the weekend is here

Posted on Aug 11, 2017 | No Comments

what are your plans? i’m working tomorrow – local town lobsterfest.  but, i’m going to keep sunday open for some art time by the water. this will be the third week in a row. i explore some ideas, usually with oil pastels, and then use them as inspiration during the work week.

rocks seem to be a theme, plus the colorful seaweed floating around them – moving, lazily waving back and forth as the tide changes. there’s a rhythmic peace, and i neglect to notice the passage of time. i ran a bit over last week. a bad thing? not sure!

there will also be knitting. i continue to work on a pair or two of mittens each month, but lately i’ve been whipping up some hats for kids. have a great weekend! xo

oil pastels, tortillions, stumps and a palette knife. i can’t seem to move away from these four things right now.

lots of small sketches on paper. after a daily 4″ x 4″ paint exercise each day for 100 days straight, i find i still practice daily. i said i wanted to get away from small images, but find i keep going back to them. most recently this practice has given me ideas of some larger images i want to create.

more to come…

roots.

holding some of my dearest people in my heart. in the quiet i say their names.

in the quiet i move paint around, my hands work yarn together, and there is comfort in the repetition. hold fast, friends.
