Every spring like most folks I get my busy on in the cottage, gardens, and farm. Dusty sheer curtains need washing as well as the windows and tracks. The barn needs sprucing up for new baby goaties, the flower gardens tidied and the vegetable garden prepped for seeding. The list goes on doesn’t it?
It was a natural step for me then to direct a little attention to sprucing up my blog just a tad bit. Just a little shining up akin to a fresh coat of paint to the old wooden porch. At least it makes me smile and keeps the creative juices flowing right?
I have always admired the simple line art of an early 20th century Artist, Paul Klee. His work was inspired by the beauty and innocence of children’s art which was the muse for much of his work. I feel the same and why I can’t part with any drawing lovingly presented to me by my grandchildren!
This piece by Paul Klee and photos of the artist and his life can be found here.
The method he practiced here was of trying to draw one continuous line to form the picture. He called drawing like this from a single point on a page as “taking a dot for a walk”. And I love it!
I didn’t quite fulfill the scope of Paul Klee’s method but I’m satisfied with the simplicity I captured in conveying life here at Panther Creek Cottage. I hope you like it too.
Happy Spring to you! And may God bless you with many creative moments too!
