Into each life, a little drizzle will fall...

(Drizzle - art journal page - June 15, 2010)

Creativity Boot Camp Day 9 - For the Love of Art...

Random Prompt Word - Drizzle

Maegan encouraged us to go back to our roots in terms of creating, returning to some simple art making techniques we appreciated in our past - even back in childhood.

I just picked up a pencil and started drawing, inspired by a vision I had first thing this morning when I played with the word "drizzle" in my head.

For me, the red umbrella represents creativity and art. When life's drizzle starts to fall, and you know it will, turning to my own creativity and inner artist helps get me through.

Still pretty funky here in the realm...

That's okay though....

Just some drizzle to go through I guess...

Today is actually looking like a pretty perfect beginning of summer day, kind of what a red umbrella would feel like.

It is sunny. It is supposed to be around 79 degrees.

And I have a Arty Play Date at my friend Patti's Poolside Paradise with a bunch of art friends gathering...

As long as I don't look in the mirror when I put on my bathing suit, it should be a sweet treat of a day!

I hope you find your red umbrella today, Beautiful Ones.

Big Love !

This is frame worthy art Kim...I love it. It's been metaphorically drizzling and outright pouring rain here in my life too. Just enjoying the bits of sun here and there. The red umbrella? Fantastic idea!

I love this one! Love the words drizzle mixed in with the rain drops! The big splash of red stops the word drizzle from being dreary iykwim!

Delightful drawing! Wonderful journal page! Whimsical. Yet full of feelings too.

WrightStuff said...

Funny, but when I saw it at first I thought it was chinese characters! It does have a bit of an oriental feel somehow?? What do you think? Anyway, actually I really love it. A perfect journal page. Keep that drizzle out with more inspiration like this please :)
