Thhe beginning of a month equals my sharing of drawings as part of the #dailycreating Facebook Group, hostessed by artist Terry Runyan.
At this point, I'd been part of this wonderful group for 2 1/2 years. Members of the group are encouraged to be creative in some way every day. And, if we choose to do so, to share our daily creations with the other members of the group. There is always a prompt list to work from if we choose to. The prompts are optional.
I am sad to say that, along about February, I was starting to become disenchanted with my output for the group. I just don't feel like I'm as driven as I was in the beginning to be creative. I was feeling more and more stress, and the daily drawing of animals/birds -- well, I just wasn't feeling it.
Fortuitously about this time, I came across a form of art that was new to me, although it had been "created" as an art form in 2014. Meant as a stress reliever type of art, it is called Neurographic Art. I watched many videos on this style of creating, and after awhile, I'd become smitten, deciding that this is exactly what I need during this stressful time of my life. So, I started to dabble in it, generally following the instructions I had gleaned from the videos.
Two of the pieces that I am showing you today are what would be loosely considered Neurographic Art. I will label them as such, although they are immediately reccognizable as a departure from my normal work.
Since these first Neurographi Art pieces I dabbled with in February, I have tweaked the way I do it to make it all my own. Soo I just say my work is based on Neurographic Art. Each one takes a few days to finish. In the coming months, I will show you more of these pieces.
As always, I will add above each piece the prompt, if I followed it, as well as any other pertinent information you may find interesting.
Suffice it to say that I am still creating every day; it's just not always in tune with Terry's wonderful prompts.
