I don’t have anything finished to post knitterlywise, but have high hopes that by the time the clock shows 12 midnight tonight, I will. I made a crucial mistake this morning. I stalked did some research on Zauerball Sock Yarn online and, well, we all know how this movie ends, don’t we? I’ve been knitting gray for way too long. I NEED COLOR!!!!! Thus the push for gray to be over and done with.
SOMETHING IS FISHY
I’ve been seeing fish everywhere these last few days, maybe due in part to the trip to PetSmart last week with Bigmommy, the Papoose and the Sprout to purchase some fishy stuff for their new aquarium, after winning a goldfish at the Stuttgart Carnival, which promptly went belly up. All this leads up to this new mixed media project –
Acrylic background, handcarved stamps, ink, gel pen, painters tape and bookpaper
I had absolutely no plan when I started this one, other than “I wonder what mixing a bit of black and blue iridescent paint and pouncing it on would look like?”
I love the way it turned out!
As an aside, I’ve been told that I have an “intuitive style”. Having no clue what that means, I googled it and this is what I learned:
Intuitive painting is a creative practice that releases impulses usually corralled by the logical part of the brain to make a work of art. People who use this technique employ their intuition to paint automatically without stopping to plan for the outcome of the piece. Some practitioners like Chris Zydel, who leads workshops on intuitive painting, believe it is a spiritual experience that can help free the mind and heal the soul.
Interesting. I’ve always called it flying by the seat of my pants. 🚀✈️🚁😋
