The past couple weeks I've not managed to post my art every day. Life is very full, and on some days, I just chose to do something other than post.
But I HAVE chosen to paint every day. That is what has made the most impact on me in this challenge. The first significant step was giving myself the freedom to play. But as the days rolled on, I found that I NEEDED to paint each day, in order for the day to feel complete. That is the feeling that has endured. And it's rippled out: as of August 1st, my print journal turned into an art journal; Little signs and reminders around the house are painted; when I'm not quite sure what to do next, I often drift to my art table and something gets color splopped onto it.
I love this. And I also wonder: with not quite 30 days left in the challenge, what other changes might evolve in my life, related to my playing with watercolors every day?
Day 72--Tuesday's offering is a teaser. To see the whole piece, click on over to http://thursdaysweettreat.blogspot.com/ and see how a gifted bunch of artists responded to "purple passion" as their creative prompt.
Day 73--I really like today's work. Not a single conscious intent guided me when I started--I just splooshed around with my favorite "aquamaureen" shades . . . .and then, lo and behold, to MY eye, the finished piece is Maureen's version of a Mercator-style map, showing my dream world . . . where most everything is ocean or beachfront land . . . where days are sun-kissed and nights moon-sparkled . . . and where cabana boys LOVE to bring me juicy fresh fruit . . . hey, a girl can dream, can't she???
