Tintagel - Reflections

Painted in acrylics using palette knife and brush.  Enjoyed the abstract approach to this under the guidance of artist mentor Carole Foster.

A little bit late to get this secret posted. Can you see the faces.  Its pen and ink on water colour paper.  Secretly hidden faces having a secret conversation.  I have been a little busy lately and miss making the time to put something on static pencil blog.  I think the name ''static pencil'' is quite apt.  I do sometimes seem to get static, or stuck and not finding time to just have some fun.  Sorry if I  have not visited some of you fellow bloggers recently, I do love to see what everyone is posting.

Not always time to put paper and pencil together, I get swamped by all the other chores and activities.  Art is my health and well being time for me and I am making every effort to allow half an hour a night to concentrate on this creative outlet.  Using the word as a theme and depicting whatever comes up just by associations, I am intrigued by my own process as it grew.  I allow the pen and paper to meet and allow the process to happen.  Looking afterwards at my image I had an ''aha'' moment.  For me this presented the feeling of how all sensations around can begin to swamp the person ''me''.  I am there in amongst the growth of whatever it is that is swamping me.  I have a look on my face that tells me I can choose where I want to be.  This was at the beginning of the week and have since stepped out of my swamp and been embracing my pastel images that I am building a collection on.

This is a pen and ink in my journal for the theme of Yield.  It has been hard going this year to give myself some creative time.  Static pencil needs to get going again.  I am busy in the community running groups and teaching.  It has been good this year to get myself back into the creative groove just for me.  I will endeavour to add items from time to time. This piece is a little rushed.  I quite like how it evolved. I had no plan, just doodling while watching the tv the other night.  What do you think? dare I ask?

Pastel image created as a process response to the word of ''Fluid''.

It's good to be back and concentrating on my art and exploration of the processes for health and well being.  My studies, work load and compassionate care for family had turned 2011 into a mammoth year.  2012 has created a challenge and new direction.  I hope to indulge in my passion of the visual arts, and further expression for others in using the visual processes.  Gradually I will upload more information onto you tube, and my other counselling blog.  I appreciate any comments, and look forward to revisiting many creative others.  The theme of ''fluid'' is very apt and represents for me an everlasting life of exploration and movement.
