Social media has subsumed so much of online communication and sharing -- Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr -- that sometimes I forget about my blogs, which is a shame because the nature of a blog is more intimate. Blogs encourage writing -- duh, it's was all about journaling when blogs first started.
And I've drifted from my artwork -- yes, I'll admit that work and family and other issues pretty much took over my life these past years. I can't remember the last time I picked up a paint brush. But things are changing for me once again. Retirement is coming up and frankly, I cannot wait!
So this morning I decided it was time to begin dabbling again. Because time is short and I wanted to get outside and enjoy my Sunday afternoon before returning to work tomorrow, I decided to play with small digital collages.
It's almost like learning to ride a bike all over again! Lots of 'mistakes' later, I was finally happy with what I did. Time to share!
These little works are all available on my RedBubble site -- greeting cards, prints, mugs, journal books and more. I hope to keep up on these small tidbits until I feel like I'm not such an amateur!
Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.
