Creation Frenzy

I’ve been creating like a mad woman today. Participating in two art thingies. First I made four letters for Milliande's “A-Z Art Journal Lettering Collaboration”! this morning. I was frenzied with creativity. Whoo hoo! Then I tried to do a digital collage for Inspire Me Thursday but nothing seemed to work. So I got out the painting that I was angry at. The one that made me stop creating all together! And I covered it with gesso! Now I have a painting I’m proud of! I know it could be a lot better, I have a lot to learn but it’s the best I can do at this point. It is the best I’ve done so far! It’s more like a journal page than a real painting but what the h*!!, art is suppose to be freeing and fun and that’s what I had! I’m even thinking of scanning it and putting it on etsy. Wonder if anyone would like it. maybe not but I’m at least getting better. Yep,this is better ;)



My son didn’t have base ball practice today so we were headed for an empty afternoon where I would be sure to hear, “m o m, I’m b o r e d!” all afternoon. So I had made my mind up that I would have him paint with me. he pulls up a chair to my antique school desk and we create. Never did he say he was bored!



He informed me that his painting was good enough to sell! :) any takers?? He knows I’m going to try to make a little through etsy, that’s my goal. So he decided he would pitch in and help bring in money for the family! Ain’t that sweet?

  1. I think it's wonderful that you are inspired. The worst thing for a creative and artistic person is to stop altogether. Your son sounds like a wonderful kid. I was reading your previous posts and I can relate.

  3. Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your nice comments. I saw your "co-creator" comment on your bio. Are you familiar with the books of Barbara Marx Hubbard? You'd really love "Conscious Evolution."

  4. Both pieces are wonerful. You and your son should sit and create art together more often if this is the result!

  7. Thanks so much for visiting my blog. Your comments were truly appreciated.

    It's wonderful to create with your kids. My house was always called "camp Karen". My kids are in their 20's now and they look back on that time together fondly.
