The ordinary arts we practice every day at home are of more importance to the soul than their simplicity might suggest ~ Sir Thomas Moore ~

life is your art ...what are you creating today?

I love badgers ... everything about them fascinates me ... I also love painting badgers ...
I painted this little badger face a while ago & it has sat in Sparrow Studio on a shelf just waiting to be finished. I fell in love with this particular piece (when you are smiling the entire time you are painting, it's always a good sign) ;-) 
life is your art
what are you creating today?

I wanted to do something different and tossed about a few ideas … should I embellish with ribbons and trinkets? perhaps a miniature weaving with twigs and dried reeds from my garden? 
and then yesterday, while walking through the woods with Archer, I was thinking about this piece and the idea of a miniature macramé hanging came to me. Some twine to hang a piece of Lake Ontario driftwood completed the hanging which I really love x
Creativity is experimenting
growing
taking risks 
breaking rules
making mistakes
&
having fun

Nothing created here today. I have been reading. Maybe I will now.
Your badger put a smile on my face too. This is a very fancy finish for this painting.
