We come into this world head first and go out feet first; in between, it is all a matter of balance.

Circus Girl, 12″x9″ mixed media painting on paper. Available HERE.

Paper is my first love. I didn’t actually work on canvas till I was in grade 12. I didn’t pick up a paint brush much before that. So it is understandable when I am feeling a little lost or a little  uncertain about what I am doing, about the direction my art is taking (or in this case NOT taking),  I want to work on paper again.

I love paper.  I love the different textures, smells, weights. I love buying paper to use in my paintings. Japanese papers, tissue papers, pages from old books. They all give me such pleasure. They make me want to play.  Right now, play is what I need to do.  I haven’t felt this way,  for this long,  for a very  long time and I don’t want to say I am having a crisis but ….pssst….I am having a crisis.

I have been working through it but working is not fun. I have decided, from now on, I am going to play through it.

Doodle through it.

Noodle through it.

So today I just worked on paper, with paper.

I doodled.

I noodled.

And I played.
