I spent a busy afternoon with the Red car.
I will blog about that tomorrow...
Dues to a scheduling error, I arrived at work and discovered today was actually my day off.
I went home feeling ready to work, but not like going anywhere, since I had been out all day.
I realized I still hadn't posted pictures of the collages I made while I was in San Diego.
We had a lot of free time in the evenings.
I was able to find a composition book, and scissors, (but no glue) at the little market on the corner near the AirBNB we were staying.
I had some acrylic craft paint, which I brought along for my sister to use on a different project.
The first day, all I had was that paint to decorate the cover of the composition book.
Eventually we went to places where I was able to find glue sticks, and other interesting things.
I tore up some travel magazines and local weekly newspapers and made collages.
With the limited materials and lots of free time, I was able to focus and make some cool things!
This was a tacky vase decorating the table at the AirBNB:
I didn't make art everyday, but there were two or three days of really intense art-making.
A lot of the time we spent talking about our childhood and people who aren't there anymore.
I filled up more than 10 pages of the notebook, front and back!
It was the most art I had done in a long time.
Some of the stuff I made was silly, but it was fun, and therapeutic.
