Week in Review: 2/12/16-2/18/16
I am currently enrolled in two art e-courses, so I have been doing some painting along with my LEGO creations.
One of the things I noticed is that I am much more free starting out with a painting. It's all about just getting paint and texture and variety on there and you can always cover it up later, in fact you usually do (which is a whole other part of the creative process).

But with building I noticed I will sit staring at my bins of blocks for a while before starting. I'll wait until I have an idea of a direction from the quote. What am I afraid of? I mean it's even easier than with painting because if I don't like the direction it's going in I just take it off. I mean it can be a little annoying if they stick and I have to use the special LEGO remover piece, but still.
I mean the whole point is to play and see what happens. Flora Bowley, one of my art e-course teachers said this:
"Remember, the more we play and explore without 'finished product' in mind, the more we discover along the way."
So that is what I am going to try and do this week, check in next week to see how it went.
