“Shielding,” mixed media acrylic and watercolor on 140 lb. watercolor paper, 9×12.
Flighty artist. Usually used as an insult. I used it that way, rather mildly, when I decided to stop limiting myself to a certain art or craft and just call myself a ‘flighty artist.’ But hey…flighty…flying…able to take flight…I like that. I want to fly in my art and craft. I want to lift myself off the ground. I want to create fearlessly. And at the same time, I need grounding. I’m not a very grounded person in general, and art and craft ground me. They make me stop and look and really SEE and FEEL the physical world around me.
So that’s why I do art and craft. As to why I am putting up this blog, I’m hoping it will help make me accountable, give me a reason to make stuff when I don’t see the point or feel blocked or fearful or just unmotivated. And give me a place to display it and keep track of things, since in my ungroundedness, I tend not to do that.
I mean to post pictures as well as supplies and techniques used and of course, date created.
Well, that’s it for now. Thanks for checking me out!
