I do a lot of sketching in between projects. When I am working on a commission or special order, I think, "when I am done with this I will work on (fill in the blank)" and then the time comes and I, well blank. So the best thing to do during those dry seasons when those ideas just aren't there, I pull out my sketchbook and pencils, nothing fancy, and just draw...
My cat from life ...
Deer from photos....
Dart frogs from photos...
Sometimes, when those dry seasons happen I like to work on a totally different type of art or craft, like crochet or needle felting, or paper crafts. I'll leave those for a future post!
What do you do? I'd love to hear about it!
I am Jenn Avery, gourd artist of 20+ years. I have been a multi-disciplinary artist all my life, and my work has taken many twists and turns and many directions. Gourd pyrography has become my passion, but I love to experiment with all kinds of art and crafts. It gives me joy to pass on my enthusiasm for making art that makes people happy!
