Watercolor Brainstorming

paint-splatter-rose-001

I’ve been brainstorming and drafting designs for a Zazzle shop (not yet released. Dun dun dun More on that to come I’d wager). This is a draft incorporating my first attempt at straw splattering. I’m happy with how the rose turned out, but plan to scrap the leaves and consolidate the splatters. Exploring and improving it is the point of drafting!

Writer’s Block (poem)

If there’s nothing else to write about,
you can always write about
there being nothing to write about.

Poems. Poems. Poems.
Flowing through my brain,
Turning round the bends and curls,
Getting stuck again.

Blocking. Blocking. Blocking.
The creative thread has snapped.
Try to burst the brain-tube dam
When creativeness is sapped.

Writing. Writing. Writing.
About what’s on my mind:
Writer’s block and poetry
Is the subject that you’ll find.

Reading. Reading. Reading.
Through the lines of verse.
We all know what you’re thinking,
Could this get any worse?
