I've been drawn to the colour teal lately.
When I sit to start doing artwork
the bottle of teal paint practically shouts out
for me to pick it up and use it.
So I do and it feels great!

Do you go through a similar process when creating?
Do you find certain art materials begging to be used?
If so, do you follow through with the impulse?

My Witness

I sat down to create
and part of me wanted to leave.
Layers were added,
then taken away
and my process seemed pointless.

"Keep Going"

Quiet the critic
and keep your hands moving,
you don't have to know where this is headed.


My breathing changes and things go quiet.
My hands seem to move on their own.

"I see her"

Out of nowhere she appears
and I help carve her out of the layers.
Her eyes calm me,
she sees me.

My witness.

Our Windows

I've been combining my images with quotes lately.
I find it is a different way of working that shows 
a bit of a glimpse of what the image represents to me.

What do you notice in my image?  What does it make you think of?
