Art is a Way...

A.R.T.  Do ya see it....do ya????


I've recently falled in love in that forever kind of way with Elsa Mora.  She is one of those artists I aspire to be....just so talented in all areas, yet with a sharing, caring spirit.  I can't do much about the multi-disciplinary talent (I simply can't draw or paint in any respresentational manner), but I can open myself up to being more caring, sharing, etc.  Btw, I'm trying to figure out a way to swing her paper cutting class....so divine.

She founded a project, Art is a Way, with the idea that:
Each one of us is unique, therefore, each one of us has the power to do something unique, not only in art, but in all areas of life.
You'll have to read her blog to understand more of all of this, but for some reason it has profoundly affected me.   I've been working so hard on preparing my Craftcast presentation, and through building it have fallen in love with my dresses again.  I think I shall prepare a little dress vignette to meet the Art is a Way guidelines.  It just makes me happy.

I'm feeling so inspired at the moment.  The next 10 days brings completing a custom order, a short vacation, the live airing of my Craftcast, then..........creation!

I also jotted this down...

The birdies were nestled all snug in their beds.... This one's
just begging to be made.

I've had it in my mind for quite a while that I need to crochet 30g fine silver wire to make some comfy dresses and bags for my little souls (ok...so they are headless, but I still think of them as beings).   Stay tuned.

Special thanks to Vickie Hallmark for bringing Paper 53 to my attention.  As I mentioned, I don't draw, but I love this app, and it makes me feel like I can:)  At least, the sketches come out like I envision them in my mind, and help me to see new details that I might incorporate into the completed vignettes.
