Inspired by Australian artist Lorna Crane, I made some handmade brushes with materials I foraged from the forest.
This was such a fun project! It felt so free, where there were no rules and no way to get it wrong.
8 Reasons I wanted to try this
✔️ it disrupts habitual marks (introducing surprise)
✔️ it provides unique marks (not store bought)
✔️ it’s fun (and that’s good for the soul)
✔️ it connects me to the land where I live (❤️Montana)
✔️ it links me to the artists/people who came Long before me (before brushes were manufactured)
✔️ its resourceful (and I like that)
✔️ it’s also like cross training for an athlete (exercising alternate muscles, enhances performance in their main sport)
✔️ it was a good way to practice some storytelling and learn how to create videos
