(This entry is for my goal of 52 books in 52 weeks.)
I was sooooooo excited when my book arrived last week! Kelly Rae Roberts is an artist I found on etsy- selling her original work. I love her pieces- but never bought anything. I was more of a stalker.
Then one day- I went to visit- and she had MOVED!
Her new site: http://kellyraeroberts.com/ is her new home to showcase her work.
And there I found she had published a book!
Taking Flight: Inspiration and Techniques to give your Creative Spirit Wings.
I ordered it right away from Amazon and have been waiting curb side at the mailbox waiting for it to come!
I soooo wanted to see her methods! How she found her "artistic identity".
I am an arts and crafts type person...
but I don't feel like I've found my "artistic identity" yet.
I dabble here and there with drawing and such..
but I don't have a "style" that is "ME".
I might be like Grandma Moses and find my artistic identity in my 80's.
And that is fine.
I am content with that.
A time and season for everything.
I don't have to "know" everything about myself right NOW.
In fact- I like that there is more to me to know... and every year I learn more about myself.
If you like her work- You will LOVE her book! It is very clever and insightful. In addition to sharing secrets about how she creates her art... she has other contributing artist who inspire projects to do along with her.
A very fun book. I can't wait to use some of her techniques and create something of my own. Maybe... I'll even post them here... we'll see... I am not so daring as Sarah.
So if you haven't picked up a book in weeks, months, years... why not?
Why not today?
and if you absolutely do not have time today....
at least take a moment to think about a book you would be interested in reading.. and order it!
Be it from the library or store...
Then when it arrives...
You'll have a happy gift to yourself and a reason to curl up in a cozy spot and take a well needed break!
