Short sketches and paste painting
Thursday night the kiddo and I went with friends to a poetry and spoken-word-art open mic night at a cafe downtown. I didn't really know what to expect, but we both enjoyed ourselves immensely, and I got to practice my fast sketching skills, which are reeeeeally rusty! Hey Patti and Barb, you would get a kick out of it! Solstice Cafe on Thursday nights.
Friday and Saturday I was laid up with a pinched nerve in my neck. There was no art or anything much other than laying down and taking pain meds. Today I felt so much better I managed to paint some in my journal. This started with modeling paste, and before it was dry I stuck torn up bits of paper towel that I'd used to mop up purple and blue paint a week or so ago into the paste and let it dry there.
I used acrylics over top and just played.
