At Loose Ends....

Here I am again with not much to share with you. I've been searching google for subjects to blog about, running through my mind (it's not hard to do since it's mostly wide open space!), and generally trying to come up with something interesting to write about. Since writing is not my main focus, it isn't always easy. Mostly I think I write like I talk....rambling all over the place!

I did do a couple of little sketches that sum up how I'm feeling....the first one is in my "altered book" and I'm calling it "She's a Weird Bird"....



And this one is "At Loose Ends"....



This one is done over two pages in my moleskine. I'm not sure if I'll add any more to it but for now that's what I have.

  1. Janet,

    These are both wonderful. I like how you have channeled your dissatisfaction right into your artwork. That is awesome.

  3. I think these say volumes about how you feel, and even our sadness or frustration give way to that creative place. I am still fighting this bug, but so much better. I was feeling pretty sorry for myself yesterday. So much I want to do and no energy to get it done. In my thoughts, Mary
    our tulips are opening, and it is still cold, we are having a very long winter/spring.

  4. I love these Janet... I think they say how you feel. I feel that way too a lot. Pics are better than words anyway, most of the time.

  5. You don't have to find interesting things to write about when you post pictures as good as these! Fantastic!!

  6. Janet, I loooooooooooove the book art! Your art on a book page and Tammie's art on the sheet music are both so inspiring me these last two days! What is it about seeing art on top of a printed page like that? I don't know, but you drawing is just beautiful... makes me just stop and stare for the longest time...
    Lots of miracles to you!

  7. Hi Janet, She is a weird bird, but I love her, so unique. She looks like she is made from the number 3. I also like the lose ends. Hugs***Renea

  8. I can look at your drawings for a very long time. Both of these are fantastic. I'm inspired by the moleskin drawing... can picture a painting with those amazing lines. xo

  10. Janet, your work shows a quiet muse at work. You may not have too much to SAY at the moment, but you certainly have something to SHOW us.

  12. She's a weird bird is like a music note that has become a bird. I like it. You have done some wonderful work there.

  13. I love both of these drawings!

    I haven't been writing (or creating) at all lately... I understand! For me, when I'm stressed, I don't want to share much because I sound whiney! In my opinion, writing on a blog should be a want to, not a have to. Write when you feel like you want to, don't write when it is a struggle.

    Just my 2 cents worth! :)

  14. Love "loose ends" Janet. The bird is good but "loose ends" is wonderful.

  15. I like them both - but especially, the bird - maybe 'cause I can identify, lol. And don't be so hard on you - I always like your writing too, Janet!

  16. I Love both of them. Thats such a neat idea. I have made several altered books but I glued and stamped in them. But I like the simple idea of just drawing in them. And I really missed you this week.
