When the incredible Lisa Pace asked me to participate in her "My Life in a Dinghy" blog feature, i immediately said yes. Her blog feature has so many talented artist including Suze Weinberg, Candy Rosenberg, Stephenie Hamen, Tammy Tutterow, Donna Salazar, Hels Sheridan, Richele Christensen, and Paula Cheney.
Lisa provided all of us the template using a toliet paper roll, or in my case a paper towel roll as it was sitting on my desk. I have to admit it was a challenge for me but i love that it pushed me out of my comfort zone. I created my colorful boat using my stencils and Gelli Arts Gelatin Prints.
She also wanted to know what our "Life in a Dinghy" would look like. Well, I have wandering toes that explore this wonderful world of ours, seeing the art of life. I always want to find the beauty and passions surrounding me and add them to my soul, just like this colorful patchwork dinghy. I have a deep thirst for knowledge of life so the inside of my dinghy is filled with pages from books which have taken me to so many different worlds and walks of life. In my Dinghy I would go where the winds would take me, not knowing where I would end up but just enjoying the journey. My sail might not be perfect, in fact it has weathered some storms that have left the canvas forever changed. But it is full of stories and can always be patched for another journey.
Make sure you check Lisa's blog daily not only to see all the other artists' inspiring pieces but at the end of the journey, she's going to share the template with you.
