Self drawn

Just a little line drawing to amuse the muse…

Watercolor, marker and pencil on paper

During the creative process  sometime I don’t know what I will create this time I started with a blank page penciling a few random lines letting the image appear and just go for it.

Where the wind will take me

It felt like I was adrift at sea too long, encountered many storms along the way, but the journey has been a thrill. The weather has changed, now my course is set,  I will hang on for a bit longer and enjoy the view.

My illustrated life set up-  Background: acrylic on canvas. Small sailboat and my mini me: watercolor, pen on paper

Blocks tumble

The process of cleaning and organizing my art space helped to unearth inspiration from previously created drawings. The dust cleared and the wheels began to turn, and the urge to work on multiple projects began. My creative blocks tumbled and crumbled in an instant…. I envision more cleaning in my future!

Reused material and art: Cardboard cover of book, pen sketch, puffed paint, clear matte medium and a bit of dust!

A reminder

Crazy days, we work hard to keep balance only to feel like a juggling fool…..

Stop clowning around and go with the flow!

The page is my friend

I try to uphold to a morning routine by carving out time for myself before the hectic throws of the day. My commitment to writing three long hand pages (morning pages) began many years ago when I read the book, The Artist Way, by Julia Cameron. The routine of writing everyday clears the mind, relieves stress and allows you to tap into your well of creativity on a regular basis.  My writing this morning inspired this doodle.

My sketch book, pencil, pen on paper.
