Day 14 – Inspired by a Pair of Glasses

…thanks to Rainee for getting me going on the30 Day Creativity Challenge

I’ve just completed my third art piece around the saying ‘This is impossible to read but it was fun to make.’ My inspiration came from watching Lesson two for the 2020: Pictures and Words year long class hosted by Carla Sonheim. The teacher for this class has us doing something very different but I was mesmerized by her glasses and decided to use her as my subject for this drawing. Thanks Martha.

Day 12 of Creativity Challenge

…thanks to Rainee for connecting me with the 30 Day Creativity Challenge

Today I finally got around to starting my first assignment for the year long on-line course called 2020: Words and Pictures. Carla Sonheim’s first lesson was taking a phrase and creating at least three different art pieces using any medium we wanted. The phrase is:

‘This might be impossible to read but it was fun to make.’

I kept writing the phrase from the centre of a circle and just kept going and going, around and around. In the end I decided to add some collage detail and write the phrase one more time. 4412CB23-9DDF-458F-B59C-F752A23C0355_1_201_a
