Creation and play are the same word to me. Study becomes play when art is involved.

I love the saying "Chaos-where brilliant dreams are born.
Before the beginning of great brilliance, there must be chaos.
Before a brilliant person beging something great they must look foolish to the crowd."

I am not brilliant but i am good at chaos and maybe there is hope :)
Yesterday I was playing with an old drawing and worked up a small watercolor of a leaf..
then I spent most of this morning playing with the photo of it in on my PC

cropping... turning and cropping again...

and now I have one to work with for another painting...soon to be a bird.
My playing for the day.

time to play

Sometimes to loosen up and recharge I just have to play abit......
peacocks...fruit of the loom birds...I don't know but I felt better after putting this on paper.
There was no plan, just dipped the brush in paint and started...and this is what I got, and they made me smile, hope they put a smile on your face.
Now maybe I can get down to some serious painting.

Sometimes they are just testing paint colors to see what they will do,

others are ones that are keepers to work up later.
