I. Should. Write. More (yeesh!)


(more often, at least)

This is a collage of pieces I've doodled in ballpoint pen, rollerball, colored pencil, graphite, acrylic paints, and large, mangy, one-tip-broken-off metal work scissor cuttings. All done on found papers, utility bill envelopes, canvas, and cardboard. The images 'say' my title.

NOTE: I realized people might think I did this as an art piece after reading one reader's comment; au contraire, I just felt I needed to post *something*, ANYTHING in my blog lest it seem dead (after all, I am not an every day, nor every other day blogger) and needed a visual to go with my title "I Should Write More, (yeesh!)" so went in my files of scanned doodles, pulled out some eyes=I, my butler guy who seems to be demanding something with that pointing finger=should, all the silly fonts=write more, and the girl holding her head=(yeesh!) - - slapped 'em all together and made a collage. :P

Have a nice weekend. :)

Sometimes we really need those spontaneous art outbursts. Love the eye in the left corner. I don't know what it is about utility envelopes, but I find I doodle and write lists on those all the time.

Sandy ... omgolly! What the heck, I headed over two days ago to email you and got sidetracked! Forgive me, will do that next!

Victoria ... oh no, after reading your comment it occurs to me that some might think I posted this image as an actual 'art piece' or 'collage'. It is in fact nothing more than a visual to go along with my title.

Hahahahaha...very clever! I know what you mean about the need to write more! I'm really just off in my own little world and sometimes I surface for a quick note. :)

Lenae, glad I am not alone!

Sandy, I don't know, she just 'looks' like me, I feel. Can't put it into words...she just does. :D
