Do you find yourself driven to make something? If given homework at school, did you hand yours up neatly written, but plain, or neatly written and decorated with multicolour penwork? What do you think is the force behind this need to create, make, or otherwise construct something out of anything?
I have not done any art for over a week now and I’m going a little crazy. Plus I’m surviving on about two hours sleep. No answers to any challenges this week 🙁 I’m so sad that I’ve missed them, particularly Paint Party Friday as I was looking forward to that one.
I spent tonight tidying up my art corner in order to fit the primed boards inside the house.

I promise in the future to actually do something constructive for this challenge. I did scribble down Frenken Furter for the challenge, a […]
I did art today, but I can’t post it until tomorrow 🙁 I also worked up a concept for this week’s Illustration Friday and may make a first attempt at that challenge. I didn’t have a chance today. So what am I going to post about tonight? Memories in scribbles. We are currently looking at […]
Several years ago hubby and I went on holiday to Port Lincoln. On one of the days we were there, we went to Lincoln National Park. On that particular day the weather turned a little wintry. It was Spring and Port Lincoln sits out on the very end of a southern peninsula, cutting into the […]
