saturday - i spent some time up in my studio playing around with my new idea for using BIG photographs in my work.... excited about this!
sunday- ada spent some time with her grandparents in the morning so that i could work on a project or two. i was feeling a little overwhelmed with all i had on my plate, so i went for a run (more like a run/walk if i’m being honest...) and it did the trick! totally cleared my head and helped me focus. i spotted this apple tree when i was out- it was hard to miss because it smelled so deliciously sweet! (i’m totally counting this as my creative “me” time as it helped me push through a block i was having and i got back to work refreshed and excited... )
monday- it was a busy one, ada woke up feeling a little under the weather/ a lot cranky, so things had to shift around a bit which is always tricky, but luckily, in the evening between dinner and bedtime i found a little pocket of time to sneak up to my studio. while she and dada played trains and read green eggs and ham for the umpteenth time, i painted with a new-to-me color- black! spoiler alert- i even kinda loved it!
today, tuesday- a visit from the grandparents in the morning, coupled with a cooperative toddler taking a much needed afternoon nap provided me with lots of studio time- hooray! i tore apart my current inspiration wall next to my work table and started a new one. this is always a good practice, as it keeps things fresh and gets me re-inspired with some new ideas. these days i’m loving faded “vintage-y” yellows, the patterns and colors of old quilts, and botanical illustrations. (more on this wall soon as it grows!)
tomorrow is a studio/work day, so i’m excited to build on some of the things i’ve started these past few days!
