I have a newly gessoed, blank, 16-inch by 20-inch canvas sitting in my art room, and it begs for adornment. I've stared at it for a few days now, and have decided to pursue inspiration. I've culled through papers and cut-out magazine pieces. I've sketched. Here are some results of my play:
As well, I continue to brainstorm for a blog post I've committed to write, musing and mind mapping.
I realized I was not giving myself credit for creating while involved in these pursuits. Sometimes I forget that creating isn't just product. It's process. And sometimes--maybe even most times--process is the best part!
