Making a Mess....Finding My Style!


Sometimes learning what is NOT your style is just as important as learning what IS your style.  Here is what I have learned to be true this week:



1.  Sketching out a rough draft ahead of time is NOT my style.  


2.  Small, painstaking detail work is NOT my style.


3.  Highly repetitive work is NOT my style.


4.  I like to work intuitively - that IS my style.


5.  I like it messy and unplanned - that IS my style.


6.  I need for art to happen quickly and come together in an explosion of color - that IS MOST DEFINITELY my style!!


What's your style?

Hi Mary! Your style is definitely your own and it is beautiful! I agree that sometimes starting with what we don’t want to be, do or create can be a wonderful pathway for discovering what we can be, do or create. Love the photos you’ve included here, too.
Keep dreaming barefoot!

Good idea. I need to really sit down and determine exactly what it is I like to do…and what I do not like to do. Quick and dirty is my motto! Julie

It looks awesome! I think you had a great time making that art.

You and I have the same style! Every time I try to plan my art, I end up hating it and painting over it. I spent all day yesterday doing just that! I’m also terrible at it when I have a deadline and “have to” get something done.
