1. working energetically and devotedly; hard-working; diligent: an industrious person.
2. Obsolete , skillful.
When I first made this resolution at the beginning of the year, I almost changed it because it sounded too general, but I realized that “industrious” was a quality I felt I had lacked in 2012. After reading the definition, it jolted me – I needed to devote my time consistently to being creative . . . and that’s what I’ve been doing during the evenings and weekends.
This weekend, I’ve been experimenting with color and texture on my new set of brooches. At 1st, I was a bit hesitant about how to approach possible designs. I thought about artists like Pollock, Dali, and Mondrian and that got me inspired, so once I let loose and got messy, I was happy with the results. Lots of splatters, globs of paint and geometric designs seem to be the theme with tons of gold, red, prussian blue, turquoise, and lime color combos. I’m currently glazing them and attaching the brooch pins. Can’t wait to post them in my shop!
