I'm reading "Your Personal Renaissance," by Diane Dreher. Her suggestions sometimes veer into woo-woo territory, but it's on my to-do list to be a more centered, a more complete me. The current chapter is about adding creativity to my life and I'm kind of full-up right now. I'm at the "Big White Tents" surrounded by amazing artwork every day I'm there and I am a self-supporting artist.
But I do want to try to tackle the art challenges more thoroughly and in various forms and add more art to my life, not just the work-related stuff.
First up, EIM; the word for the week is, "village." I know the reference to the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy and I peeked at some of the other ladies and their work. Cute little buildings in cute little villages. Uh, nope, not working for me.
I just HAD to tackle it this way!
Next would be the Two by Two for the week. My response to the challenge was this collage piece:
I don't know how many solicitations I get every week to spend my money or for credit card applications. So I took some of those goodies the mailman brought and added a moth sticker, as in my wallet has not much more than moths floating out of it. (Nope, didn't win that massive lottery week before last, did you?).
For the Diva, I picked up a string I drew four months ago but did nothing with. This is 100 as a string:
A tad too minimalist, but I think I'm channeling the precepts if not the efforts. I'm going to try re- doing "Nymph," using my Zentangle gift to the world. You can, too, by checking out this post.
In other news, we're almost done the dining room, except for the flooring which we haven't picked out yet. We're moving right along, having ordered up a gas stove and microwave. It's going to mean we're out of a dishwasher for a bit as we're doing a total rearrangement of the kitchen proper.
It's so wonderful to have a plumber in the family. Just so long as he's not a Village People plumber.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Be sure to check out what all those talented folks are doing at those other challenges. Feel free to poke around and try your hand, too, at making some art!
Have a brilliant day!
