Creativity: Week 1 2024 - Play...play...play

Week 1: Self Control - Stop! Be calm and relax. (SoulSistersToo - Soulfilled)
Intention Setting: Enjoy each moment of the day. Let go of what you cannot control.

I have an inkling that my recent patchwork paintings and using thread in my artwork is not yet done. Seeds of ideas are forming but not yet concrete for my next series. What I do know is that I would like to;

  • combine paint and textiles
  • explore blue, white and grey
  • explore clouds and pattern and movement 
  • but also explore shapes and irregular patterns. 

And while reflecting upon this in my journal I spied out of the corner of my eye two unfinished acrylic painted canvases. For two years I've been asking them questions:

  • Are you finished yet?
  • Am I truly happy with you?
Then a new question formed. With cotton thread could I add texture, line, something that will make them more? Play...play...play.
