just plain air

They call it "plein air"
The more sophisticated art folk

But not feeling very sophisticated art wise these days, where it's all I can do to drag out my paper and paint after having toted them down to the beach in hopes of 
... in hopes of some mojo ...

After 6 weeks of summer, I have 4 little plain paintings. Plus a bit of a tan and many sweet memories with my girls who tagged along.

It is enough.
It is just plain air.

processing

art journaling is great for processing
I usually have no idea what will come out
it's storytelling without talking


One thing is certain:
I ALWAYS feel better after journaling.

morning

It being the first morning in many days 
wherein I do not need to BE SOMEWHERE
I take time to see and play with color
What a reviving activity it is for me

daily

I'm using my new inchies as daily affirmations in preparation for my work days.
These represent Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday of this week.
It's amazing how it has helped me when my confidence gets shaken.

So today, I will remember that I am talented - even if I goof something up :)

fundamentals

An art journal page worth sharing.
We could, all of us, benefit from reflection.



Inchies have all arrived - minus one.
So, Monday looks like the day to post pictures on the blog and mail them out to everyone.

I hope you're having a lovely last 2 days of April

rhubarb can be weird

My rhubarb is about 10 years old
I guess it blooms if you've had it that long
It's hard to tell just how big this is,
 but the "flower bud" is about the size of a fist.
The stalk is about as thick as the bottom part of a baseball bat.
Below all this pompous show of plant reproduction, 
I have some lovely new spring stalks
... hence the pie ...
The only thing I created today - ha!
