Inspire Me Thursday is a weekly artistic challenge which is posted on the Thursday of every week and must be completed before the following Thursday.
This week’s challenge is to create a piece of art without using your senses.
Hmmmm. How do you create art without using your senses? Another challenging week for me. Anytime you have to step out of your comfort zone, is another opportunity for growth right? Well, here it goes.
This week while rummaging through the garage I found some plaster and an old wooden board. So in the dark garage, with the baby asleep and Super-E quietly playing in the sandbox, I started making my mess. First, I smeared plaster all over the board then, closing my eyes, I drew this picture with the pointy end of a paint brush. You can’t really see the texture in this piece, but after the plaster dried, I painted the crevices and bumps with paint colors I usually don’t use (purple, blues, bright greens). It’s definitely not something that I’m used to. I even contemplated not posting it. But, I did spend all afternoon making it so I might as well share it- right? I guess if you put it up with all of my other art- it definitely would not make any sense.
