Inspired by the artwork of Alice and Martin Provensen.
So true! I've been into calligraphy for more than 7 years, and I always stack and store my papers that I use for practicing. I write on every suitable paper I can, from matte glossy ones to packaging papers. Of course making an artwork is cool, but as an artist, I value my stack of papers so much. They show me how far I've come, and the importance of tiny steps can mean a lot in long term. They are the unseen big part of the iceberg.
Love it, love it, love it. My friends keep on calling me An Artist. I just accept it now. As someone who has been doing daily art virtually every day since May 1 2020 (when the National Gallery of Australia released a month of prompts to keep the kids occupied through that first lockdown), I know that it’s all the little things, the joy of putting pen or brush to paper, the thought processes, the Joy, that make me an artist. The items I actually create are secondary.
Loving your words, your thoughts AND your art dear Christine. Sending heaps of hugs and best wishes. 🤗🤗🤗😘😘😘
