As May ended, and I wrapped up writing my novel, and started thinking about June I took into consideration some of the things I felt my soul was longing for.
I’d spent most of the previous five months writing on one or another project. It’s a lot of brain work. I knew June would involve beginning first edits on my novel, and I wanted to finalize my first children’s book. More and more brain work.
I remember lamenting to my husband that I don’t have time to do art. My evenings are full with writing and my weekends also plus all those grown up things one has to do like groceries, laundry, etc. I decided to schedule time each week for me to do art. It gives my brain a break, while still exercising that creative part. Not to mention exercising my soul.
So Tuesdays & Thursdays are for art. I have a feeling I’ll have a stack of completed things come the end of the summer. Maybe I should open a shop. 😉
Here’s a few things I’ve done.
all is gold (acrylics on canvas) – gift for friend
charcoal on canvas board – gift for brother
Stacked Stones (Ombré Acrylics on Canvas Board)
