Sam and I have discussed our worries over losing our creativity and our pursuits for our work. It has been difficult to have much time to do much but that doesn't mean I can't work on little projects here and there. Lately I have been working on a new watercolor of Isabella which I will have done in another session but I found it very hard to get back into drawing and painting. I try not to worry so much about what the work will look like but that the work is part of a process of growing as an artist. Today I spent some time constructing new visuals for Jude's mobile that hangs above his pack and play. I have used old leftover cardboard toilet paper dispensers to cut out odd bug shapes, with wings or strange bodies. I painted them white on one side and black on the other and folded them inward so that they have a 3 dimensional look. I am actually quite happy with them. I will try to brainstorm some other little projects for tomorrow so that I am ready for something.
