Blogging Art, Life & Love
I created this painting last night. I was sketching away in my art journal when the idea of a dress form came into my head. I was so anxious to make it...I ran to my studio and started tearing paper, finding vintage buttons & digging in my stacks of ephemera for the 'right' pieces. I was so delighted with the outcome..I almost brought the painting upstairs with me to sit on my bed-stand as I fell asleep! That way I could look at it over and over again...and realize..."Wow...I created that!"
What an amazing week it has been. Busy...but sooo amazing. As I get ready to deliver my third daughter, the creative inspiration just keeps coming. It's crazy. Sleep is hard to obtain as I move closer to my due date. But as I lay awake, I seem to be swimming in a sea of magical creativity. I often have to jump out of bed to jot down an idea, or sketch a new picture that lingers in my memory. I'm not complaining. This journey is awe-inspiring and rich with love and beauty. And...today I was invited to join a new artists community. I have to share! CrescendOH is a plethora of all things art. Are you a quilter? They have classes! Do you take pictures?

I've mentioned before how ideas or images come to me in my sleep and then...my brain won't turn off. I have to write down the ideas or start working on them while I still have the creative fire within me. Last night was no exception. This pregnancy I've been suffering from a pinched nerve in my lower left tail-bone/glut area. It's remarkable and annoying! It also aggravates my sleep. Some nights, after lights out, I lay in bed trying to move as slowly as possible so as not to send shooting pain into my derriere! TMI!! But where there's a cloud, there must be a silver lining. And for me, the silver looks like ideas, visions, creative streaks that strike me as quickly as the pain in my hip! Last night I zoned out imaging framed art. Picture frames. Ornate and simple wooden frames. Things to 'art-upon' as it were. And this morning I had an idea...thrift shop excurision 101!
I am just starting a new small canvas. It's only 8 x 8...but has so much potential. I have used spray-paints on many of my REALLY large canvases (they're great for covering large areas). Cans of sprayed on color, used with stencils, creates an amazing ethereal & abstract quality. But for baby canvas, I chose two colors and decided to make whatever comes into my head.
