Where does artistic intuition come from - you know - the ability to just make it look "right"? ....Where was my artistic intuition when I was in high school (as attested by this masterpiece OMG). Not sure if it was something to do with it being the 1970's or me just not having any sense of dimension (truly, it is a rather sad tea pot don't you think?).
BackgroundI have to say though the past few years I have improved. I looked through my blog the other night and could see the progression.
Little bit of SewingI have to give a lot ( I mean A LOT) of credit to my online peeps (Jo, Lenna, Leslie, Beth, Carol to name a few) who have inspired me along the way. Every time I see things they've done or receive a piece of their art through the mail I think "I've got to try that!"...
Paint and StampingMy most recent piece is for someone I have not swapped with before. Andria has a cool site which has also been a source of inspiration for me (like the little booklet I made).
Another postage stamp person - I actually get a real kick out of the look on her face - you can just see her mind whirring away about the dude she is dancing with LOL. They are actually doing the Conga (so you can guess what Gloria Estefan song I was humming when I created this).
UPDATE: Sadly my original couple did not make it to Andria (I've been having some bad luck with that sort of thing lately for some reason) hence the One that never Made It - but I was BOUND AND DETERMINED to get one to her! Fortunately I had most of the same papers in my stash with the exception of the original stamp so I was able to recreate. AND this time it made it LOL and PHEW! Enjoy. Jewels
