Arting for 365 Day 140: In Your Wheelhouse

Day 140 (9/15/12): Wheel House

~4 x 6″ Ink on paper

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

Following a very productive day yesterday that involved very little art, I sat down and with no end goal in mind, began drawing. As I progressed on the piece, I was feeling really good about how it was turning out. The detailed lines flowed through the space nicely and I felt good about the amount of contrast of black and white.  I showed the little drawing to the boyfriend who noted, “You’re in your wheelhouse.” He was right. I was.

I love creating these organic feeling pieces. But, as I mentioned to him, I almost feel like I’m cheating when I make them. Why you ask? Because they are really easy for me. My goal is to push myself to get better by challenging my skills as I move along in this venture. I know that this type of drawing does not challenge me. But I do love it.

So what’s a girl to do? Well, it’s probably not all bad for me to mix in a little of what is easy – especially because I love creating this type of design. Perhaps the “challenge” I am looking for will be to allow myself not to feel too guilty about it, and appreciate that I’ve got this little drawing technique that I am pretty good at and always enjoy.

This piece will be available for purchase on etsy.com
