Creative Juicing

Howdy Strangers!

It's been a while since I have been a regular blogger. The hiatus was well served and well deserved. Getting back into groove is proving harder than I thought it would be. In order to get my creative juices flowing, I have decided to tap into the ripe fruit of a local artist. This artist is so local, I simply turned around and asked some questions!

Interview with 9 y/o daughter
Interviewer (that's me!): "Why do you create so much art?"
Artist (Darling Daughter): "Because I have to and it makes me happy.
Interviewer: "How do you decide what you're going to make?"
Artist: "Ideas just pop into my head."
Interviewer: "When you are creating, do you always know how you want it to look when it's done?"
Artist: "No. Sometimes I start making something and it decides how it wants to be. Sometimes I just sit down to draw and the picture comes out."
Interviewer: "How do you know when it's done?"
Artist: "It's done when I say it's done."

Words of wisdom and lots of creative juice here!

Bow, arrows, and quiver  created with the help of creative brother. Quiver made of cardboard, gift wrap & yarn. Bow & arrows are made from bamboo and yarn. Shirt & necklace by Darling Daughter Designs.

This diorama was in an art show. See the little fishy in big fishy's mouth? Fish are ceramic. Underwater world made of paper and imagination. Rocks are the real deal.
