I am usually in the mood to make art but not always. I have come to the realization that I only need to make art when I really feel like it, thus avoiding making bland art that is just "going through the motions". This past week I haven't been in the mood. Instead I use my studio time to organize my collage papers, clean and get rid of extraneous stuff, and basically gear up for when the time to paint comes. Out of the studio I have been drinking in the spring weather and colors. These are my favorite crocuses in my yard. I love the find purple lines, so perfect. There isn't a lot of color out there right now, so the color that I do see I really appreciate even more. It's very important to my process and to my spirit to spend time in nature surrounded by these beautiful colors.
