21 March 2013

Yesterday, I began work on a tunnel book. It was during the “watching paint dry” phase that I created this blog.  I’d been meaning to build a site and start blogging for ages, but as I sat there watching the big glops of Modge Podge dry that I asked myself, “Why not now?” I couldn’t come up with a good reason to put it off any longer.  And so, here I sit, blogging.

Last night, I worked on the “About” section of the blog, and I believe in what I said there. I firmly believe that we are surrounded by art every day. It’s an artist’s responsibility to share this with the world, to evoke some sort of response.  Primarily, I work in the visual arts.  As the name of my blog implies, I don’t limit myself to a canvas.  I’m still exploring media and techniques, and I hope that you will as well.

For today’s “inspiration” I thought that I would keep it pretty easy, both for you and for myself.  Since I’ve been walking around with my head in the clouds dreaming about setting up a blog, today’s work is going to focus on “Dreams.”  Whatever concept that word evokes in you, create something that will share it.  Let it take whatever form it will.  I would love to see the results from today’s “inspiration” and will share mine with you…as soon as I stop writing this post and get it done!

But listen to the colour of your dreams.

  1. I’ve completed my Inspiration piece for today. It’s included in an altered book that I am currently working on. I used a combination of spray paint, spackling, watercolors, acrylic paints, charcoal and markers.

    I can’t wait to see more inspiration!

  2. Blogging is a great way to share the inspiration (and it’s addictive) ! Thanks for following.

    • Thank you for the encouraging words! I confess, I checked out your beautiful blog, but since it was zero crazy thirty at the time, I refrained from making any incoherent comments. Rest assured, I will be frequenting your posts as I have an inability to resist beautiful things!
