Drawing A Blank

Sometimes a pause is good for the soul. Not actively creating art can mean the hardest work on the next piece has begun. (Or so I tell myself.) The process starts before the paintbrush. First to find a goal and mentally discern the connection. A hook that resonates within. Then, how to proceed: assemblage/sculpture or painting?

Like a dog picking up a scent, once found, it's a link you are drawn to follow. With no end in sight. Entertain that thought, or spin off onto something else. You'll know when you've arrived. That's what the wait was all about.

Cindi, I thought you might. If he didn't have a black spot, he'd be perfect for you. (You're safe: he's already been adopted!)

You have showed great perseverance behind the blog. It's been enriched since the beginning. I love to share to with my friends. Carry on.

Delightful! This could be my Bella except she has brown spots. I enjoyed the content of the post too. So often the mulling of ideas is the major part of an artwork. I love the mulling and have to make sure I don't overdo it otherwise the excitement of a new idea loses momentum.

Adorable....being an animal lover I thought....why couldn't you do one that hung on a rug...meaning a taller version that sat on the floor for those who like me won't have another animal because we are away too much but who says we can't have a "resident animal who could stay at home when we are away....our "token pet" ...a little stiff(wood) but LOVED never the less... let me know is such a dog materializes. Thank you for your humour and talent. Karin Lynn
