Ok, I will admit to being a bookstore stalker, I'm in there on an almost daily basis. What am I looking for? Well, I'm glad you asked! I'm searching for INSPIRATION!!!!!!
It's a longing that just rarely goes away......and it's actually been somewhat of a "dry" spell for moi in that department, for a myriad of reasons...my studio is a mess, dh and I have signed on as auction chairs for dd's school auction for the second year in a row, my studio is a mess (wait, did I already mention that?), lack of any real focus, being negative about my art because I don't (in my little bubble of a world) sell what I think is "enough" of it to even justify making more. And just how dumb is that? I should be making art just for the joy of making art!
Today while perusing at a bookstore I came across this gem of a new book. My heart started beating faster because it's been exactly what I've been searching for....the direction I'd love to go with my art.
I just can't wait to really be able to sit down with this book and start creating...right after I clean up my studio (did I mention it's a mess?).
Thank you to author Annie Lockhart for writing this book!!! I need it so badly right now :).
