I loved that this was the theme for both Illustration Friday and Inspire Me Thursday was "Leap" this week. I find it to be an inspiring word and I knew I had to do some art with it. It's been ages since I've done one of these challenges and it felt good to be inspired to join in them this week. I also really liked Inspire Me Thursday's art calendar challenge this week. Very cool idea!
I made the above piece with acrylic paint on watercolor paper. More houses, I know, I'm really stuck on the house imagery right now. I've got two other pieces started with houses in them too. Even the birthday card I bought for my mom referenced home. Certain symbols come and go and I like to just follow where it leads me. These symbols usually have something to tell me about what's going on under the surface. This is what I love about making art.
