This weekend didn't go as planned. Not one thing on my list went as planned - thank goodness, and it was just what the slump therapist ordered. My dear friend (and artist) of 42 years made a spur of the moment trip to visit me and we had a blast in the experimental lab! What fun we had trying out all sorts of techniques and experiments with our materials, and our only regret was the speed at which the time flew by. Mostly, we played with colored pencil, solvents, layering, and mixed media, and I resurrected trashed paintings from long ago for use as guinea pigs.
This has been a long slump, but I'm slowly shaking it off, and I can thank not only fun moments of exploration and experimentation, but my good friends who are always there to lend support, advice, and good times.
