My husband, son, and I spent a weekend getaway with some friends in Mt. Rainier. I created today’s sketch while there. Which should also explain why it is so late. We just got home and the cabin had no scanner or wifi.
As you may or may not know, I have a new year’s resolution to post something arty every day. I did this to encourage daily practice and when I did this in 2015, I saw some really great growth.
However, today was a challenge. I am tired and the marks were just not landing. I don’t know if you can tell in this image but there were a lot of lines before I added the final Stabilo marks. While trying to turn my lines into something even a little interesting, I was thinking about Elizabeth Gilbert’s book: “Big Magic“. It is about creating living beyond fear, inspiration, trust -etc. (It was a good book.) I enjoy creating and wanted to work despite my lack of inspiration. I also thought about Elizabeth Warren and “Nevertheless, she persisted”. I know this is quote is for something much bigger than my daily art practice but today…today, it was a reminder I needed in order to push through.
I feel like doing some writing on clowns. I really like them.
