A snowy day tomorrow, so I will probably start with the Christmas village first…build it around a tree… maybe this one…it is part of a greeting card…yet now that I think of it…I made some collage houses for a bulletin board at school that I can use for this…and no school again tomorrow. So, on second thought I am going to start with the summer village in the sunshine. The collage houses above are sold so I am going to recreate the many houses I will need. Well, this is my 'idea' and now I can start imagining it as I get closer to my art table. That's the fun of creating art and also writing…ideas and plans begin to pop up in your head. Some ideas work and others don't. I have had the notion to make some little village paintings for some time now and this seems like a perfect time to start.
I can envision this in a series….where will this take us…you are invited…check back and I will post the progress.
