On the spur of the moment I realized that I had a pic that I could use for this weeks IF. "Dinoland" was from a series of illustrations that I called"Whimsy art" When I created this piece I was doing artshows and festivals around town. I had a children's booth with pictures, puzzles, placemats, cards and bookmarks. I also started doing a lot of writing at that time.
I like the word "Whimsy" and "In the land of Whimsy". To me, being in the land of Whimsy is a state of mind, it's where I can just let go and create for the pure joy of the process. It's not always an easy place to get to, it's kind of like meditation. It's hard for me to just allow myself to relax enough to get there, but when I do, it really can set the tone for my day.
So that's how the blog title became. Have a good day and may a bit of "whimsy" be with you!
