colored pencil, pastel pencil, markers
have you joined the coloring book craze?
i was given a coloring book. i did not think
that i would enjoy it as much as i do.
i do not find it mindless as many others do.
it allows options such as selecting a color palate,
whether to stay within the lines or whether to color or not
... and quiets the mental chatter.
i like it a lot.
i have been trying my hand at pastels.
here are my attempts. gulp. there is definitely
a steep learning curve! one thing i discovered
after asking around is that it is possible to 'erase'
using a stiff bristle brush.
i would like to share a few photos for your
enjoyment from the spectacular
collection and architecture
of the new broad museum,
downtown los angeles
while i do not pretend to understand much of
contemporary art, i do appreciate the artistic and
creative expression of the artist.
originality doesn't mean making something
that's completely new;
nothing is completely new.
originality means bending and shaping
what's come before until it belongs
i am especially thankful for your visit
today during this busy holiday season
