Sunday Sketches; Abstract Art

Feeling Sad

Sometimes when you put yourself and your artwork out in the world you face rejection, and it's not always easy to except. It's hard not to feel sad. I haven't been creating much art lately feeling rather sorry for myself. So it's time to start moving forward, and painting always makes me feel better. ;)

To cheer myself up I've been taking long walks with my dogs and working abstractly. My goal for the end of the school year is to just have fun! My students are loosening up with Abstraction; Line, Color, Shape, Texture and Pattern. There is no pressure only that they try and have fun, and I'm having fun right along with them.

Minnie Driver
My sketch for today is a controlled scribble mess of my Miniature Schnauzer, Minnie Driver. She's such a sassy little girl that always makes me laugh and smile.  My students thought the bottom of the drawing looked like musical notes. My response to them was "It must be my inter voice telling me to sing out loud while I paint." They weren't too sure about that one. haha .

Have a great day.
