A Mess Too

Sometimes art just won't get done without creating a mess too.

Maybe this is why I shy away sometimes. I'm an orderly person most of the time, but after all the time spent listening to art-talk in my classes today, I went ahead and spilled scraps all over my bedroom floor and pulled out scissors, a marker, watercolor palette, paint brush, water cup, and x-acto knife.

I stole the water bottle scrubber from the kitchen too. It's just abrasive enough to scratch up a smooth photograph surface.

...today I'm grateful that going to university classes means making prints, painting, taking photos, talking architecture, and singing songs about Napoleon in French.

You have always had a talent for creating something beautiful from unlikely places & unlikely materials...that will never change. You can gather what is discarded and make it something to be admired.
You go girl! You have my applause.

Welcome back. A very warm welcome back to the blog. I am very excited to read and look at all the other beautiful things you create besides food!
