Something nothing and not much of that!

I have been beavering away this week, cutting and pasting. I hope the ABC will be finished next week. I will show and tell it then.

On Monday night my friend Lorraine and I got together, as we do most Monday nights recently, to finish up doing Julia Cameron's Vein Of Gold ( The Artists Way on steroids!) We started in a couple of years ago and then the group disbanded and it never got finished - till now. So long preamble to the two pictures I am showing today. The exercise was to do something that has been done before and do it in a repetitious manner. So here you have flowers and hearts. I did them with my newish water soluble wax pastels. I really like them. And I LOVED doing something that wasn't FOR anything it was just done to do. I will do more. I have been so focused for so long, it was just lovely to muck around!

I have a really busy weekend but will do my best to get round to all the Paint Party Friday entries

  1. Smetimes it is very important just to creat, without having a purpose, I am doing this everyday now in my journal, and it is doing me good. Glad you enjoyed playing with the water soluble crayons, they are great,too!

  7. These look like they were fun to create. It is nice to draw just for the sake of drawing, with no project in mind.

  8. Rosie, they are delightful. Whenever I doodle flowers, I end up with the cone flowers. They are beautiful. So are the hearts. Faye

    This year I have fallen in love with coneflowers all over again!
    Planted quite a few in the garden but haven't drawn any yet, I just might try one now.

  12. What a wonderful way to spend an evening with a friend. Sometimes this kind of creative doodling leads to something that is so much more and other times it is just the perfect way to wind down from a long day, either way just wonderful.
