A little art

I did a few atcs today. I have not been in a creative place lately and I never know whether to push through it and create things I don't feel good about or to just set art aside for a while. That is what I chose this time. But, I'm back wanting to give art a whirl now.  I signed up for Claudine Hellmuth's online course which starts July 1 and I'm looking at a paper cutting ( a la Matisse) course locally at Louisville Visual Arts. But, I'd better call tomorrow if I'm going to do it.

Joanne, I think, sent me this cool exotic bird napkin and I got it out a couple of days ago. Today I made these four atcs. I like napkin art a lot for the feel of it and these had so much pattern they didn't require a lot more of me. Easing in, slowly....

Very nice. Love the Gauguin feel of it. I find my creative juices stall every now and again. Sometimes it's just not having enough time to relax and let them come.

I see you used the new Blogger Design tool. Nice job! I think it's so cool that there are so many options that no two look alike. I need to contact them, cause I want more font options and I'l like some between posts design options. So much fun.
