no exit


some thoughts and ideas are bouncing around upstairs today, looking for an exit route, but no luck yet. i can even see colorful little receptors on the outside waiting to turn them into doodles :)

aimee said...

thereza: ha, 'process' sounds better than 'mental issues'! :)

please sir said...

Good luck! They will find a way out sooner or later.

hrsj said...

Hi Aimee - thanks so much for your sweet comments about my new work - your compliment was one of the nicest I think I've ever had!

And you've been working hard too - lots of fun, colorful artwork over here at Artsyville!

Maybe the next time you do a greetings series you could include the German "Hallo" or "Guten Tag" :)

Hey y'all. :) This looks like me at a traffic circle. I get all confused and end up going in circles a few times. I think you've got something great brewing in that brain of yours. It's gonna be biiiiiiiig!

We love AZ -- the openness, the rock formations, the saguaros. If it weren't for the little critters, I think I could stay here forever!

percolating, brewing... i hope you guys are right! because this morning the coffee grinder slipped out of my hands and coffee grounds flew all over the kitchen and i wasn't really sure how to interpret that. the kitchen smells really good though :)

stephanie :) oh i can never get enough of your work. i'm going send everyone your way again one of these days!

bella...yeah those roundabouts aren't so good for right brainers. i get confused too. my little town has a love affair with them. i need a very direct signal. stop. or go. wave hi to AZ for me :)

I love how you can make an idea out of not having any ideas.

fantastic drawing--that's just how I feel sometimes. I have to force myself to make artwork on a daily basis (or almost-but-not-quite-daily-basis), or else it's a struggle to get back to that creative process.

And to answer your question: I sketch out my collages first, although they're rough sketches so a lot of changes occur from the way I collage.

this is normal for my pea brain...it never stops whirling!

love this. for some reason, this piece plus tiny red's comment have me singing "part of the process" by morcheeba. girl, have i been there!
*) happy friday!!

Love how you illustrated this! Sometimes those receptors have a hard time becoming anything more than little dots, or bubbles unfortunately. Your greetings post is excellent as well btw!!

You expressed it so well...I know how that feels!
I love the little ketch you made there.:)

I hope the weekend would be more inspirational..it takes time to bring out all of that creativity lingered inside.
