Ghoulies and Ghosties - Day 222 of 365 project

Okay - this is just a first draft, but I did really well on the lettering and the design! Next draft will be on a different paper - the text interferes too much for me with this. Also, the pen kept wanting to tear the paper. Oh well! Life is an experiment!

Business Card draft #3

Well, I think I got it with this draft! Now all I have to do is add the contact information as text (not calligraphing it because too hard to read) and put in a couple of pictures of my artwork. Then I can get cards printed and VOILA! Ready for the Kern County Fair!

Day 48/365 project (Stay by the Tree)

One of the talks at General Conference made a big impression on me. 

When I came back from college, my mind was swirling with all the different things I'd been taught. I was a chaotic mental mess. In church that same weekend, I heard a talk about staying in the center, the mainstream and not worrying about the "mysteries". The "mysteries" were always the topic of conversation in my art classes. I think it made people feel deep to talk about stuff they didn't understand.

Anyway, I ditched thinking about the mysteries and focused on the mainstream. It was a "getting back to basics" approach to mental stillness that I still use today. This talk was along similar lines - stay out of the mysteries and the deep raging waters of speculation and doubt. The story refers to Lehi's Dream in 2 Nephi of the Book of Mormon. It is about the Tree of Life and staying close to it rather than exploring the dark and dreary wilderness of the world.

I like that. Here's my first day's attempt:

Day 47 of #365 project

Now that I see I can do art steadily for 46 days, I want to try doing a 365 project. Eek!

Anyway, still into the stars...
