Art Every Day Month – Day 20

Contentment costs little these days. I wish I had the time and energy to begin more ambitious projects (I drool over Leah’s daily output), but I’m also really pleased with what I’m doing this year. Some day, soon enough, I’ll make big messes again.

    beautiful seashells! i totally hear you about wanting to get to more ambitious projects requiring more time and energy. my daughter is 16 months and i really don’t get the time in i need for my larger canvas pieces. but like you i know they’ll come a time when i have that freedom again. right now i’m enjoying the time in my daughter life where she needs my attention almost every second of the day!!! it sure won’t be like that forever!!!

    have a lovely day!

    beautiful seashells!!!

    i totally hear you about not having the time or energy to give to more ambitious projects… i would love to have that time for my larger canvas pieces. my 16 months old daughter takes up most of my days and well you know how that is. no time, no energy. but like you i know that they’ll come a time where i’ll have some of my creative freedom back… but right now i’m enjoying the time in my daughter’s life where she needs every second of my attention! cause i know it won’t always be that way!!!

    have a lovely day!!!

    i have to say, i totally love what you’ve been doing this year, kathryn!

    and i can’t imagine how hard it must be to fit in art-making when you’ve got a little one to care for, so i give you all the credit in the world. i agree, you’ll be able to make bigger messes soon enough. 🙂

    I came over from AEM – these are great! I especially like the spiral one – it has so much energy (and such tiny detail. I just don’t do tiny detail and I love to see it in others’ work).
