Saturday! Silly Art Creations

Saturday is here!  Its Time.  Time for some silliness….. to create some wild and fun, even hilarious art!   No serious poker faces here today. Nope.

Make a mess. Put a sheet down. Take it outside. Take it into the garage. Don’t let ‘Tidiness and Mess’  waggle their fingers at your precious artist within. Not today.

Don’t let anyone else see it. Better still, create art with the grandchildren.

They will LOVE It!

Silly Art: what I did today

 

A watercolor dabble with plastic wrap, in purples and teals, and a yellow.  I made a mess splashing around trying out lots of different colors, brushes and papers!

 

Then I took it inside.  Picked one image randomly and photographed it.

With the one photograph, I  turned my imagination loose.  And imagined…… All sorts of fun things to do.

 

Next step,   I Then went into the new digital art program and proceeded to ‘bend, mangle and decimate’ to my heart’s content!  Of course none are masterpieces! They weren’t meant to be. Today.

 

Today was for ‘Silly Saturday’  – Free to do whatever a kid would do. Excellent!

Summary

For those who may still be wondering, “What’s the Point?   ‘silly-shmilly’, let’s get to work!”

 

  • Well,  I believe that by playing we learn. We learn many things; not only the subject we are engaged in, but about problem solving in general. Very Useful, yes.
  • Also,  by playing I am practicing this skill.  Practice makes perfect.  I will practice, A LOT.
  • And then,  I just discovered… I really like the purple, teal blue, green, gold  color combination.
  • In the past, I’d have turned from it.  But,  I see that this combination appeals to me now. I will use it for more paintings in the near future.

 

 

Enjoy Saturday. Be ‘silly’.

Go. make a mess!

  2. Hey I’m not alone playing with digital programs and creating mandalas of some sort and I love it too, really! Goes in an eye blink and there it is, while to make a shoe design takes long this is how I unplug the wires and let the connections loose! Great post, now I go and have some fun, sorry…silly fun! 🙂 🙂 🙂
