It's FLY monday...



After having the kids home for a week, it's time to get my butt in gear and be productive. (even though all I want to do is watch season 3 of Project Runway and paint...which I may do, but I'll do it while I'm doing some laundry...) And I'm going to try to block out the pounding that is happening from a house being built a block away...you can feel the vibrations every few seconds...not enjoyable.

This painting I'm working on...I need to rough it up. Actually, I want to scan it into my computer and manipulate it from there. Is that still art? I love mixed media, how you can play and paint and smudge and smell, but I also love digital experimenting...the layering, the words. I've been so drawn toward mixed media, collage, and images...I know in a year I'll be able to see how it's all come together, but right now I don't see the whole picture. And I have to be okay with that. Do what you know you need to do now. And that's it. Wonder for a minute, then LIVE the rest of your day. Start somewhere. Jump in. There's a party of art out there, and if you are on this earth, you've already received your invitation.

This is really pretty!!
Art is art no matter what different tools or techniques you use to create it. :)
