“We need to commit to our creative path. I don’t mean to want to do it in our hearts or to make plans to do it. I mean to actually do it.” ~Sue Monk Kidd~ from The Dance of the Dissident Daughter
I did manage to complete eight more 4×4’s this week. Only 80 more to go :)
I have been watching some videos about doodling. It’s a fascinating process. I don’t like to do suggested patterns that many zentanglers draw, but prefer to let the pattern flow as I go. That’s just me, the patterns of Zentangles are really beautiful and intricate. The videos by Pic Candle intrigued me this week. She does more of a cartoon style of doodling but I really like it. I also like the little creatures that Teesha Moore draws in some of her journals.
Here’s one of many videos on You Tube by Pic Candle:
I went off into my sketching foray but I don’t think sketching per se is my cup of tea. I like sketching and I will sketch sometimes but to keep a daily sketch book….I don’t know if I can do that. Collage is what I love to do most…that along with painting. I think a challenge for myself next year is going to be to get over my fear of painting on canvas…painting big. That being said, I do realize that I am learning valuable techniques and experimentation from doing my 4×4 series.
Here are this week’s 4×4’s. This first set numbers 113-116:
The next set numbers 117-120:
…until next time
