It seems like I've been "clearing my very full plate" forever so that I can get back to making art. Meanwhile, I've been without a camera for over a month. All of this by way of saying: Forgive me for the lengthy hiatus from here; I hope to not be away so long again.
Finally, I found some time this past weekend to ease back into creating while visiting my daughter. I took a small sketchbook to her home and proceeded to make some simple potato prints while she worked on a painting, knowing that I would at least be able to fit the prints on my scanner. Nothing too demanding on my end, and certainly no high expectations. Still, the fact is that creating even the simplest works of art or craft requires thoughtful decisions throughout the process, and those who don't participate in the artistic creative process often don't appreciate that fact. And actually, it's that problem-solving process that makes the act of creation so stimulating and engaging. Well, at least that's my take on it. :)
