|Meanderings of My Mind. 8" x 10". Inktense and Micron pens on watercolor paper.|
This one took me a long time to make. In general, it should have been a short project - but I decided to make little bits and pieces of it complicated.
I didn't like the profile shape that I was supposed to use. So I kept trying to draw my own until I got a shape that I liked (though it looks nothing like me).
After I drew in some shapes and colored it all in with inktense pencils, I ended up letting this sit for some time. I wasn't sure what I wanted to put down. Should I be honest and just put down what ever I'm thinking? Should it be funny or serious? I was over thinking it big time!
Eventually, I just picked up a micron pen and wrote stuff down as my mind wandered about for the day. A bit more personal of a project than I'm used to. In fact, I was very hesitant to post this. But, I figured, why not? I gave it a try, right?
I would love to hear from you. How personal do you let your art projects go? How much do you like to share and expose, if at all?
