This morning, still coughing and sniffling (but feeling a little better), I did something I haven't done in a long time. I covered a canvas with beautiful papers, later to be painted over, painted on and hopefully showing through a little at the end.
I had almost forgotten how much I enjoy that process of preparing a canvas with papers and texture.
While I love the classes I am taking and am learning so much from the professors and the students, what I still love most of all is making my own art in my own little studio.
Right now I don't have the piece of mind to make much art nor will I have much time for it before the end of the year, but my head is filled with ideas and slowly and surely they will make their way onto canvas, paper or even copper plates...
