I'm starting to add insides to the land.
Since the water is all flow-y and curvy, I'm challenging myself to only add straight lines in the land. I like to make rules for myself sometimes. One of my favorite Art Education articles I read during grad school was called "Constraints that Enable." Putting down limits to enable creativity.
Then I'll have to decide how to add color within the straight-line patterns. Stay-tuned.
I didn't have tons of time to work on any drawings this past weekend because of our yard sale.
It was a nice time to make some cash-money, hang out with friends, and meet neighbors.
And no, our dogs were not our only customers.
To close, I just heard of and bought a Sylvan Esso album. They're fun, makes you wanna dance around a little. Like here.
And if I still have your attention, here's another (there is explicit language in this one, FYI, in case your little ones are present). And notice the guy playing the wine bottle as a musical instrument (and her awesome shoes, which I believe are also in the previous video).
A place to share the process. A space to be honest about the triumphs and trials of my daily life as an artist and mama. Writing motivates and refreshes me.
