The best way to attract creative energy to a new art studio is to invite The Muses to come and play! Luckily my sketch buddies were game to join me and even engage in a Muse-full afternoon of meditation, mixed media art play, writing, and sharing the results! The studio is just big enough for four of us to comfortably work together. No lessons needed for this group of artists who dove in with no reluctance that I could see!
We started with fluid acrylics and inks on a wet surface, squirted, brushed, scraped and rollered on with some gesso for more texture.
Spring has its goblins hidden among the blossoms
Their eyes are on YOU
They float banshee-like on gentle breezes
Fertilizing soil and seeds
Buds with time release nutrients
Blooms with no choice but to burst
Scatter to the ground too soon
Pink and white petal tears stoking passions
Aches of restless hearts
Goblins know all about fleeting beauty and its price.
And here’s a look at the others’ art!
Spring has now got a toehold in my studio, simultaneous with the draw of the spring garden through the windows. A sweet battle to engage with!
Thank you Muses!
