I can't show you much more of this "top secret" project I've been working on but I'm not great at keeping secrets where it concerns my work so I'm spilling a few beans. This project has to do with lucky charms...personal magical juju and fetishes. I'm not at all suspicious and don't believe that objects hold any kind of power but there are certain things that hold deep meaning for me. These are a few of them (no surprises here!).
Isn't this the cutest little stone heart? This was another gift from Number Two son (number one and number two being simply an easy way to reference the sons...it's just their birth order, not the order in which I love them...I promise! Plus, it's better than calling them Thing One and Thing Two). Number Two is always on the lookout for stones, sticks, bones and stray rusty metal junk that I can use in my art. He's an artist in his own right (all three of my guys are very talented that way) so he understands the creative drive. Here's a piece of his work:
Isn't it terrific? I couldn't do this if I spent 5 years on a scratchboard piece! Not to leave anyone out, Number One presented me with this terrific pen and ink drawing recently:
Again, so much more capable at drawing than myself! They must get it from Wife Whisperer. Number One's been exploring digital art lately. He may have a little more learning to do but this piece is nothing if not...interesting!
