It's All a Blur to Me

Sometimes I quite like photos that aren't in focus...even when it doesn't happen intentionally:

Looking down on Sophie in the tub
What I DON'T like is how "blurry" my vision has been lately when it comes to painting and drawing. 

Today brought me two new (potential) opportunities:

1. Paint an army helmet for the True Patriot Love Foundation which will then be auctioned off with proceeds going to Canadian military families;
2. Paint a Muskoka chair that will be auctioned off to raise money for Neilson Park Creative Centre in Etobicoke.

I have to say that it's gotten the creative juices flowing, and I'm actually getting ideas and images in my mind that are not as frustratingly blurry as they've been for me recently.  They're almost clear, and it feels wonderful.

I haven't yet decided whether or not to do either, but given the ideas I'm getting PLUS the fact that doing either of them would help to raise money for a good cause, I am very tempted to do at least one.

I'll be sure to keep you posted ;) 


  1. Debra, that's so cool!! Oh, you should definitely do both! lol I would love to see what you do!

  2. Thank you Kim...I'm thinking that perhaps you should do one or both of them as well, hmmm? ;)
