Cosmos, dragonflies, and nests
I am easily led astray when it comes to creative endeavours. My intention as i pondered my day this morning, was to make a dragonfly or two for my Cosmos piece which I finished binding yesterday. Something to scratch off my list of 'artwork to finish'.--lunch --some sketching to go with my tea The sketching turned into a mixed media conglomeration of ideas and a bit of a mess. Instead of simply sketching the latest blooms from my garden or beach trip inspired seashells that is my norm, I worked with symbols that evoke childhood memories. This is a bit of uncharted territory for me. It seems a good way for me right now to get some things that lurk in the back my consciousness out onto paper and eventually to fiber.
