Week 3 is collage projects.
For years I have wanted to collage.
I had the boards, the medium, the papers and the time but fear ruled.
When fear rules rarely do things get done.
All I needed was to pay for an online class, sit in a creative frame of mind
and set a couple of hours aside.
I tried to wait for free time without the kids but that never comes to fruition,
so yesterday when Jude and his friend were working on their
spelling sentences I got down to business.
The business of creativity and collaging.
I pulled out years worth of papers and bits.
Consulted my trusty assistant and set to work.
Gluing, pasting, moving, changing and on and on.
Maybe the piece is finished.
Maybe there is more work to do.
The ever changing nature of art.
Not my favorite but the process...
oh so good to quell the angry voice of self doubt and failure.
To stand up and say,
"I am creative and therefore I will create."
Daring to be brave.
Isn't that what I am paying for in the class?
The chance to to dare.
