I started this piece without a real plan. The only plan I had was to find some peace, to find some calm and find a way to temper my anxiety.
Creating always does that, I get lost in the process and tune everything out. And I needed that in a big way this week.
There is so much uncertainty with the virus and the nonstop barrage of media is overwhelming and anxiety-inducing.
So I pulled a few things out and just started creating and this is what came out.
I used a new collage pak that was perfect and some of the background papers are free to you in the resource library.
The super heavy gesso was just the right thing for some yummy texture.
My hope is that I can be some sort of calm for you right now. That I can give you a few moments of rest in the mere act of creating.
My love, take care of yourself and your people, wash your hands and hold those you love tight! And help your community as you can in the safest way possible.
You are loved! Take a rest and enjoy the video.
