Daily Painting: A very quick collage

Daily painting

Dear reader,


Today I wanted to work on my video for the new course.

And I decided this would be creative work too, so: no painting this morning, but editing.

But I didn’t manage to import my video in iMovie. Oooh, a thousand frustrating things happening. So I worked on the accompanying text. Another thousand frustrating things, because how do I explain all those technical things about color contrast and value in English? I feel like stumbling all the time.

So at the end of the morning, I thought: hmmm, I have not felt this creative flow this morning. Now it’s MY time. And I made this quick collage. Being amazed again how fast you can work with collage, and how much fun it is.

    Oh, I can identify with your frustrations! I’m glad you recognized the need to get some forward-moving creative flow into your morning—thank goodness for the straightforward, free-flowing fun of collage : )
