On this 17th day of the Art Every Day Month challenge, I had some good moments and, shall we say, some contrasting moments.
I completed the glazing in my bathroom (Day 15 and Day 16) which softened the turquoise color and gave it a subtle texture. I’m very pleased with how it came out! My wonderful husband, Tom, was a huge help with this process. I’ll post a final photo once I finish the ceiling. Oh, I found some new cabinet knobs at Anthropologie, and I want to make a frame for my mirror. Then, I decided I definitely need a new turquoise rug. It is amazing how giving a room a new color inspires a ripple effect of new ideas.
As Leah suggested in the Survival Tips, I went on a Artist Date which I’m very familiar with. Years ago, I took a workshop from Julia Cameron in New York. Around ten years ago, I wholeheartedly worked throough The Artist Way with a group of marvelous, creative women. So, I knew just what my Artist Date should be today. I grabbed my camera and wondered around the neighborhood. There was a pink rose bush that I especially wanted to photograph. Then, I found myself drawn to lots of pink flowers. I believe there are some painted pink roses in my future.
I futzed around with a painting I posted yesterday, the one with circles and lots of spills. Even though I was jazzed to try out writing some words in ink, it just didn’t work out. This was especially a bummer since the last time I tried this same process, I ended up posting some bad art! I guess it is time to bring out the gesso to paint over this baby. Maybe the third time will be the charm!
