This week has been a bit topsy turvy.
A stomach bug, a mouse in the house, a hospital trip, 2 drs. visits, a couple of snow days and a birthday.
I am hoping we are back to "normal". And thankfully the mouse has been caught!
I know those things aren't inspiring but this post from Wini of ARTLOVEJOY was. She did a great post on Kim Parker. I believe I have heard of her but not to this extent. She has a book for 2 bucks!! So I had to get it of course! She sparked something in me. Maybe it is her dealings in textiles, her color sense, her loose and beautiful flowers. Maybe it was all of that and more. She got me excited. So I ordered some paint. Acrylic. I have some but not enough and mine are very old. It has been so long since I painted in acrylics. I started with acrylics way back in high school and I can't wait to try again. I am having trying to decide if I want to just buy a pre-made canvas or stretch my own. I really enjoy stretching my own and I think it is more economical then pre-made canvases. So I think I will order the gesso, stretcher bars and canvas. I am going to create a piece for our home.
The photo above is a page from my ART BOOK. It is just a bit of play with stamping with erasers using gouache and ink. Be back soon!
