Just Jot it January/Stream of Consciousness Saturday Art


Our Just Jot it January prompt today is the Stream of Consciousness Saturday promptĀ “ART”

What is art? Does art, like beauty, lie in the eye of the beholder? Apparently, it does. On a recent trip to an art museum, I saw a lot of paintings, sculptures and drawings that just made my mind go “hmmm, that’s art? My 4 year old great grandson does better work than that.” But, I turn around and ponder a somewhat obscure Monet. I can get lost in the flow and patterns and wander about in that painting for hours. I get art, but some art, I just don’t “get.” That’s OK. In fact it’s wonderful.

Spoonie Saturday – new creative outlets

Anybody who’s followed me for awhile knows I’m a spoonie and a little bit of what that entails. Sometimes we spoonies need to explore a different creative channel and this year I’m trying to do just that. So imagine my delight when I found theĀ Escapist Coloring Club over at lindaghill.com. Awesome! I love to color, it’s relaxing and creative and … did I mention it’s coloring? How cool is that.

I do art journal pages including some sort of art, usually collages, drawings, bits from colored pages etc. and the add some sort of writing, poetry, story, musings, etc. So for the first Saturday of the January Escapist Coloring Club Challenge, here’s what I’m working on. Somewhere along the way this month, I’ll show you some examples of what I do with these “art works” I create.
