Y2 Art Resolutions: #10-Creatures Flying Fierce

Y2 Art Resolutions is the second year of an evolving resolution to elevate every day by looking at art and creativity as life’s philosophy.

For my money, one of the best returns on American taxes is the public broadcasting system. Routinely, I can tune in PBS and, without overstating, be inspired. If you have never seen Craft in America, take the time to go to the PBS website and watch it–free. Deep, beautiful storytelling. Amazing lives. Both intellectually and creatively exciting. Watching or just listening to it can yank me out of an artistic drought. And, that is part of what has spurred an artistically fruitful weekend. Thank you. Bea, for making the initial introduction.

Again, this morning, I had more ideas about the abstract exercise I talked about in the last post. Butterflies emerged from a session last night. There were different challenges with this piece and I introduced new media–pastels. It is a different pallette and a bit different look.

Nothing compares with the feel of flow.
