Beyond The Creative Mind

I started a project tonight.  It was meant to be a simple experiment.

In a week (Friday, Sept. 6th), I will give an artist talk / demonstration at the store where my art hangs (Patricia's Wellness Arts Cafe in Bloomington, IN).

 

I thought it would be fun to bring along crayons and mini canvases for visitors to try melting wax.  I wanted to make sure that I could instruct them to do so in a way that would prevent splatters.  (My studio is usually a mess - I wanted to protect both the visitors and Patricia's store floor!)

The crayon melting worked out wonderfully.

 

When I was finished, I decided I wanted to add a layer of beeswax and a bit of text.

 

I started out wanting to add "Believe" ... but I'm not really sure "believe" is a word I believe in.

So I moved to "Live".  

I'd already started adding the wax word when, "Live the questions" popped into mind.

So on my little magic wax wand moved....and when I got down to the "t" in the final word, something far beyond my intellectual mind made the first little parenthetical mark.

And boom.

 

  

 

"Live the QUEST (ion)"

AH HAH.

Yes.


Yes.

 

 

 

Namaste.
