Inner Excavation

There are times, as you may well know, when just the right inspiration comes along, at the right moment, and your creativity awakens after a long, much needed rest.  That has definitely been the case for me in the last five weeks.  I stumbled upon this free read-along with Liz Lamoreux and her book “inner excavation”.  Our read-along is in week 6 (of a total of 7 weeks), but her book is so full of inspiration that I’m sure I’ll be going back to it frequently.   Be sure to check out her blog. If you like photography, writing, and/or mixed media artwork, please check out her book.  You will not be disappointed.

The artwork you see here is a collage I finished Sunday, a self portrait.  To see the other two pieces I created just click on the Flickr photo-stream box on the right side of this page. (Those of you receiving this by email will need to go to the blog to see the link.)  I got my hands covered with paint and glue…and it felt fabulous!

Its back to my normal part time work schedule this week.  That means there will be more paint on my hands…but I have to make sure I don’t get it on the camera.  

Have a wonderful Monday!
