Art Show + My Weekend with Paint
I was lucky enough to go to an art viewing about a week ago and was quite inspired by all of the talented work that surrounded me. Huge paintings, life size sculptures, and glass work that was brilliant. It was an environment in which you didn’t want to move quickly or make any sharp moves for fear of knocking something over or worse yet breaking it. So naturally, I took my kids to the event. I always look for opportunities to expose them to various elements of culture and this was certainly one to explore. The NO STROLLERS sign was probably translation for, “No one under 18″ - but, oh well. Surprisingly, they behaved and shocked many of the spectators (including myself). Maybe they were speechless due to sensory overload.
I’ve been looking for time to do some art work (still figuring out a routine since the new job started). Over the weekend, I finally got my wish and spent time whipping around some paint. This is one of my finished projects…
For some reason, the colors just make me happy! I would love to do something like this on a huge piece of canvas and hang it up.
