Third exercise for the group. This one involved using skeleton shapes on white background instead of black. Interesting to do. At first the white background seemed so stark and I know many of us would have preferred to use a color or black. Again, these exercises are to push us out of our comfort zones, make us "PLAY" . I have to say once I let go of trying to organize and control the shapes they seemed to take on a life of their own.
I wonder how many times that happens in the studio when I think I have this great idea for a project and I push and push and it doesn't seem to want to happen. When I let go, throw down the paint brush then the ideas seem to flow. I do get in my own way a lot.
Yesterday we had hoarfrost covering everything. That with fog made for an erie wonderland look to my world. I could swear I heard a different bird song in the morning, too. I haven't seen anybody new at the feeders but the bird call sounded more like a spring call. I know that pesky old groundhog didn't see squat yesterday. Actually, the two that were running around our yard last year didn't even surface as far as I can tell. It has been a mild winter so far but it would be nice to know that we would actually have a spring this year.
Have a creative day!
