Goal: To create one piece of art each day for 365 consecutive days
As of yesterday, I have officially been alive 35 years. Not an exorbitant amount of time, and based on the fact that my grandma is still rockin it at 96, I like to think I have many years ahead.
My 35th year has been one of enormous growth. I base this on the fact that I have chosen to dedicate myself to being an artist. While not a huge money making endeavor, I really believe it has brought more to my life than any job I could have taken ever would have. Plus, when people ask what I do, I get to tell them I make art.
I recognize that the arting path I have chosen would have been umpteen times more difficult if it weren’t for the lovely folks in my life who have, for some odd reason, decided they’d back me up and be my cheerleaders along this adventure. So for day 199’s art, I opted to make a birthday cake (albeit a very abstract one) whose candles are held up by little circular blobs. I feel pretty strongly that without all of the fabulous people in my life (aka circular blobs), much of this craziness that I have opted to take a stab at would have been done with much more struggle. Heck, maybe it wouldn’t have been done at all. So thanks to all of you who help hold up my candles. Here’s to many more adventurous years!
