Pages In Progress...And A Puppy!
Today's Lesson From The Craft Room: It's A Process
I sometimes look at posts on-line and think that behind the art work was a simple, easy process. That somehow an artist sat down and everything just came to them and out popped the beautiful work of art! Well, maybe that is the case for some people...I know it's not my process - at least not usually. My art often comes out in fits and starts, bits and pieces. I do a little bit, stand up, walk away...maybe walk away for a few minutes, hours, days, weeks, months...and yes, even years. Often I only show my finished work on my blog. Now I'm realizing that may give you the wrong impression. My art doesn't come out completely, easily - it's a process - sometimes a struggle - sometimes an adventure. So today I'm sharing part of my process. Pages from my art journal that are in progress. Some have been under construction longer than others. Some have started to take shape from wiping off excess paint from a brush. I am not sure where any of them are headed....but I do know it is a process - a journey - one that I am happy to take!
