Arting for 365 Day 135: Familiarity

Day 135 (9/10/12): Rocks, Leaves, Grass

~8 x 11″ Watercolor

Goal: To create one piece of art each day for 365 consecutive days

Yesterday was one of those days in which I was feeling pretty darned uninspired. This a bit of an issue when you’ve committed to doing a project a day, but it was nothing that couldn’t be overcome. Here is why:

Even when my brain feels completely blank, there are still things that just feel natural to draw and paint. Repeated circles, lines and leaves are all very familiar and comforting to me. I suppose I could liken them to a t-shirt whose years of wear have made it incredibly soft. The difference, I hope is that while the t-shirt might eventually need to be tossed out, the familiar elements will simply be adapted and used in new ways.  Or perhaps like the old t-shirt, I simply save them for the days when comfort and familiarity trump the need for much else.

This piece available for purchase.

I'd love to hear your thoughts. Feel free to post them here.
