I am such a digital pack-rat!
Being of the more visual sort, I get a real kick out of seeing art in it’s “Work-In-Progress” mode.
Possibly because it hasn’t defined itself totally yet. The piece can be taken in so many directions.
I especially love it when a drawing surprises me!
What is there not to like about the colors in the pics here? Anytime I get to use the whole color spectrum, I’m happy!
Graphite pencils….Ya gotta start somewhere! I must admit, I miss the erasability of graphite.
Desktops! I’m not the neatest person, that’s for sure. I also tend to spread out! If I don’t see it, I forget I have it! Haha
Art journaling in a whimsical way.
Photo-realism…my latest passion!
More graphite work.
More messy desktops.
So, now you can see what I see as I try to bring something into creation. I love it when I have lots of ideas….all lined up in a row…in my head. But that’s not always the case. Art evolves with the person. Something I may have wanted to do one day doesn’t always carry the same weight the next day. What I find important is the doing! The trying to learn new things, to challenge myself with a new picture or new technique. For instance today…I have no interest in painting. But that may change.
I think it’s best to not force yourself to like something you don’t. This is also the beauty of not being in a super-structured environment. I have the freedom to choose what to spend my time learning. With that being said….I can see the flip side of that super-structured environment too! We can gather information/inspiration from other sources in unexpected ways. So really either way…it’s a win-win, if I keep the right attitude.
A penny for your thoughts too! I’d love to hear your take.

- By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser!
