A work in progress. I try to draw a little portrait everyday for this FB Gritty Jane's 40 Portrait challenge. (Most of these measure 4x6.) I've missed a few days - life does get in the way sometimes...sigh...
I joined a group on Face Book called Gritty Jane's 40 Portraits. Just what I need - another challenge! Actually, it is good for me. I'm drafting a much larger piece for a quilt. These little drawings are good warm up for me.
Week 2 of Life Book 2014 is led by Micki Wilde. We are to create a page with a happy affirmation regarding our expectations for the upcoming year.
I'm totally in the "zone" in my studio. Normally, we take care of everyone else first, but not so in my studio. That's my place and I come first! It is so nice to indulge my creative side this way - no worries - no fears - just get my hands dirty and enjoy the process.
Week 1 of Life Book 2014 is led by Tamara Laporte. We are to create our own Inner Artist Guardian to guide us through the upcoming year. I chose to make two versions. One a full size page on water color paper for my Life Book Journal and a small 4x4 canvas. The little canvas will sit on a shelf in my studio and offer encouragement throughout the year.
The word "begin" is my word of choice for the year. At Mass yesterday, the last song sung was "Let There Be Peace on Earth." I love that tune. I was thinking about beginning Life Book and thought "BEGIN" that's a perfect word!
My husband, Richard, is truly a good sport. I was messing around with my camera and asked him to help me with a selfie. We were mugging for the camera having a great old time. We started out the New Year with a laugh. I hope you did too!
