It was a beautiful day .. I took to the roads .. you’ve often heard me say how I love driving the highway, headed out of the city core. The stretch of roads I take have a lot of country side along the way. It is a way for me to unwind.
I’ve undertaken the huge task of clearing my work table, and letting go of the bits and pieces that seem to get left behind after each and every project. I think that last over-haul was perhaps last fall when I was working on the greeting cards for the church.
As an artist it is easy to get lax, I find that I need to challenge myself to step outside the box, much like with my writing. I can get very motivated, the ideas spring endlessly past my gray cells, yet I’m not smitten enough to take action. Then out of nowhere, I know the time is right. Since last week, I’ve noticed a lot “gemstone” colours, spring colours mainly, I’m rather excited to see what is around the corner.
I got knitting needles today, I’m not keen on knitting, but I found myself looking at square in the Michael’s’ store, they ask for donations of 9″ squares, they are put together to make colourful blankets for one of their charities. Who knows. I do know how to knit, it just doesn’t appeal to me.
