Review of Abundance
A mixed media collage - final assembly and further processing in Painter IX
This week was called Abundance which was a wonderful co-incidence with Christmas time with its custom of feasting and that of the giving and receiving of presents.
Most of my art this week was the art of arranging decorations on mantelpieces and general putting up of decorations and making the main rooms as lovely as possible.
Therefore most of this week's picture reflects Christmas directly.
I added in slices of watermelon as a natural symbol of abundance that happens to have good Christmas colours.
It is the last week in which I've followed the Artist's Way as given in the book. The next three weeks will retain their titles of Connection, Strength and Compassion but the focus for each will change; I'll be doing exercises from other sources. I will continue to do my morning pages and doodles and noting synchronicities. Also I will continue to review the week on Tuesday and open the next theme on Wednesday.
Its been great redoing the first 6 weeks of the Artist's Way and I've a good feel for where I need to go next.
I may not get to do my posting for Connection until the weekend as we've guests and I may not get to blog until after they've all gone; its hard enough finding time to do morning pages!
