Old National Geographics again – this was an article about coal pollution in Eastern Europe. Gorgeous photo of a woman in a steam bath. I’ll look up the photo credit and post it here later.
Sometimes when I lack inspiration, I leaf through old National Geographics that I keep around for collage material. I found this orangutan to be an arresting presence.
dreaming of another place
Very tired this evening, so I let a spray bottle and ink do most of the creative work. Acrylic paint to add color and make it pretend to be a picture of something.
summer lake vacation dreams
I spent a long time looking at the blank paper this evening. That’s been happening a lot lately, which sometimes indicates that I need to shift directions. I was too tired to stay up and finish this one to any degree, but it is what I made this day, so it is what I am posting.
The point of this practice was to make sure that I spent time every day doing a thing I love. The daily posts were a way of building in a kind of accountability. They also have served occasionally as a way for me to reflect on what I’m doing. To remind myself of why, and to think about how I might want to continue. I am so pleased and grateful when people let me know that they look at my posts, whether or not they respond in writing. I always hope that what I’m doing here might encourage you to play in whatever way inspires you, whenever you are able.
