I have been considering the option of not going to ArtFest because I have so much to do at work, in my personal like, etc. My family says ... "No! You must go". And in the last couple of nights of forcing myself into the studio to do these little canvases of butterflies, I realize, I do need to go and enjoy a couple of days of creating art without any disruptions. Fill myself up with ideas, get away and just sit at in one place for hours and think about nothing except the process of creating.
More butterflies, I still have a couple drying downstairs. Finally using all of those envelopes, monopoly money, specialities papers, that I have sitting in sacks all around the studio, and that feels good! I attached threads for the grid on the canvas, and I just loved the flow and randomness of them hanging down and can't cut them off. Tonight I added a couple of single butterflies to them. Still having fun.
