I hereby declare an official end to my "Broken Wrist Series" of tangles.
My wrist (and my hand, which was the real worry) is coming back to life and acting more and more normal with every passing day. Finally. I've been out of commission for nearly four whole months, but I'm returning to more normal life now!
To celebrate, I tangled with a friend today.
At the moment I'm in upstate New York, and it's been quite a few days with no art, so the above was a warmup. After which I did this:
I stuck that tile into the pre-strung journal on one of the "not-strung" pages, with another tangle I tried recently:
Recently I'd bought some transparent photo corners and am happy I did--I like them better than the opaque corners. I'm enjoying using this journal, which allows me the choice to draw directly on a page or to paste in a tile. Some of the pages have strings pre-drawn, and others are blank; I appreciate having both options.
My buddy and I are both taking an online sketching course that begins tomorrow. We'll see if either of us has the guts to post some of what we do.
Wow, does it feel good to be drawing again.
I'm a textile artist (traditional rug hooking, punch needle rug hooking, and other textile arts), a long-time meditator, a certified meditation teacher and coach, and focused on learning about the interplay of art, creativity, and mindfulness every day.
