that's the goal! do something creative/inspiring every day in may. i always feel like a good little push will help me though some of those days when i feel like there’s “just not enough time” between being a good mama, wife, friend, exerciser, housecleaner, showerer, (seriously) you know, all that STUFF of LIFE that can come before the oh so important creative ME time. or YOU time. so that’s my challenge to myself, to squeeze in at least a little bit here or there EVERY DAY IN MAY and blog (and intstagram) about it. gulp. it’s happening... you in? wanna join me? #everydayinmay on instagram or link here in the comments.
for me, this means doing something fun/exciting/playful in my studio that has nothing to do with any “real” work deadlines... seems so simple, yet these days i find myself “just painting to paint” less and less, so i’m trying to find my way back and make it a part of my everyday. it’s OH so important and i’d like to make it a regular part of my studio time again.
here’s a little snapshot or two from my creative time today. there wasn’t much as i’m on some tight and stressful deadlines, but i did manage to steal away a bit this afternoon. i used my sketchbook to work on and record some new ideas for paintings.
i also played around a bit on my giant chalk/idea/inspiration board. it helps me sort out how/what i see in my mind, like a BIG sketchbook, it’s one of the best tools i have.
