my creative space




a very short/patchy stint in my space today as i had my first professional driving lesson smack bang in the middle of my time!
it seems that switching my brain into the space behind the wheel of a manual sedan ~ with wayne beside me and a student teacher in the back quizzing me on my 'abilities' and the road rules ~ is ok, but switching it back to a relaxed state for a successful 2 hours in my creative space is not so easy!
but how good will it be when i can drive!!
i added a little colour to the small canvases but i'm really not sure how i feel about them. i love making drawings like this on paper and really want to make 'more of them' by making them into stand alone, ready to hang little pieces. it seems in a way tho, that making more of something minimal may not be the way to go. will have a propper look tomorrow.

hope you have had a creative time today ~ to play along or see more spaces go to kootoyoo :)

I have the same problem when I try to paint after I've been drawing a lot or vice versa. I want to do the same thing with the other material and it just doesn't work for me. I'm trying to keep my painting just about painting and not try to do so much drawing with it...does that make sense? I hope you can find your direction with these. If it's any help, I do like how these are looking, but I understand it might not be quite what you're after yet :)

Good luck with the driving lessons!

I think that the canvas looks fantastic already! And I'm a big fan of your 'punch holes and dots pictures' :)

Your greens are unusual, very ethereal- tricky- but the canvases are working so well already...- I 've in a very green phase too, my family is beginning to get worried...Good luck with it all and with the driving lessons ...
