The learning of a curious artist

Feel Love

 

Sometimes it feels like there’s so much art and not enough time. I said this before. I realize that some art interests me far more than other art. Guess it’s the story and technique I’m after. Gold Leaf in Mesopotamian art! I want to enjoy art. So I’m reading a little on each piece. If it’s a piece that has my attention, I’ll take a closer look.

I was in a book store the other day. I found a table filled with $5 books. The one filled with fairy tales called me. Yes  magical worlds and motifs.   Sounds like good inspiration for my quotes and poems. There’s something about a world  be it fairy tale or Hogwarts that’s incredible.  I love Hogwarts and the whole good versus evil. I went with the complete plays of William Shakespeare. I love the times of kings, queens and horse carriages. I want to finish reading King Lear and it’ll be better reading.

I got back to the quick draw or 5 minute draw. I love not knowing what will happen or what the piece will look like. I get an idea and go with it. In the end I may have a layout that looked better in my mind BUT, hey it’s practice. It’s going from fear to freedom.

Helping Others

The house is quiet now–good. I guess all books and draws just help me learn in a non- judgemental I can lose myself know thyself kind of way.  Wait… I need to make sure that I keep creating because that’s the best way to learn. I think next will be a great time to look at my old work and choose some favorites…

THINK of all the impossibilities that are possible.
