Art – A Productive Day in September

A Productive September Sunday - 2013

Today in the Pacific Northwest it rained with thunder and lightning so it was a perfect day to stay indoors and create art.  With some upcoming events this fall and winter I wanted to get some ideas and designs down on paper.  I am happy with the results especially since I spilled a bottle of ink all over my art table first thing, even splashing some of the designs.  But I got creative and managed to make something out of the chaos!

“Bare Sheer Opal Whirls Conjuring Vague Alluring Dreams” ~M

The above was created for Free Write Friday using what is called stream of consciousness, no editing, no proofing just creating (usually writing, hence the Free Write Friday, but this week I went a little more visual with micro-poetry because that is what came to mind) from the following Word Bank prompt:

 Opal, Vague, Whirl, Dream, Sheer, Conjure, Bare, Allure !

Images of a new painting that I began on Friday night just playing around with watercolors and inks, but not sure it is finished?

I walked away from it for a while but now am back, what do you think?

So hard sometimes to know when to put down those brushes and just be done!
