I told you about my paper indulgences–art books. I received a book in the mail that is, well, sort of priceless. It is kind of a color by numbers without the numbers or paint kits. Abstracts in Acrylics [With Tracings] By Dani Humberstone ( 2011 ). It comes with tracings of the artist/author’s abstract work along with step by step instructions on how to recreate her work. This is a perfect example of my magpie ways. I am attracted to the colorful and shiny and vibrant. And, I don’t always pay attention to the details. In this case, I fell in love with the color in the sample pages and had no idea what I was getting. This will be a FANTASTIC way to to ease myself out of a future art rut. Fun. I have a funny feeling about this one.
Find a happy place. Go there. And, go often.
