I woke up again to the fun of art because Monsieur has given me a whole set of professional wood and linoleum carving tools for Christmas.
It may be just a phase until the nice weather appears …. but I won't question this new enthusiasm since there has been a long dry spell where my heart just wasn't in it.
I thought that I had entirely lost my mojo. … all of the tricks, in fact, of my gris gris bag that I tried to get that enthusiasm back.
So if I don't post for a time on the blog , I am probably working on my "lino" project. I have been experimenting this week with different materials and techniques and carving with my new "gouges". I'll put the results on my art blog. marympayne:art.blogspot.com
Happy New Year to all of my faithful readers. Thank you for your participation this year . And, please, go out and find your gris gris bag this year and cast a spell for enthusiasm…. your own.
That is what I want for each of you, to find that thing that engages you and makes you want to leave the house a mess, so you can go do it.
