When I looked at the calendar and noticed that May Day was going to be this past weekend, I couldn’t help but start singing Jonathan Coulton’s “First of May”. Â If you are unfamiliar, it is a delightfully naughty song about outdoor lovemaking starting because of the warmer weather. Â The lyrics are NSFW or kids, but I love this song anyway. Â You can check him out at http://www.jonathancoulton.com.
There are a lot of layers in this week’s art journal entry. Â It was going well but when it was “finished” I wasn’t quite satisfied. Â I was going to stop at the Satyr and the Nymphs, but then read a blog post by Barb The Craft Junkie. Â On her Craft Therapy blog, she posted Sarah Whitmore’s Rules for Making Art. Â Rule 9 leaped out at me:
9. Donâ€™t ever fall in-love with one part of a piece and â€œbabyâ€ it. A great teacher once told me, if you find yourself falling in love with one cornerâ€¦paint over it until it is the same as the rest.
So that’s exactly what I did and added two more layers. Â :)
Peace, Love & Motorcycles!
