Vein, a drawing challenge
Inside I have weak veins. The thin, blue lines lie shallow under my skin. Each time someone needs to draw some blood I become the human pincushion as one vein after another collapses under the pressure. It’s OK, I’m used to it. I breathe deeply and focus on the moment when it’s all over. It takes ages!
Inside I have strong veins. The rich, crimson of my creativity runs heavy and deep. Each time I pick up the camera, a pencil, my brushes, these veins take over, command my hands and stay strong under pressure. I’m hardly aware that I’m breathing, Time stands still.
Come follow this beautiful vein of creativity to: Ariane, Lisa, Tammie, Renilde, Nadine, Katrin, Eric, Kim, Marian, Roberto, Sharmon, Sabine, and maybe Patrice and Annton.
And Katrin is our host for next weekend, Feb 28th, March 1st with Birthday Cake!
Art: Mixed media painting, collaged paper, acrylics, oils, inks, a few vintage postage stamps

We are lucky indeed. 😀 Thank you very much.
excellent description for what creativity does to us. your collage does speak for itself. i am naturally drawn to the woman’s dreamy pensées. this theme made me think, and next the words just rolled out. talking ’bout tapping the vein… ;))) n?
v, i figured by now the comments section doesn’t accept html, and i’d had some added to my comment. sorry for troubling you. x
No problem Nadine. I’m glad it’s sorted out. 😀
Thank you so much. I was drawn to her too! I love that we both had/worked on the Julia Cameron books. 😀
I like your collage with all kind of references. Wonderful photo. The veins in the leaves where also on my mind.
Thanks for hosting this inspiring theme. – eric

and art flows from deep within my veins too

Beautiful interpretation! I did finally publish mine, though a bit late – I apologize!
That’s fantastic! I’m so very happy you could join and I love it. Remember, there are no rules and everyone is very happy you could join at any time. 😀 x
Beautiful collage and words, and what a spectacular vein filled leaf! Thanks for a theme that had me thinking!
Dear Veronica, what a wonderful collage. Also your invitation was great!
Thanks you for the theme
awesome collage and i would hope by now the phlebotomist would know to use the butterfly needle … i know about this ’cause my mom had the worst time having blood drawn …
I’ve had one or two successful phlebs get it on the first try (that’s a success rate of about 5%). Usually it was because they work with mom and were shaking in their boots. 😀
“your veins take over and command your hands!”
And I realize that it is good that way. because your art is excellent!
