I love creating art. I love the Creator! And through that love, I find a little slice of heaven on earth and I give Him all the glory! It's a great adventure and I'm excited to see what's around the bend! Come join me, won't you?

walking the line{s} ~

hello lovelies ~ 

i think i've finally begun to realize i don't always enjoy "coloring within the lines" ... and in saying that, i also recognize that it was one of those 'under the radar' suggestions that became "the rule" i remember growing up with from early childhood when our main art tools were coloring books and crayons.

it's time to break some of those barriers, and as i've said before here on the blog ~  just because i can! after all this is art.  this is freedom.  it's not like i'm breaking any laws!  

so i continue to "go out... and see what i can see!"

from my large, moleskine 8.5" x 12" journal...  a study {of sorts} ~ in contemporary feather play with watercolors, specifically, the twinkling h20's.







what is it i learn? 

sometimes ~ lines are merely suggestions. 
sometimes ~ lines are fun.  
sometimes ~ it's fun to draw them
other times ~ it's fun to let them draw me in.
sometimes ~ it's fun to just ignore them 

this is art!  there's lots of choices, but none of them...

have. to. box. me. in.

this may make sense {or not} to some of you, whether you quilt, draw, paint, or love art. but this much i know.  it's an exploration of the learning process that i find fresh, fun, and fascinating.  

and i think this little watercolor "feather" study will be fascinating to look back upon, as i ponder how i may want to turn it into thread play...

can't wait to get started on another exploration!  


enJoy!

Creating something beautiful is so restorative and exhilarting - whether with pen, brush, fabric or thread.... your drawings would be lovely in any of these!
