This week let's CREATE ART! There is no wrong way to be creative! Immerse your self in what you already love to make or take this prompt as the little push to try something completely new! Then show us!
I admit - I cheated a little bit this week. I had a not so good week, and I tried hard to do something other than work, but it was impossible. You all know I like to make jewelry and I consider that to be my art right now. But I wanted to show you something different too.
Besides trying tons of new things every now and then - I have 2 primal loves (yes, I used primal correctly here, they are truly my basic loves): music and visual arts. I am not very good at either - but I am working very hard at getting better in music (see my post from a couple of days ago); and I have plans to take drawing courses to help me with naturally defining perspective and shades, the 2 things I struggle most with in art.
Where am I getting at? In one of the packages my mom sends me she added a couple of paintings I made almost 24 years ago! I was painting a lot back then - mostly abstract, although I didn't like the genre, but it will not need perspective rules :) These are not abstract, as you'll see in a moment...

P.S. Chewed by the dog :)
Seeing them made me long for those drawing courses! I'm going to look into that right now - luckily for me we have an Art Centre right downtown, and they offer courses for adults (although they seem to cater more for retired adults, they set their lessons weekday mornings... but I will figure something out).
So far Sally's challenge brought lots of good things at the surface, and it has been only 4 weeks! Sally, thank you, again - every week I seem to reach deeper and deeper! This is an exercise I needed =)
Thank you, my friend, for visiting with me today.
Please make sure you continue the Art Gallery tour - the list of "exhibitors" is to be found in the Main Lobby, at Miss Sally's.
