Back in September Fiona Paltridge put out a call for any artists to contribute a piece of art work towards an Art auction for her kindergarden that she works for. I sent her a message, saying if she got desperate and needed some extra work I would be happy to put something together. She replied “YES”, much quicker than I would have liked. I really like creating art but I am very protective of it and the possibility of someone not liking it or even worse my worstever fear…what if it is the only piece that doesn’t sell when auctioned. I then had a bit of an internal meltdown for a few days. What had I subjected myself to?! I then, decided not to think about it and let something work out.
I was working on another project that included some monoprinting and I pulled way more prints than I would ever need for three tags so one afternoon I sat down with these prints to see what I could come up with. I worked on a few prints to see what I could see in them. Two turned out brilliantly. This is the first time in a long, long time that I sat down and drew just because. That “just because” afternoon, turned out to be something that I was happy to offer to the auction and a few other nice pieces to add to my art journal.
Here is my piece that I decided to donate to the auction.
I added some gold ink too, this is a better angle to see that.
And here are a few of the other pieces I created.
