Spread 153- Make Do November 23, 2011

Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.

Sometimes too many tools, supplies, and materials, hinder me from finding myself in my art. Sometimes multitude of ideas, concepts, and grand plans, muffle my voice. Sometimes having fewer options may seem to pose a challenge when in fact it leads me to the purest form of my expression. I try to make do with what I’ve got. I try to focus on the ‘making’ and on the ‘doing’ rather than on creating ‘special effects,’ illusions. I know from my experience that my truest most honest work comes from a lack of…

Happy thanks giving to what we already have.

This makes so much sense. Too many options and supplies can be overwhelming. This spread is magnificent. From color to texture. Happy Thanksgiving!

Your words remind me of my relatives who knew how to make do with what they had =-)

I think ‘making do’ with what is available is at the heart of CREATIVITY! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday Orly!

Bright, bold, beautiful, and abundant! The paradox of choice….sometimes we need to see less to make more. We already have more than enough, especially when we have ourselves and each other….making do is making deliciousness. Happy Thanksgiving with gratitude for you in my life, and sending love to those I have met through you. Arlene

Truth is simple.
That’s what I hear.
I love your sweet, honest mind and heart.

You have hit the nail on the head, as usual. You say what you need to say, simply and without being self obsessed, and then when I read it, I think to myself, why didn’t I write that, because you seem to be able to write what is in my heart.

orliginality! that’s one bit of wisdom i’ve battled to hold steadfast to for my entire life. the visual on this post is so powerful and appropriate. to my eyes it portrays four explosively independent quadrants or entities that access one another via subtle or minimal passageways, which is, to me, precisely a manifestation of going the distance with what little you have to go on. you ain’t earned it if came easy.
