Stay connected..

I've had a pretty busy week at work

and...

the "creative spirit" was a little sluggish....

well I decided to "plough" through it, anyway... 
cutting, pasting and painting ....

and as a result......


Textured background, acrylic and collaged with my own background papers.


Altered photo from my personal collection






peace...

I definitely wouldn't call this plowing through! I have been feeling the same lack of creativity, I can relate!
Beautiful work. xox Corrine

Steph; I wish I could "plow" through like you do. Stunning work; love the textural collage with your papers! I've been a little sluggish, too, in the creative area and think it's the heat. It's been extremely hot, here, the past two weeks. Love your art work!

The third, most colourful one is my favorite! I love the bird and bit of lace/doily! Orange and Blue combinations tend to be my favorites!
I feel a little better hearing (reading) that someone else was a bit drained of inspiration and had to press on... I felt that I was sort of empty of ideas for so many days this past week. Today I gave in and sorted through ALL of my workspace and supplies, which prompted some inspiration - but it is soooo frustrating.
You work looks inspired and lovely nevertheless!

I like the continuity of color. Lots of flow here! Very nice.

If it's as hot in Singapore as it is in Kansas, I can understand sluggish. However, I think your art is never sluggish, nor would I call it plowing through. I was really taken by the monochromatic shades of the first piece, but I also like color. Your art is never boring, always inspiring. And I see you got the sewing machine going, too. Such a wonderful and eclectic mix you gave us to peruse.

your sluggish is wonderful dear Steph!

the first piece is so unique, the lack of color is stunning

Love your altered photo, just precious

each creation is special, but that is nothing new

seems like we were gone a long time ... I am anxious to create, it's quite a bit warmer in my upstairs studio ... I will just have to make do I guess
