I finished the Ampersand swap project and, as often happens with art, it did not end the way I thought it would. I present Cheese & Crackers.
First drops of paint
Often the fear of not knowing what to do or the fear of doing something wrong stops us in our tracks and keeps us from starting. If we can let go of this fear, we open ourselves up to a much larger world of expression – a world where anything is possible.– Flora Bowley, Brave Intuitive Painting I wasn’t sure where to start. I’ve wanted to ‘know how’ to paint
Getting started and going for a swap!
The first project of the year will be a swap! The Sketchbook Project sets up these mini-projects to sign up for during the year outside of their self-titled, main project. The one I signed up for is called ‘The Ampersand Project’
Another Country: Costa Rica
A client of mine was generous – he flew the NY team members to Costa Rica for the holiday party and I even had an extra day for sight-seeing! Saw this pretty little creature at a reserve near the waterfall gardens we visited. Looking forward to going back someday and seeing more of the country for sure!
The Bee’s Knees
I love my little bee! I couldn’t believe it when he landed right there on the bench and stayed there! I’m not sure if what he was doing was cleaning but he was there for a full minute or two and I was able to scoot in pretty close. I’m using a pinhole setting on my camera which is why there is a soft halo effect around him.
Yellow and Fragile
Fall takes hold
At a park in Adamstown, PA fall creeps in, continuing the cycles of nature. This was actually the weekend before Hurricane Sandy hit. It was overcast all weekend and the air was wet but still a beautiful day to be outside.
It’s been a very hectic two weeks in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy but New York is resilient. We have a grasp on the extent of the damage and some is very severe and will take time to repair.
Scarves unraveled and good foundations
Things don’t have to be perfect the first time out and I fight that – I want it to just happen and be right out of the gate. Sometimes I don’t want to keep going because it’s not right the first time but that really never accomplishes anything, does it? You just end up with a bunch of half-assed stuff lying around in your brain and your life, taking up space and niggling at you.
