Thank you everyone for your kind words, your thoughts, ideas and empathy.
My ring is still missing but, as I often do when I’m feeling turbulent inside (and the wind is howling outside, which it is) I go into my studio and dive into curiosity and creativity, allowing whatever is seeking to appear, come to light.
The muse was all about exploring the question… “I wonder what would happen if I…”
In this case, the ‘if I’s’ were all about mixing different media to see what might happen.
Layer upon layer. Additions. Subtractions. Layer upon layer.
Like life. We try on a new pair of shoes and if they don’t fit, we try a different pair.
My art process yesterday worked the same. I tried spray inks and acrylic inks on top. Gesso through a stencil. Inkpad on top. Again and again and again.
No groans of disappointment.
Just pure, unabandoned experimentation.
Because… in a world where confusion, disarray, and dismay become the ordinary tidings of our days, sailing into a rainbow world of magic and mystery is a wonderful way to transform every day into something extraordinary!
