Finding Inspiration

I’ve decided for 2018 to quit going upstairs to my studio to make “ART”.  Now I am going upstairs to my studio to PLAY and quit being so serious.  I’m seeing what I can make in an hour.  My best subject matter I’ve decided is my own imagination….

Straight Lines

This little ditty was inspired by another blogger who had taken the time to read my post on Escaping Perfectionism and liked it.  So I  returned the visit (he has a very nice blog by the way).  In his ABOUT page he said he could not draw a straight line.  This got me to thinking about this commonly said phrase implying one has no artistic talent.  Exactly, what is so great about drawing a straight line? What a boring thing to aspire to.  This one is for you Cristian!

STRAIGHT LINES

You say you can’t draw a line that’s straight

MARVELOUS!

That’s what rulers are for

 Do zig and  zag and loop de loop them

And think of straight no more.
