watercolor, arches hp, 6x8 EDIT: text in white ink, colored pencil, journal 8.23.07
A small burst of creative juice today that I wanted to share - playing with some watercolors (one of a few supplies not packed away) on some wonderful Arches hot press w/c paper. I think anything created on this paper would look good - seriously! I puddled juicy orange and yellow, then pulled them around & out with my brush and resisted the urge to play too much as 'petals' appeared.
Working at an old (read: small) writing desk has been a challenge for me but in a good way as it's forcing me to tighten things up and focus on the little things, things that spark my eye, ordinary things - like the play of light & shadow here as this piece dried by the window.
I have been feeling consumed by all the organizing and prep for the new phases ushering in so very quickly in my life - it seems that the fall season always brings that about for me, how about you? I guess we can either resist the winds of change or just let go, dancing & twirling like leaves, knowing that we'll end up landing where we're meant to.
Wishing you all much creative juice - and if your cup is full, share a little with someone who needs it :)
Additionally: this piece sparked a new journal for me, loose watercolor pages that I'll bind together when I feel it's complete. all the entries will have watercolor wash backgrounds and text added - either inspiring words or quotes to help me define the moment I'm in.
