When folks share, "They don't make it like they use to..."
It is true with many art tools.
I'm very thankful for acid free papers and the longevity they promise~
Museum glass that protects valuable art and prints~
I'm thankful they left the minerals in paints... I promise not to eat mine.
I love hand-worked.
As much as I try to jump into the interesting & exciting tech world~
My heart returns to simple.
A young student looked at me and asked~
"Aren't you afraid of being left behind?"
I love what I do.
Everyday I strive to improve my unique skills~
Try to share a little more of my heart in my work~
There are many artists in the world...
I admire the ones that search their own hearts and render unique.
These little glass gems are fun!
Metal tips have their own look~
When you find the perfect angle, point side etc.~ these pens dance!
Looking through antique/vintage ephemera can be daunting & dusty.
The finds are rewarding!
Old lesson pages are great tools!
Perhaps flourishes and scrolling were the Zentangle of our past?
I love watching people sketch, doodle, zentangle, pattern etc.
One of the most important things I try to teach my students...
Let go of your wrist~
Let your hand move with your mind.
Hope your weekend is filled with creative!
