What inspires me most about creating art “on the road,” is the opportunity of being creative in new ways using the basic tools that I have. I have a beautiful sketchpad, a small set of acrylic paints, ebony pencils, erasers, canvas paper, a compact digital camera and my newest creative tool, the ipad. And while I complain at times about the limitations of the ipad, in comparison to my beautiful imac back in Ojai, I have found it to be a surprisingly wonderful tool. Several of the images below are drawings that I have hand drawn in my sketchpad, then photographed and uploaded into a really fun and creative art program called Art Studio. Others, I created directly in Art Studio using their painting and drawing tools. I have also painted a few paintings on canvas paper, which has been a really great adventure, as well! I will share some of those paintings in future blog posts. Enjoy!
