Studio Friday: A-HA Moment


This week's topic for Friday June 16th suggested by Pamela: A-HA MOMENT

" I'm sure we've all had a moment when we're creating something we've had in mind and then something totally different results by accident."Pamela

My A-HA moment came during a paste paper play extravaganza a few weeks ago. Tired of brushing the paint onto the paper, I drizzled black over my green and yellow. But, "Oh, no, what a mess I've created." The A-HA struck as I grabbed a comb and dragged it through, creating a pattern that was uniquely my own!

Gotta love those "mistakes!"

When a mistake is an 'ah-ha!', it really brings things into perspective for me. It shows me that even if something doesn't go as I originally planned, it CAN be useful and even AWESOME!!
Great job!!

What a great "mistake"....sometimes our own head gets in the way of our creativity. If we can just quit thinking and just do it, then some truly innovative things can happen. And this piece is proof positive of that!

There is a GREAT children's picture book called "The Big Mistake". A must for any child at heart who is waiting for those a-ha moments.

Fantasic! I love the abstract look - you can "see" images in the outlines and really get lost in it! Terrific! Thanks for sharing!!

Wow, I really love this! It looks like a person in the foreground working away with another in the upper right looking on. Extremely cool!
