there are many ways to create an image. but my favorite is the doodle. especially on wednesday.
how do i love the doodle? let me count the ways...
i love the doodle because of its honesty. because it grows out of a moment. a quiet moment without the noise in your head that says fix it or finish it.
i love the heart in a doodle, the embodiment of a feeling.
i love the primitive quality of a doodle, a scribble done with the minimum of contrivance with the intent to record.
i love how a doodle is always new. and how it is always yours.
.....i love the fleeting speed of doodles, the closeness to that first whisper of a thought. keepers.
i love the abandonment of a doodle and how it is so free in the moment when you think no one is looking. a visual diary.
i love the possibility of a doodle, the first step of many and today maybe all the steps in one.
....today i took a chance and tried this technique, combining two things i really love. doodling and quilting... and eliminating a lot of steps of the journey in between.
