Swamps are messy things. They’re wild and untamed, life unfettered. This is a great prompt for me right now. I hours away from Spring Break and the daily grind of teaching high school students. While I love my students, I also need time away from the regimen of the classroom. My swamp image reflects my mental need to let loose. I’ve thrown together this image using a variety of techniques. It’s a little traditional drawing, some digital painting and some digital collage. It’s a little scattered which is how my brain is acting right now. Yes! It’s time for a break.
