Mixed Media Monday – this week’s challenge is to create a piece of art based on/around a song, or piece of music that moves us. I’ve created using Elton John’s “Tiny Dancer” before and it still haunts me. This evening I was talking to DD about her future plans – so much pressure on kids to decide what they want to do before they’ve even experienced life per se. She’s a gifted dancer, but also gifted academically and I can often see her being pulled in two (or more) different directions.
I sincerely hope that she follows her heart and dances, if that’s what she wants. After all, she doesn’t have to stop studying and her future may well lie elsewhere later in life, but for now she will dance, because she “can”…
So here’s the journal page I made, with the Muse upon me, about my “Tiny Dancer”.
I’m not very good at drawing, so the tiny dancer, although drawn freehand, is deliberately very feint!! I’m still a bit unsure about this whole art journalling quest I’m on, but I do enjoy creating these pages, so it’s gotta be good, right? Also, it must be one hell of a lot cheaper than therapy!!!
