Wednesday #13 Roof

The rough, tongues lay quietly underneath my flannel pajamas as I listened to the first birds beginning to wake from from their sleep.  Slowly, the light touches my bare toes and I feel the slow creep of warmth over my body.  A warm blanket.  Silence in the city.  No one else is awake, not evenContinue reading “Wednesday #13 Roof”

Tuesday #12 Stuck

I think today’s prompt word belongs to Pooh! The moment I looked at the word for Day #12 – stuck, I immediately pictured Pooh stuck in a hole trying to get his honey. I know many of us can related to the this word because we’ve all been here during our creative process. I reallyContinue reading “Tuesday #12 Stuck”

Monday is Day #11 Sour

My desk is piled high with LED lights to fix a broken light box, pens, and clay and I turned my head away as I got ready for the week this morning.  The sluggish feeling of the morning isn’t very motivating, and I feel like it’s another Sour Monday.  A new start looks sweet butContinue reading “Monday is Day #11 Sour”

Day #10 Pick

Nothing like a lazy and quiet Sunday to nap in while the sun streams in through windows.  I feel like a comfortable cat in her pile of blankets and pillows.  Then, I woke and realized I worked in The Art Shoppe today.  While I play shop girl in Minneapolis, my mind went through the 31Continue reading “Day #10 Pick”

Day #9 of InkTober and Preptober!

Friday nights during the month of October are about baking pink glittered brains inside my clay oven until midnight.  I fill witch’s cauldrons with sparkling green goo bubbles.  What would a witch stall at a market place sell right now?  Well, eyeball soup and brains on a silver platter.  Everything on an inch scale orContinue reading “Day #9 of InkTober and Preptober!”

Friday is Day #8 – Watch

Last night meant late hours because my art muse decided to stay awake and create a miniature cauldron of green, glittery goo. I was supposed to be working on my next day of InkTober but my hands itched to make something in 3D. No matter the medium, at least these chilly months inspire creation. SubtitlesContinue reading “Friday is Day #8 – Watch”

We’re All Fans Today

I think I made a new friend by the end of yesterday.  It was pink and in a bottle.  This wasn’t the kind of spirit I wanted to drink but it stopped the gurgle.  Well, no matter what the day we must continue with our goal this month in prompts.  I hope you enjoyed myContinue reading “We’re All Fans Today”

Day #6 of InkTober – Word Prompt Is Spirit

The middle of the week is here and I started to laugh when I saw the prompt for Day # 6.  The word spirit didn’t bring to mind anything spooky, instead it conjured up the image of a flask of hard liquor.  Yes, it’s been that kind of day and I’m not a drinker.  IContinue reading “Day #6 of InkTober – Word Prompt Is Spirit”

October Challenges

The beginning October came in like a fury, and I found myself running around like Superwoman trying to do it all. The rain on Saturday didn’t deter me from going to craft and art event of another artist that my mother-in-law hosted. My husband and I drove through the buckets of heavy rain coming downContinue reading “October Challenges”

Inktober and Preptober are here!

Preptober is here!!!  I had another post ready to go when I did a 180 and changed my mind in what I’m going to do for Preptober.  I’ve had a goal of publishing another illustrated book so I’m going to use the month to focus on the scenes and writing for a graphic style novel. Continue reading “Inktober and Preptober are here!”

Two Muses

The last day of September is here and I have piles of papers, clay, and glitter all over my desk.  My two muses have been busy at the beginning of the school year.  I don’t miss having certain kinds of homework anymore but sometimes I feel like I’m still in the classroom.  There’s always somethingContinue reading “Two Muses”
