That image I posted yesterday? It a close up of a glass oil candle; I took the wick out for a better image. Audra came really close: she guessed jelly candle.
That was entirely fun! I am going to have to play with abstract images a little more. I’ve been looking around the house for fun objects that I have have fun “abstracting.” Something about that sounds fun to me.
When I did more acrylic painting on canvas a couple years ago, I loved doing abstract self-portraits and just abstract art in general. It was very southwestern (modeled after a style in the southwestern part of the US) and I live in the southeast. Here in the southeast, you’re doing well if you can sell images of seashells and birds, and even mountain scenes. However, once I figure out how to adapt my style so that I’m not trying to appeal people to buy Anasazi art – especially since we’re 1,500 miles away.
But, I headed off on some artistic tangent there.
Apparently artists do that. They might even try to photograph or paint their interpretation of a tangent. Just please don’t ask them to sine or cosine – I might make a natural log, though. A log of memories!
I will post more about my writing progress this weekend. But, in order to have writing fodder and pictures to share, you have to go out and do stuff.
A group of us headed to a place called Tsali today and did about 16 miles of mountain biking. I am content and tired, especially since I expertly crashed backwards down a hill (I swear I’m too good at that) and ran into some briars. Now it looks like I have some badly painted pink tattoos across my arms and legs. I like mountain biking…right?
Because I did all that, I’m going to keep this post short tonight. I’ll come back tomorrow with two updates on writing the NaNo stuff (it’s steamy…) and going to this gorgeous place where we spent the day just riding.
