I wanted to write a fantastic, tying all this art together sort of post for the final day of Art Every Day Month, though I am a creator one day and poster the next so I will actually post whatever work I do today tomorrow… but when I woke up this morning, I thought… there is nothing more perfect than posting my work-in-progress assemblage I began during Thanksgiving weekend and actually started to build last night.
I started last week with collecting and writing.
When I packed my things, I tucked these treasures from the sea in my fisherman’s cap and waited. I waited. I waited. I wanted to feel something before I started.
Last night I had been sitting at my computer writing and networking, networking and writing. I needed a break before a twitter party and quick writing sprint.
I found a foundation – a simple wooden salad bowl. But I needed to paint it. I brought it inside the house to dry and promptly dropped it on my kitchen floor. Creating can be such a difficult mistress.
There was paint on my floor but I immediately grabbed a mop and cleared it up.
It was time for the assembly to begin. I built it on a piece of cardstock which I will cut and cover when it is complete. This was such fun – I wish you could smell it. The rock on top is a heart shaped rock I picked up as a memory of my dear friend Tom.
So simple, yet so just right – just as Art Every Day Month has been this year.
Thank you so much for being here with me. I’m counting on the Monday check in for Creative Every Day – I don’t want my momentum to slow at all.
YOU ROCK!! Congratulations, woot woot TA-DA! And all the rest. Please keep on touch via twitter and facebook (see below) or ofcourse on the weekly checkins.
THANK YOU, Leah! I have loved continuing this process. It just keeps getting better!
