Forgive my slowness in posting this week...Blogger is having issues with Windows browser, so I cannot post a photo of my latest work. Hopefully, they will fix this issue quickly...Meanwhile, I will verbally discuss my frustrations with post holidays creativity funks! Or maybe it is just the fact that I haven't seen the sun in weeks. Here in Tennessee we are getting rain, clouds, and grumpy hubbies galore. The new year stretches long before me, the economy is not promising a boost in art sales, and I am searching for my inspiration. I have begun my spring cleaning in the house this week, and decided to get rid of a lot of old craft books...it is there that I found my spark of creativity, my possible enthusiasm, and an inkling of an idea! In a VERY old book on masonry and cement techniques, I found a small article on plaster...which led me to think about frescos, which led me to think about landscapes on frescos! Yes! I think the softness, the diffusion that happens when working on plaster would make for some very zen paintings. I am always looking for new ways to add calm and serenity to my space (mandalas should have worked, but didn't for me). So I am now researching how to do a basic fresco painting on a small scale. You can find inspiration anywhere, I guess...can't wait to start!
