My Summer of Art and Creativity

It’s June!! Now that summer is upon us, I am feeling blissfully excited to create magical, beautiful things. There is a small handful of projects I want to take on over the next three months, and I’ll be sharing my progress on Instagram and social media.

Here are the upcoming projects in a nutshell.

Creative Thesis Project
The biggest project I am tackling is one related to school. This is a sizable undertaking that will require a large amount of thought, time, and effort. Work begins this month. More on that later.

Photography
Some of you may have noticed the photos of flowers I’ve been posting on social media. Those photos are the result of my tinkling around with my new DSLR camera which is a Nikon D5600. I want to get better at photography, and I’ll be posting more floral and landscape photos.

Stippling
You may recall the pointillism art that I have done in the past. Here is an example of one of my pieces:
I want to start a new piece, and I am trying to decide what it will be. I may or may not incorporate some watercolor. These pieces take a long time to finish, and I will probably just take my time with it. We’ll see. I’ll be posting my progress on it on Instagram once I get started.

Where Pianos Roam

Finally, there will be a new season of my whimsical side project, in which I document the exploits of a traveling miniature grand piano and her rowdy bench.  I’m hoping the new vignettes will start appearing in late July across all social media.

Visual Poems
I am working on integrating my music and poetry with visual video vignettes. This is one of the first steps in this direction.  I have lots of ideas I want to try out. Look for the first video vignette to launch from my youtube page soon.


So, that’s my upcoming summer in a nutshell. I will not have a full schedule of classes to contend with, and my cat Steinway already has me penciled into his schedule for daily feedings, cuddling, and poop-scooping. Sigh.

What are you doing this summer?
