Pieces I particularly enjoyed this month at the MoMA:
I’ve recently discovered that embroidering is a very meditative activity for me.
I’ve been working on this for a couple church services.
I believe the doodling also helps me to focus on sermons a little more too.
For my birthday this year, my older sister asked me what I wanted to do with her to celebrate. She wanted to take me out to dinner, but I asked her if we could just grab dinner to eat casually and quickly; I told her I just wanted to paint with her and make art, and so we did :). She managed to persuade me to agree to making this a painting session of making one of Joan Miro’s famed paintings, The Birth of the World.
This is hers. I made mine off of my favorite colorway which are the 3 primary colors, and I added a boa constrictor digesting the elephant which is another “favorite” of mine from Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s Le Petit Prince.
That was a great evening for me.
I really appreciated having a moment to rest, being in a relatively quiet environment, and being able to do something mindlessly, unambitiously, and completely for my pleasure–my pleasure alone.
Just another packaging proto using a lot of makeshift materials:
