Big Decisions

Yellow Portable Brother Typewriter

I started this art journal page today and I may work on it some more.

I’ve been wanting to do more pieces with typewriters, so today I tried hand-drawing my Brother typewriter from a photograph. I’m pretty happy with the results as I consider myself more of a photo-based artist. I even used watercolor to fill in the colour, which again is not something I have a lot of experience with.

The title and text for this piece was inspired by Julia Cameron’s book Finding Water: The Art of Perseverance. It always amazes me how relevant her writing is to whatever I’m going through artistically. And in the morning, reading a few paragraphs from the book always provides inspiration.

Are you making any Big Decisions this year? I am!
