it's funny how light can play tricks on us... how sometimes you could swear you see something out of the corner of your eye... only to do a double take and realize it was "all in your head"... once when i was a little girl... i woke up in the middle of the night and swore i saw a creature at the foot of the bed... to this day i could tell you what it looked like and the panic i felt when seeing it there was very real... my rational mind explains it away easily now- but the emotions attached to that initial startle are still there and are not so easily reconciled away. it's interesting how our heads and hearts are often playing on opposite teams. trying to convince one another of what is really going on.
i spent a good part of today playing with light- and paint
i went to the st. paul art crawl on saturday... there are of course countless numbers of talented artists... but... my favorite "display" was a wall of childrens art done that day at a little table tucked away in the corner of one studio... doodles done in a rush and probably without much thought... likely while their parents were shopping or chatting...
more watercolor sketchings ... practice runs for acrylics to come
