Arting for 365 Day 73: In “Loo” of a Toilet

Day 73 (7/10/12): In "loo" of a toiletGoal: To create one piece of art each day for 365 consecutive days

There are days when I feel like I’m just spinning in circles. Yesterday, after sitting for hours accomplishing little, and feeling a bit mopey about the situation, I realized I needed a new scene – literally. I grabbed a pen and a piece of paper in which I had glued pieces of floral wrapping paper. I moved from the muggy little room I was attempting to work in to the cool bathroom floor.

The seemingly mundane toilet became a fascinating subject for me. Drawing it I noticed its shadows, shiny spots and designed lines. (I also happened to notice some of the dust and grime – but that’s another project). I was reminded that I should never be stumped as to what to draw. We’re surrounded by all sorts of great stuff if we just take a moment to look at it.
