Visits from the Muse

30 Dec

rainstickaboriginal_artCreative spurts come and go in my life, and I never know what form the next inspiration will take. Ideas come from left field, or some odd material thing comes into my life that nudges an interesting project. In recent weeks the Muse was generous with her visits. I painted a hand made rain stick in the style of aboriginal art. Voila! Note the nifty additions of beads and feathers.

What have you and the Muse been doing lately? I’m always curious what others are up to.

    How adorable and fun.

    What a flap to men that struggle with itching and constraint in their ties!
