Remember the list of intentions I posted on my studio wall a few months ago? There's one phrase in there that always trips me up:
Is balance really a realistic goal? Sometimes I think not...especially for creatives. We tend to hyper-focus, to disappear into "the zone" only to emerge hours, days, or even weeks later exhausted and full to the brim. If we are very blessed, the people in our lives understand our need to go to that place where beauty and truth beg to be expressed. Sometimes they don't understand but love us despite our flightiness and unpredictability. If you're someone who does this for me (and you know who you are) I thank you from the bottom of my ever-lovin' little heart.
I'm still trying to keep up with Sketching My World for March although I am woefully behind. These next few sketches are from last week's spring break. We spent some time in Dallas, where the concrete and architecture stand in stark contrast to my everyday woodsy surroundings. The patio homes where we stayed offered plenty of interesting angles and textures to try to work out on paper.
Some of the angles are a little catawampus...makes me think I should try my hand at cubism. (Or possibly invent my own artistic genre, catawampism???)
Today for my Paint Party Friday friends I'm sharing an intuitive painting in progress. This one is starting to take shape. I can't wait to get back to it!
I hope you have lots of creative fun or maybe some needed rest in store for you this weekend. I look forward to a little of both! Whatever you have planned, enjoy!
