process

I haven’t been very present on the blog lately…
I’ve found myself between places in my creative journey… As I’m learning, I experiment all sorts of things…I learn, get some ideas, try, process, try again and so on…

While doing this, I am experiencing this push-pull kind of internal conversation, some sort of yearning, a hunger to create. Great, isn’it?! well… not so much! I try to express this desire…and that’s where I get stuck and very frustrated!!!

I am looking for my own voice, my own style. I am aware that my style is, right now, developing; this is part of the process. But my impatient self would like to know what kind of art I want to do…

As an apprentice, I get influenced by many, renown, established and emerging artists..a wonderful flow of inspiration…But at times, I’d like to turn off the flow of information that I’m getting…to just tap into my own flow.

a work in progress;)

I did this sketch on a background. I was happy with her pose and expression..

 
She turned out very different and no matter how much I worked and reworked her, I couldn’t get her nose right. So she got a clown nose for it!

 

Not happy with her!

Then I tried some collage with a Rumi poem and some bold marks which was fun to do. The initial sketch was fun and kept the boldness….

  

But then I kept working on it … And was so disappointed of loosing the initial drawing! 

This one was inspired by my friend Anne and her challenge A Face A Day for this year. Check her out, she’s amazing!

  

Oh well…. This is the process of all things😉

  1. Oh I know that feeling…seeing something that you love turn in a direction you’re not happy with. It helps me to hear about your process. I love where both of these pieces ended up, but I also know that we can be our own harshest critic. Thank you for sharing so honestly. You are not alone.
