Spontaneity And Inspiration In A Journal06/22/2014
Being inspired and spontaneous in a journal are the goals to which I aspire. Today they occurred in perfect harmony.
Here’s how it went. A friend shared a pretty photo on Facebook that inspired me to try a little color matching. Without wasting a minute, except to chase off the spider that had taken up residence in my palette, I grabbed my Kuretake waterbrush and played with the blues in my kit until something akin to the original photo emerged.
Time invested? Ten minutes at the most to meet both artistic goals.
And it made my day.
Moral of the story? Don’t hesitate. Embrace!
