First off, Happy Mother’s Day to all the mums and caregivers alike. I hope you had a special day with your loved ones.
Well, I’ve finished off a piece… I think. Hard to say. I always find more work to do every time I stand back and look…
This is mainly ink with some coloured pencil…and it’s been through the ol’ Photoshop. I can’t say I’m overly satisfied with this piece…and so that’s probably why it’s gone to Photoshop. Now I enjoy it a bit more.
Also, I’ve noticed I haven’t been taking that great (quality) of pictures lately. Sorry. I’ve been using my iPhone mostly. Not the greatest.
Anyhow! I think it’s funny how a thousand other ideas you want to try enter into your mind as you’re working, but because you’re so focused on this one thing, you forget half of them. I guess in some ways the work is really a meditation. They say your best ideas come when you’re most relaxed (like laying down or in the shower) so I’m not surprised. The mind is focused in a very unfocused way during the creative process.
Can you imagine if your mind had a recorder that recorded all the other thoughts that pass through your mind as you’re creating? And you could play them back later. I suppose you could always write them down quickly as they come to you, but then you’d never actually get anything done.
In other “news”… work tomorrow. I’ve been off for a month. Hard to believe. Going off for 5 days…. wondering which art supplies to pack in my little suitcase. HA!

Well, here it is..
