Joy! April 6, 2015
Final week of my MATS course!! Week 5!!! It’s been a wonderful journey…joyful to the core…a whole lot of sketching, thinking, deep breathing, meditating and creating!! Oh! What a wonderful journey! Thanks Lilla Rogers for everything!! Most of all thanks for being our Fairy Art Mother 🙂
We were told to click pictures of some of our ‘collections’, be it pebbles, shells, feathers…whatever. It was a fun exercise! A trip down the memory lane…I remember collecting feathers as a kid, then there was a time when my dear uncle gifted me his stamp collection, and I happily build on it. And now I collect accessories, cones, pebbles, candles and books and of course memories!!! Oh, just realized I am quite a collector 🙂 Infact while laying out the pieces on a blank sheet of paper, arranging each bit by bit, it did feel empowering, felt like an archaeologist!
By day 3 I had no clue how I would fit in any of my collection set into the assignment. So I just waited. It helped to doodle a bit, to get back into my zone…and get my mojo back!
So I created two pieces…as always I was totally confused as to what to submit, as the deadline was close and I kept wondering, I asked Tejjas for help…its so nice to have an artist son after all!!
Somewhere in the middle, I had my AHA moment…I have always enjoyed creating colorful blobs and spatters in Photoshop and recently I started doodling a lot, perhaps combining the two is what I need to do…perhaps…have I found my style? Maybe!! I am still exploring…discovering…collecting!
