Yesterday, Daniel (@Highmoon on the Twitter) posted a pic of his shadow while he rode his bike into the sunset (and he managed to do it without falling down. Bonus!) It got me thinking about using body shadows as the beginnings for a piece of art. Fun! So, I made this little video (with a cat cameo by Sadie) of my shadow tracing. I plan to paint and play with the shapes I created and I'll post those soon.
Most of my creative energy lately has been spent on a private commission, entertaining guests, and learning a new skill (vector art, fun!) And a lot of my free time has been spent adding all the fabulous new participants to the Creative Every Day Challenge list. I'm blown away by how many have joined in this year, over 600 of us so far. I have a feeling that by the end of the year, we'll be over a thousand. And I love it because I feel like the energy of us all focusing on creativity together is a beautiful thing.
I wish I could get around to see what each one of you is up to every day, but I will do my best to visit when I can and I hope you'll continue to visit and support each other. A little bit of support goes a long way for each and every one of us!
I've also got some interviews to share with you this month with some amazing creative women. Among other things, we'll be talking about the ways in which the body and creativity intertwine. So very exciting. In the meantime, happy creating everyone!
