I must admit to not having many of my own ideas these past few months, at least not creative ones. So I've had to borrow from others. Someone I'm inspired by is Lynne Hoppe. You need to check out her blog it is full of wonderful water colors, words of wisdom, and great quotes. Something I saw her do was paint on old book pages, so I decided to try it and I love it. Every night this week when I've come home from work, I've sat down and painted a little lady on an old yellowed page. It is amazing how everything but the process takes over, it becomes rather meditative for me-daily frustrations disappear and all I'm concerned with is the play of the paint on the page. I love the look of water colors but was always afraid to try them thinking one needed to "know" how to paint to use them. I have no idea how to use them, but I'm making a delightful mess of my water color palette, making silly paintings, and getting lost in the process. I think that is what it is all about.
