Full Worm Moon

27 Mar

IMAG1584-1

 

I finally finished this piece that sat in the back of my closet for at least a year. Sometimes the inspiration leaves me and I have to wait for it to come back. I was doing fifteen other things this evening when I thought about this piece and pulled it out to finish. I enjoy incorporating texture into plain pencil drawings. I like contrast, and I strive to carry it out in a way that doesn’t cheapen it.

The moon is full tonight, making me feel restless and a little overwhelmed with nothing.

Diy Tea Organizing

4 Mar

Hi there tea drinkers! If you are reading this I assume you have also longed for a little more organization in the tea area. I never longed for such a thing until I suddenly found myself with four boxes of tea. My kitchen is rather small and cupboard space hardly exists, so I really didn’t have anywhere to put them. They stayed on the counter underneath the little shelf that holds my coffee pot and supplies, no room for anything else up there.

Crayon Art And Starving Artists

11 Feb

Hi there y’all! I feel like I have had quite a productive day. After work I wrote in my book for a few hours (yes, I am writing (another) book!), I made some art and I played my drums for a while. Sometimes I understand why artists starve. I love my job, but it sure puts a kink in my artistic flow. If I get going in the morning I always have to stop to go to work. I have been late (by minutes) to work more than once because I was trying to stop writing, painting etc.

The thought of being able to follow my mind all day scares and intrigues me. It makes me wonder what I could really get done if I took the time. I spent a while alone once, and it was the most productive time of my life. What’s a girl to do?

This is what I made this evening.
