Art Every Day Month – Day 14-20

in Art Every Day Month


Here are more of my Art Every Day Month little sketches. This one I did after going to the 29 Gifts book launch party.


When I got home from leading the Right-Brain Business Plan workshop on Sunday, I felt energized and full of creative ideas.


One thing I love about doing these 3″x3″ sketches is that it takes just a few minutes to finish one. So, even if I remember close to midnight, I can whip one out!


Brian made an observation last night that the state of the kitchen sink usually matches the state of my mind (teehee). I’ve been feeling pretty overwhelmed the past few days!


And this is the second time this week that Emmett got into the trash when he was home alone. There’s the cute culprit below.

These are awesome. A reminder art doesn’t have to be big or time consuming… and the outcome can be just as rewarding.

Enjoy the heck out of these. I am grateful you shared them!

These are great! What a wonderful way to combine art & daily living…and a nice reminder that there are others out there facing over-turned trash & dirty dishes. 🙂

I love them all. Truly an inspiration for me because I love to simplify.

p.s… are you sure your not showing a picture of My sink? lol… glad i’m not the only one 🙂 who has time to clean when there is so much creating and connecting to do.

laughing hard! gotta love the ‘art every day’ concept – it really makes you dig into the nitty gritty of life. even if you do run out of dishes. same thing happens with clothing around here. often i just buy more so i won’t have to deal with the laundry.

Emmett 🙂

Your dog looks as about as guilty as mine. I’ve had to resort to putting the trash can in the pantry closet to keep him out of it when we’re gone.

my favorite is the dirty dishes one. Dirty dishes are my nemesis. And you did that one on my 39th birthday. 🙂

I love the idea of doing a little book of daily sketches. I have been so overwhelmed by all the different journals and sketchbooks that I have got going these days…I do morning pages and a visual journal and a yoga practice journal and a blog…yikes! Maybe I should make things more compact and small too! I love the picture of your dog too….they are so hard to stay mad at when they are that cute! This is my first time to your blog! Very inspiring to me, thanks for sharing!

These sketches are so much fun! I think I might have to try a few :). There must be something going on in doggie world because my dog went into the trash yesterday!!
