A is for Art

 


After reading the new rules for ABC Wednesday, I pretty much knew I wanted this one to be my A is for... Art post for today. A is for Art. Yeah! I need to be doing more art so maybe this will motivate me as well as other artistic souls out there in blog land. Ironically or serendiptiously there is an Artist guild meeting tomorrow night which I plan to attend. I hope to meet more artists and learn from them. I plan to take only one piece of art with me when I go this time. The one I did of the blue lady butterfly I created on the 4th of July. Although my friend Cheryl said I should take whatever I want to take with me. She has been trying to build up my confidence in myself lately and I am grateful.

It is my strong hope that this photo will inspire your art today. Lately I have been doodling again on my desk pad at work, adding things daily. So far I have a really L-O-N-G, black centipede I made with the help of an unsharpened pencil for the circles. Centipede is one of my favorite all time video games) and I have a flag pattern going on from a stamp that isn't stamping like it did when I first bought it. I haven't used it in awhile. I have a pen that stamps a blue wavey line sort of like a running stitch which I also used because I cleaned out my messy desk drawer and re-discovered it. Love it when that happens. It reminds me of quilt patterns when used as a connection. Another favorite thing of mine is creating patchwork quilt art with paper as the medium and turning them into collages. What is your favorite type or piece of art?

I really like your art. It has been awhile since I have painted/rubberstamped/scrapbooked/beaded, or any other art but photography. You have inspired me to get back in the swing of things.

Well, Kim, I am so glad I could inspire you!

Thanks for your visit to mine.

Great post for today...and your art as well makes it more special. Yes, confidence in doing art & putting it 'out there' is very difficult isn't it?
