This is partially a check in for Art Every Day Month, 2014. I hope you'll take the time to "hang out" here with me as I tell a brief tale of my creative week.
Today has been a remarkable day.
I haven't done a single thing I didn't want to do.
I've had a great attitude all day long. I basically decided nothing could possibly upset me so therefore it didn't.
I need to remember this day.
What happened as a result of staying rooted in what I wanted to do rather than reacting or responding like the perpetually angry people I sometimes meet was I created a lot.
I built layer upon layer with several different mixed media projects. The one above is a snippet from a larger piece and I'm completely unsure what my point is with the piece, but for now I am just being random and haphazard and would probably drive my more professional artsy friends crazy.
Tomorrow the kids don't have school which means I don't have to do any Momschlep. I do have to go to work for a couple hours (a rarity, since I usually completely create my own schedule!) I'm praying this week is different from last week in that I want to spend a lot of time creating and a lot less time worrying.
