Last weekend, with Caroline and Emmy as both my patronesses of the arts and my shopping companions, I purchased a 30x30" canvas, the biggest that's ever come into my studio.
As we walked through the art store, I kept saying, I have no idea what to do with something this big!
But something in me has the urge to go big(ger).
So, that's where I'm going.
Once home, in the middle of the night after that acquisition, I woke briefly. What rose to the surface before I sank back into sleep was this:
I can use this canvas like a blackboard. I can "write" and "erase" on it.
I can doodle with a pencil.
I can make one hundred 3x3" ink sketches.
I can paint a tree.
I can create an abstract with pastels.
I can do whatever I want.
As many times as I want.
Today, I made some marks.
