I can't remembe where I read recently that it's okay to make bad art. Here is an example. ;} I was feeling frustrated with collage because it didn't have enough of me in it. I really love to draw and I have learned to love my loose doodles so I thought I'd try incorporating some doodles into a piece & here is the result.
The prose is from a huge old book of Nursery rhymes that I found while renovating a building. It dates back to the forties. There are hundreds of nursery rhymes in that foolish book. I picked one, cut it out, found my inspiration and began. I drew the tree onto some more music paper using a sharpie. The windy swirlies are chalk and then they are glittered. I chalked the background of the prose, drew in the moon & stars, doodled a cat playing banjo, a little gel medium and VOILA. Art?! I don't love this piece but the more it lays around the house the more I think it isn't as bad as I originally thought. I will keep trying this thing with the rhymes for awhile to see where it goes.
My favorite nursery rhyme in the whole world is Owll & the Pussycat. Some day I will do a mural of that one!
