Did you make any new year resolutions that you might care to share? My only resolution is to try and be more organised and to declutter my life as much as possible. My craft room is a case in point it is bulging at the seams with 'stuff'.
This year I am going to be concentrating on two projects. Firstly Lifebook which has been created by Tamara Laporte of Willowing (Ning) fame. Lifebook is basically an exploration of self through art. It is to honour all that we are and all that we dream of being. During January we will be looking at all our positive qualities, our Goddess qualities as Tam calls them, in order to create a piece of art honouring all that we appreciate about ourselves. We will be working with other teachers besides Tam, one of them is Adrianna Almanza (Ady) one of my favourite artists (ever) and I'm so looking forward to her class and drawing more of her big eyed dolly girls. This is the artwork I created from Tam's first class.
The other project I'm working on this year is a Postcard Challenge created by Darcy. This is also based on a book format. We choose two fictitious people/beings from different places and create postcards sent to/from each other and accompany it with some art created on the postcards. I'm not sure I've fully grasped the concept myself yet and Darcy explains it in a far more eloquent fashion so if you would like to find out more about either of these classes please click on the buttons to the right of this blog. This is the book of postcards I have created for this project.
The quote on the front cover is by D H Lawrence and reads "“When we get out of the glass bottles of our ego,and when we escape like squirrels turning in thecages of our personalityand get into the forests again,we shall shiver with cold and frightbut things will happen to usso that we don't know ourselves.Cool, unlying life will rush in."
