Sunday Weekly Wrap-Up

This past week I have actually been able to create or work on some art each day.

(and have now found my header for my Sunday Weekly Wrap-Up - hopefully I will figure out how to add words to the above!)


Leah of Creative Every Day is hosting Art Every Day this Month and I am following her survival guide. There have been interesting nuggets each day.

Here are a few pieces I did this week from her prompts:

Walk outside and observe the world around you:
I love the leaves at this time of year - loved the rough wood behind. Love photography as well.

Make bad art (it's getting me in the mood tho for the holidays!)

Just Do it:

I had seen this heron in an old, old copy of "Flat Tail" and I loved the lines.
(I love herons as well) So I attempted a sketch - on a day when I really didn't feel too creative.

Create Small:

I do this all the time with ATCs .

The Artist's Way

I am a week behind! I finally finished Chapter 9 for our group that is hosted by Paula.

I love the message in this chapter that enthusiasm and play are paramount. Yes we need to have discipline, but the joy must be there in the creating.

I enjoyed the task of describing and visualizing what my future life will be like.

"I am an artist and an art teacher, holding classes for children".

Yes, I can see it! And I am working on steps to get there.

When the task asked us to chose an artist totem I knew what it had to be:an art doll I created a few years ago for a Visual Arts teaching course I took.

She has many of the symbols I associate with myself. She now has a place of honour on my shelves.

This week I will forge ahead with Chapter 10.

Love your artist totem! I just finished two tasks for Chapter 9, and just began reading Chapter 10 yesterday, so you are not that far behind! (or maybe we both are?!)

I too love your artist totem. She looks so happy just as you will be teaching art and creating each day. You impress me with all of the art that you are able to do as well as teach each day. Have a great week!

I like your heron, not only is he well drawn, but he makes me smile...he looks like he is modelling a fashion item as he struts his stuff down the catwalk, or runway if in USA :)
