A month of art

Well, Art Every Day Month is coming to an end. I admit that I’m running out of stem. But it has been great trying to create something each day. I spent most of the month working on my version of Zentangles, which I have enjoyed. The best thing about Art Every Day Month is that […]

AEDM (Day 26): Light play

Ah, the holidays. That time of year when little strings of lights drive many to go mad….depending on how tangled those lights are from last Christmas. I spent my day finding out how twisted my little strings of lights became while sitting in a box all year. Funny how they manage to do that. I […]

AEDM (Day 25): Natural beauty

Lazy day today. I took my son to see a movie. I so love going to the movies with him. He’s 12 and growing up and away each day, so I treasure our little moments together. So no art making for me. I just enjoyed the natural beauty of the day—like this sunset on our […]

Happy Thanksgiving!

Family. Friends. Work. Health. Art. Love. So Thankful.

Art Every Day Month (Day 22): Waves

I dreamed I was swept away by waves last night. It’s my typical anxiety dream–perfect for my fear of water. Can you tell from this artwork that I’m feeling anxious this week? There’s nothing specific to be anxious about. Perhaps, it’s an automatic learned response to the holidays. Perhaps, its a survival instinct to prepare […]

AEDM (Day 21): Feeling tired

I’ve been making art these past few days of Art Every Day Month, but I have been lazy about posting. I almost didn’t post this one today. Sometimes it’s easier to make the art than mustering up the energy to scan it in. For some reason, I feel wiped out today. But here it is.

AEDM (Day 18): Lost and found

I thought I had lost this painting, which I began working on a couple of weeks ago. It began as a simple drawing on canvas and I worked it to what I thought was a point of no return. But I couldn’t just leave it there. So I kept going in my effort to rescue […]

AEDM (Day 17): Aha!

I’m noticing something very important about making art every day for Art Every Day Month. Art quickly becomes a habit once you really start doing it. At the start of this month, there was a lot of fretting on my part about what I would do, when I would do it, and whether I could […]

AEDM: Day 16

Two more Zentangles for Art Every Day Month. I’m really getting into these now after 16 days. I’m trying different things to to see which approach I like best. I keep thinking  these would make great quilting squares–if I knew how to get them transferred onto fabric, AND if I knew how to sew. I […]

AEDM (Day 14)

Busy day. Keeping things simple.
