The Second Week of "The Artists Way"

Here is my second post for "The Artist's Way" series. I am moving along with the book and really taking my time with it. In other words it is layed out in 12 week chapters but my weeks seem to take me 14 or more days to work through. I did not want this to be added stress and I must say it does seem to be sparking something.

I am still doing the morning pages most mornings.... not all and again I am not beating myself up if I miss.
However I do enjoy doing them. So I have started to open up with more collage work.

I am an 'old school' Commercial Artist, trained to not make mistakes, not to make messes, no smudges, ink blots,etc...
Allowing myself the freedom to splash, spray, blot and not really think about design but just go with my feeling, has given me a renewed creativity that I haven't felt in awhile.


So these may not sing to everyone, but they are singing to me and I can't wait to do more!

Those are so beautiful! I'm thinking about doing some collage too. I was recently in an art gallery and there were some huge paintings by Mark English (Illustration God) that included collage.
