A creative day!

There should be a law against eating fish in an office. (It's not even Lent.)
And eating fish while using the copier should be a capital offense!

Today I went to the third of four creative journaling classes, by artist Jacki Long.
She provides us with paint, papers, and tools and points gives us ideas for different projects.
Everyone has their own interpretation.

Jacki took a lot of pictures of today's work, that can be found on her blog, as well as links to upcoming classes.

Here are some things that we worked on today:

One project involved drawing from a small picture of a school child from the 50's.
Everyone had fun with that one.
I'm a terrible liar, so it was really hard to make something that didn't look exactly like the picture.

Another project was to paint an animal, real or imaginary:

                                   I made a grid.

Jacki brought some pretty patterned paper tape to use,  and I paid tribute to the late, great David Bowie.

I'm not sure what's going on with the arm; I messed up and couldn't reposition the tape.
That's going to disturb me for a while...
