I LOVE Winslow Homer! My very first trip to the Boston Museum of Fine Art was to see the Homer show. That was about 12 years ago! It's all just so beautiful, though. The quote in the corner really pulled me in, too. It really says it all, doesn't it? 'Explore. Dream. Discover.'
And last night while Hubby was making dinner, I put my nose to the grind-stone, and finished the piece I was working on for Dave. I hope it stands up to the mail service!! :)
Anyway, the combination of getting the art, and finally finishing a piece after having finished NOTHING in well over a YEAR! stirred up some creativity, I think. This morning I'm starting another piece to send out to another on the mailing list. I actually woke up this morning excited about what I wanted to do...staying in bed past 5 a.m. is hard for me anyway, but when I'm all giddy about doing something creative...forget about it!!
So, this is going to be normal, I think...
(pardon my gross dry skin)
Kind of gross? Maybe, but if it means I'm getting down and dirty with my inks and other such things, then call me 'gross'. I love having ink on my hands!
As if that wasn't enough, I found this on my blog roll this morning:
A post about a Sumi Society! I have done some in the past and had just pulled out my brushes and ink sticks this morning! I actually had them sitting next to me as I read the post! (Talk about synchronicity, eh Erika!?)
So now I'm off to do something NOT pertaining to my computer!!
Hope everyone has a great day...it's my day off, so I'm already doing pretty good!!
