38 – Spirit in the Woods

Spirit in the Woods

I took longer than anticipated on this one.  I’m ambivalent about the results.  It doesn’t have the feeling of satisfaction my other pieces have for me.  I think the concept has potential and I wasn’t able to take to a place where it feels okay for me.   On the other hand I had good practice working with layers in Photoshop and found a nice effect that smooths out the lines.  It was fun that way, but frustrating too.  I am now reluctantly sharing. 🙂 I had to remind myself that in the end this blog is about recording my journey in art this year, and all paths have stages where things do not go as we want them to.  And that is okay.  My sister in law (a multitalented woman) and her son call these moments Beautiful Oops.  So, here it is, my beautiful oop.

Mini Fund RaiserThank you for stopping by, also if you can, please visit my Mini Fund Raiser post.  I am trying to raise $200 to buy the awesome Wacom Bamboo Create Pen and Touch Tablet (CTH670). This will help me move my art forward. Thank you!

If you like any of my pieces and want to buy them you will find them as mousepads, cards, journals and prints in my imagekind or cafepress stores.  If you like them but do not want to buy them, please know I would still love  for you to comment, like them and/or share them!

If my blog resonates with you and you know other people who would find it interesting, practical, fun or inspiring, please share it with them using any or all of the fancy sharing buttons below. Sharing is the only way my writing and art will reach new readers. Thank you!
