Subconscious expression

Milliande Is tired of zebras, but I am not.  I am still injecting them into these assignments.  Today, she asked us to "take our lines for a walk", which is to say, start making marks and let them tell you what they want to be.

I started by making random blocks of color with my Portfolio water soluble oil pastels (I need a shorter name for these), then activating the color with a wet brush.  I walked away while the paint dried, and when I came back, the shapes suggested to me an old style arcade video game. 

If you knew anything about my weekend, you would know why I felt the need to do this.  It isn't great art, but it is excellent therapy.  I apologize in advance to anyone visiting my blog for pretty pictures.

hmmm...sounds like a bad weekend but I do actually really, really like this. I would've just sat, uninspired - this is terrific.
