I created this journal page before my surgery using this foam stamp, that I showed you how to make previously here.
Instead of using paint, I stamped my paper with gesso and then finished it with watercolor.
Today, I wrote this quote by Leo Tolstoy:
I have been forced to stop a moment as I recover from foot surgery and I miss my daily art practice a great deal. I realize it has only been a week since the surgery yet I long to be able to sit again at my art table without my foot screaming in pain. I must be patient…
Taking a break does have a positive aspect too as it allows time for me to evaluate where I am currently on my art journey and where I would like to be headed in the future.
Do you take the time to assess your creative practice from time to time? I realize that it’s not easy for me to do this assessment but important.
