I’ve been having fun with my little Art Every Day Month 3″x3″ sketch book. I love how the pages are already getting warped and wrinkled. The journal traveled with me to Mexico and I doodled every day I was there. Here are some of my pages from the past week or so.
When we arrived in Playa del Carmen it was hot and muggy and the air conditioner in our room was on the fritz. Thank goodness it got fixed!
I enjoyed a nice yoga class at Yoga by the Way.
I was determined to spend at least some time on the beach, but it was just not meant to be. There was a tiny opening of sunshine while we ate lunch, but by the time we finished up and got our gear ready, the wind was blowing so hard that sand got in our eyes the moment we stepped foot on the shore. Good thing I was able to fit in another yoga class, though!
After a long day of travel, I was glad to be back home. I almost forgot about my art for the day, so I did this quick drawing of our house before I went to bed. There are details missing (like a whole other window and part of my front porch – oops!), but I just have to remember from intuitive painting classes that it’s not about the product, it’s about the process.
You know how when you have a ton of work to do, the closets and fridge suddenly seem to require reorganization pronto? Well, I spent most of Sunday purging and cleaning. It felt good, though, to clear the clutter.
Here’s an abstract painting I did last night. I just let the colors go wherever they wanted. It kind of looks like there are some eerie dark hands covering up a mouth or a heart.
I’m really loving the structure of my little journal for this year’s Art Every Day Month challenge and may even continue to do daily doodles even when November ends. It only takes a few minutes for me to whip out a little scribble or painting, so there’s really no excuse, right? Plus it’s fun to chronicle my days through art.
