Searching for my Muse
As I have mentioned before we sold our house in Massachusetts and have moved down to South Carolina, quite a long adventure but we're here and getting settled in. I was sure I packed my "Muse" and carried her around with me for the past 5 months or so but at times I feel like she has been misplaced, then suddenly she reappears! Usually when I feel like this I start drawing faces and inspiration soon follows. So here I go again with the faces. I don't like to start on a blank page so I used the paper to clean off gesso from a Seth Apter stencil first, let it dry then used the paper as a paint palette for a couple of days, just something to clean off a brush or mix watercolor pencil colors on. Next I used Jane Davenport's small face stencil to get me going in the right direction.
