Arting for 365 Day 57: Birder

Day 57 (6/24/12): Bird GirlGoal: To create one piece of art each day for 365 consecutive days

She’d really taken a liking to the birds. In fact over the past year or two she’d begun studying up on them – working to identify each little beauty by sound and sight. Of course she knew the easy ones, like the robin and hummingbird. But she could also recognize the finches, sparrows and egrets with ease. At times she even went so far as to call herself a birder.

Now though, as she sat perched on this branch, she realized she had taken her hobby too far.

Arting for 365 Day 46: Eggs in One Basket

Day 46 (6/13/12): Eggs in One Basket

24 x 36″ Ink and acrylic on canvas

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

Some of you avid followers may recall that I made a piece titled Subtleties on day 30 in which I experimented with painting using only light colors. That piece has been hanging out on my easel, wondering what to do with itself ever since. Subtleties, it seemed, just did not fit in at this house. It lacked any sort of personality and longed to be given attention. So yesterday, I did just that.

With the wise old saying, “Don’t put your eggs all in one basket” on my mind, I created the work for day 46. As I did so, I realized that while the saying is really quite true, sometimes it’s worth the risk to load up the basket and hope for the best.
