There is good and bad in coming home from a great vacation.
The good: Sleeping in my own bed, snuggling with my cats, eating my normal food, getting back into a routine.
The bad: I can’t create art or play Pokemon Go whenever I want.
I had a great time last week visiting family and friends in Colorado. We are a road-tripping family, so the drive there and back provided ample time for me to create some new art on my iPad Pro. And I had access to new things to photograph and some people who were willing to experiment with me.
Add that all together, toss with the techniques I’ve been playing with from Bob Weil’s online class, and voila! You have a new direction in my art. I call this one: She Opens Her Own Doors.
There will definitely be more in this series. You can visit me on Instagram or my newsletter to see these unfold. And if you would like to learn how to create this type of layered collage art, the special offer on iPhoneography with Bob Weil is still available until July 17. Visit here to learn more.
And yes, I am playing Pokemon Go! My son and I used to collect and play with Pokemon cards when he was little, so this is another fun way to connect with him at fifteen. With a teenager, you just can’t miss these opportunities. Yesterday I made it to Level 9 and joined a gym in the area I like to hike.
This is one more fun thing to do with the iPhone. If you haven’t played yet, consider giving it a try. It gets you out walking around, and while you play you are getting exercise and can take photographs to use in your art. See you on the streets!
