When it gets quiet here…

It means life has ramped up behind the scenes. Sometimes good. Sometimes less so. A little bit of both this time. I’ve spent the past two months furiously working to meet each weeks deadline to get a lesson up in time for my online class. I’ve learned a LOT in the process! Nothing like a forced deadline to get my rear in gear!

One of the things I learned was that every once in a while my squirrel brain had to have break from the intense focus – just to play. I was setting up a photo shoot to illustrate one of the exercises for the online class (remember the scissors-to-abstract-art challenge a while ago?) and got a little carried away. I hope you enjoy the results.

 

how it’s made video: heart nouveau celtic knot

Thought you might enjoy seeking the process of knot making. Be warned – it’s a bit messy. I never know exactly where I’m going to end up when I start drafting a celtic knot. It might end up simple or complex. Sometimes it doesn’t work at all. A LOT of erasing happens. That is all simply part of the process. If you’ve ever been in a class with me you’ve heard me say “you’ve got to make a lot of bad art to get to the good stuff!”
