I recently signed up for Lifebook 2017 and have been working my way through the weekly lessons and found one that really floats my boat. The idea is to write out negative words about yourself and then burn that piece of paper and use the ash/gel medium mixture in a piece of art. I didn’t want to write more negative thoughts so I decided to burn some bad art. I have a lot of it. Mine I mean! So many ugly sketches, misshapen bodies from life drawing and half done trading cards, LOL. I could literally start a big bonfire with my shoddy offerings to the art gods. But I went small and only burned a couple of drawings in a bowl in my kitchen sink. Even that was enough to have me waving my arms around trying to dispel the ridiculous amount of smoke. If you do this art exercise, go outside!!
Another week’s work below, whimsical owls. I’m not big on drawing quirky critters but these are ok.
