|The Pop Art Portrait|
As adults, I think we always feel like our play needs to produce a result. At least I feel that way most times.
Play is just the result in itself. Play is play. If we have something to show the world fine and great. If not, oh well. Ask any kid playing. "What is your result of all your playing ?" I'll bet you they will look at you cockeyed and puzzled. Yes, I got a painting out of my playing. Is it art gallery quality? No. But I like it. And I had fun. I went to the class to learn something new and to play. I did just that. I think kids playing are also, on some level, learning about themselves, their world...life. At very least they are connected to the moment and I hope, having fun!
I will be painting more. I already purchased the canvas boards and I'm hoping Santa slips a small set of acrylic paints and some good brushes in my stocking. I want to perfect the techinque and have much more fun. I'm even thinking that doing costume renderings might start to be more fun and less of a task. All from a bit of play.
When was the last time you had playtime? Is it time for play?
Until next week...create to feel great.
10 projects complete. 42 to go!
