Art Inspired By Boredom

Sorry I have not been able to post for a couple of weeks. Getting back into the swing of things at work and in Calgary (due to the recent annoying snow storms) etc., etc., has been a lot harder than I expected. After having a blissfully warm sunny week in Arizona and then coming back to the cold and snow stormy weather well it has done tuckered me right out! I haven't been able to get warm since I got back! I honestly believe that Calgary does not know it's May! Today however, is the first beautiful sunny day in awhile and I plan to enjoy it, starting off with going to the dentist and getting a cavity filled!!! whoo-hoo! LOL.

I have gotten all caught up at work after my trip and now things have slowed right down... so... I have been extremely bored with nothing to do. I brought some of my art supplies to work and have been creating a bit of 'Mail-Art' which I plan to send out today. I have enjoyed creating these little artworks as I know that when I receive them it always warms my heart and I am certain it will warm the recipients hearts as well.

Also, I have been thinking about my nieces a lot and decided I would doodle their names... I haven't done one for Shanice yet, but here is the doodle I did for Destiny. I hope she likes it. I plan to send it to her soon.

Finally, the Art-house Co-op is having a project called "The Things I Dream About" and the idea is to draw out the things you dream about on a 4x6 sheet of paper, then send it in and they will display it in their library. I just started doodling one day at work but I am not "okay" with this one, it's not "the one" so I will keep trying...

I hope that all your days have been fantastically filled with glorious color and sunshine and a beautiful burst of creativity!
Happy Creating Everyone!

That is some great mail art! Yes, the recipients will be happy to get it.

Sometimes its hard to go home when there is something there that reminds you of why you like to get away such as the cold weather (for me it's the dirt and wind and heat). It takes a little while to reacclimate to it.

So when does doodling become art? These are wonderful. Such patience. A real inspiration.
