio.Top left was total playtime. I drew a grid of sorts with water soluble pencil onto previously gessoed water color paper. Added map pieces from an old atlas, some other scraps of paper, stenciled a bit and added paint and a whitewash over it. I think this is the beginning of my pirate map (see Mess, Muddle and Fun - previous post). Top right is a fairly freeform doodle from Diana Trout's 21 Secrets class - used this as a base for Dina Wakely's intuitive layers technique. We'll see where this goes. Bottom left is a painting of flowers I did in bright colors with my fingers and then added lines with a Micron pen. I messed up part of it so I cut it into pieces and I think I see this as part of a birthday card for a friend. I feel so much better - even though I do have laundry to put away (LOL). This is it for today - glad to be back.
