I'm really enjoying having Art Days on Sunday afternoons. Shannon and I were able to wrap up the first Life Book exercise. I had a lot of fun doing it. I've decided to focus on learning skills and having the experience. To do that, I've just decided (at least for now) to follow instructor's instructions and see what happens. I'm already learning a lot about technique and also about myself! Art has a way of doing that.
This is an in-the-middle-of-the-process shot of one of the LifeBook exercises, and it's wild to look at a stage that was only what it was for a few minutes before it became something else. It was wild to work on as I've now really realized I haven't done mixed media that much, and sometimes it's hard to trust and keep working on and changing this after a stage where you already like it, but that's how it works!
I got out with a friend of mine and had a hot chocolate at the Second Cup before going shopping and picking up some crafting supplies. It was a lot of fun except for the fabric store, where I got overwhelmed and just didn't know where to find anything. I can't believe they don't have heavy cotton! Oh well, I got everything else done.
