I realize that most people are probably using this interpretation of this week's I-Fri topic. (I even have a design I created last year for a friend's Spring-themed baby shower, see left.) I thought I would try to use "spring" as a verb; I even have some pretty good sketches. Alas, the bluebonnets are popping up, warm breezes are blowing gustily, and the shorts and sandals have emerged from their hibernation.
It is spring time in Texas, and the thing I want to do most is lie down in the sunshine and just be. *sigh* I'm afraid I have an early case of summer-itis and am counting down the end of school already! I'm putting on a good front, however. (Ever the conscientous teacher-that's me!)
Here's the latest in my experimentations. A boy doing what I wish I could...napping in the sun. I'm having a lot of fun with my latest creations. I've tried to forget about making 'good portfolio pieces' and am trying to just keep creating. The pieces I've done in the last three weeks don't resemble anything in my portfolio, not even by a mile, but that can be good. I'm stretching my artistic muscles, and risk-taking. I'm not over-analyzing, just letting whatever is in my head come out. I am having a great time. Plus, with this new "thing", whatever it is, I don't have to try to be perfect. It's very comforting.
