This week just about flew by. Monday I go to have my stitches removed. That will be a relief. I have not been sleeping well and still not feeling like myself. I feel kinda lost actually. Maybe its from all the stress and anxiety I have been experiencing lately. Who knows. I hate feeling this way.
Despite all that I was able to create this week and I love this piece. I used watercolor crayons mixed with gesso on watercolor paper along with a black faber castell gelato, black sharpie and a white out pen for the scribbles. I don't know what it is about the scribbling but it has become my favorite thing to incorporate into my abstracts. I really am loving abstract work more than anything else I have tried along this creative journey. And I like using my fingers rather than brushes which is what I did on this one. I think I need to add to my crayon stash with more earthy tones. These are really the only ones I have in my set. I seem to stay away from most of the bright colors at times and need more of a selection.
Tomorrow I will be attending a writing workshop. I have been pretty down lately and not wanting to write at all so I am hoping this will help give me a bit of a jump start. I will post about it and let you know how it goes.
I am sharing this piece over at Paint Party Friday.
