This blog has motivated me. I now have several related projects in mind:
It dawned on me that in this year of a major birthday, I forgot to paint a self-portrait which I like to do on each birthday. Today I gathered materials for one of my wild paintings, and those in turn have suggested info for a journal quilt (would like to get back to doing one a week), as well as some soft sculpture and a tablecloth of all things. This painting will be different (from the back), but incorporate a setting on a lake, scene of one of my birthday celebrations. Let me hint I will be FISHING for ideas but this photo is a start for my transformations. I have revisited Hokusai (love his humility about not having produced anything of significance by age 70 but expecting something marvelous at 110 years), gathered drawings of fish, and hope I get a chance to stuff some (the Adirondack finds and those of a blogger are inspiring).
