You might have noticed how sparse the text is in my blog posts... Not really my favorite activity, I struggle to communicate effectively in text.
And yet I am gearing up to launch a web site, studionysha.com (not operational yet!). A professional is actually building the site and I have to create the content. I don't just want images so that requires writing!
Taking a break from writing content I was watching the DVD that accompanies Making Your Mark by Claire Benn and Leslie Morgan
http://www.committedtocloth.com/
While watching the DVD I was inspired to do some auto writing or free writing - done to create a pattern. Here are some examples.
Writing in vertical and horizontal likes writing over the top of text to create a darker line and obscure the text.
Applying the ideas of cross hatching to text. Can I make a sphere sit in space?
Randomly curving lines of text used to suggest a form with a little added colour.
 Not sure where the text idea will go from here, but love the ideas of creating with text. Stay tuned!
If you live in the United States and would like to study with Claire and Leslie they teach at the Crow Barn on occasion,

Click on Art Retreats and then Spring 2013.
Happy creating.

what you're doing is one of my favorite things to do that Leslie encouraged me to expand upon! I think the world of both of them! Sending you good vibes on getting the content ready.
