Week Twenty Two of My Weekly Creative Challenge

Week Twenty Two makes me feel
"All Dreamy"

Well Week Twenty Two is the beginning of staying on course with the create process that will spark 2010. I have been working on a series of drawing that will launch my creative process for 2010. Sometimes you have to get back to basics and drawing out my pieces is how I began to focus on designing. Around a week ago I saw one of my teachers from Maryville University. Her name is Leslie and she was my Ceramics teacher. I loved her class and the one thing she pointed out to me was the importance of drawing out my concepts first. She really enjoyed my sketch books . So I went home and pulled out a couple of those books and took a stroll down memory lane. I realized how much I missed working in clay and how much I missed sketching out all my designs. It was fun looking at how I came up with the pieces I did back then. So I decided to do a series of 24 sketches of necklace and pendant designs to work from for the rest of the year. It will be fun to see how the pieces develop from the drawing stage to the final pieces. This is the first of this series. It's my "Deep Purple Dream" (Yes I did like" Donny and Marie" as a child). Well, anyway Enjoy!

Take care and keep Creating!!!!!
