Sunday and it's a balmy 78 degrees what better to do than have some friends over and break out the mosaics. I have over twenty boxes of my original handmade tiles left over from my old mosaic tile business. Every now and then we dust them off and make stuff with them.
It starts with the kids .
And before too long everyone joins in.
The fun part is cleaning up after.

I confess I doodle, a lot! in fact if I didn't set my cell phone alarm I would do it all day long till it hurts. I find things get really out of balance when you follow your bliss. This kind of drawing generates a lot of ideas for me though, I call it "no think" drawing. I find the most comfortable chair in the house and quickly get in the zone and I can do about 5 or 6 pages in an hour.
Sometimes I use tissues and pull a design out of my notebook and do a tighter drawing sort of edit drawing.
Most times I just scan the whole page into the computer and I can go in and select out what looks interesting to me. What a piece of work Photoshop is.
