the august break // sign

august break 2013
Another crow feather to add to my growing collection... I'm really going to have to think of something to do with them. Or rather, choose which of the many ideas I have to go with!

Anyhoot, another crow feather showed up. Another sign that I am on my right path. Though I cannot see what is past the horizon, I put one foot in front of the other and trust that I will get there...

What signs have shown up for you lately?

visual quest | trance dance paint

visual quest with pixie campbellvisual quest with pixie campbellvisual quest with pixie campbell
Freeform movement with paint. Letting it all out. Just going with the flow. Riding the wave...

I don't know what else to say, only that it is what it is. Time (and more painterly layers) will only see how this evolves.

I am somewhat 'behind' with class. But at the same time, I don't want to rush beyond what I feel called (and to be honest, able) to do. So my pace is slow going but I'm okay with that.

Each time I step up to the canvas I feel trepidation. Once I am into it though, I am 'into it'. Completely. Knowing nothing else. I paint blind. Going with it... Then when it is done, I am satisfied. Quickly comes the next wave of trepidation. I feel like a surf rider: riding each wave as it comes, moving through each bubble of unease.

What's the worst that could happen? It is only paint after all...

the august break // something old

vintage singer
My vintage, 1929 Singer sewing machine. Gifted to me by my paternal grandmother when I was nine for sewing dolls clothes (funny that) and still going strong some eight decades later. For Singer's 160th Anniversary I shared my full Singer Story, adding it to the thousands they had already gathered.

the august break // refraction

august break 2013
Inspired by today's August Break prompt, my brain ran along a train of thought and 'we' played with several of these DIY in-camera tricks. My favourites and ones I found most successful, were candy-coloured filters made using coloured wrappers and some crazy refractions with an acrylic 'crystal' commandeered from an old light fitting. A little more practice is required, but I had a heap of fun playing all the same... *grin!*
