I write this little saying all the time because it is just so true for me. It is so amazing to me how different (and better) my art is when it comes spontaneously and serendipitously straight out of my heart. Most (99%) of the art I post on my art du jour blog is created this way. I have had to do many commissions and other art on demand throughout the years and although I love my art and love to create it, if it is "on demand" from an outside source I feel that it is forced and contrived. I don't think the viewer can see (I hope not!) it but I sure can.
This was written quickly with my new fabulous Pentel Pocket cartridge brush fountain pen. I also got out my Pan Pastels for the sun and one of my favorite stencils. I should do that more often because that was awesomely fun!
So today was quick and fun = art du jour!
