Good morning! I actually don't know which day of Art Every Day we are supposed to be on. What I do know is that I went upstairs yesterday and did at least a month's worth (at my current rate). It's the weirdest thing to be suddenly swept up with inspiration after nothing for so long. It's kind of like those African rainy seasons where the ground is cracked and the fish a struggling to breath without water when the floods finally come.
I actually did three pieces and prepped a background to try to execute a little sketch idea I had. All three completed projects had been mistakes that were lying around taunting me with their ugliness. I didn't get a good shot of all of them, but this is my favorite:
I had the little serious looking gray tabby painted out and was holding up the canvas looking at him and saying to him, "What do you want on your head?" Just over the edge of the canvas, I saw my little bird tracing guide that I've used in the past stuck to my white board. "Ahh! A birdie!" Because once I'm sitting at my desk, I'm not too keen to get up, I looked around at my feet for some scrapbook paper or something to make the bird from. A printed photo from our vacation to Montana a couple of years ago was close at hand. Bluesky Birdie looks good, I think! :)
I'll show you the other things sometime soon, I'm sure. My ground might become parched again before the month is over.
I must now get ready for my real job. May the Lord bless you today with blue skies and birdies to share them with.
