What Else Would You Like to Do?

First, thank you for all the good wishes during my illness. It means a lot to me, and I’m grateful for the many thoughts and prayers. Today, for the first time in several weeks, I’m up and about in my little “art room”, and I’m hoping to start spending a little more time here each day.

While recuperating, the closest I actually came to doing any art was to grab a sketchbook one day and doodle a bit. I actually spent more time playing with my kneaded eraser, however, than actually sketching anything.

Like a kid, I rolled the eraser, stretched it out, shaped it into a long, skinny figure, and wondered what it would be like to work as a sculptor. I imagined shaping noses and ears and cheeks from clay.

Although I have to admit, it seems almost a bit “creepy” to think of shaping a face with my hands, I think this is something I would like to try.

Or maybe pottery, “throwing” pots with a wheel — or however it’s done.

I love watching glass-blowers at work, but I don’t think I’d ever be bold enough to try anything like that.

 

Yes, I’ve enjoyed watching art videos over the past few weeks, and I’d love to know what artistic endeavors you’d like to try beyond the usual drawing and painting.

What secret artistic yearnings do you have?

  1. I’ve always fancied glass-blowing but like pottery, it’s beyond my crippled fingers!

  3. Hope you get better soon and back to art. My daughter and I will be dyeing wool this week because we will be trying out making felted paintings! I am excited. They are absolutely gorgeous and I never heard of the artform until last week. I thought it would help me to venture out more in a different way.

  6. Nope! Not even threading beads. That sort of thing has been difficult since I was 14!

    • I did a bit of bead-stringing when I was about 9 years old. My sister and her friends (a few years older) got into doing crafty things like that. I wasn’t very good at it, but I could sure make big messes!
