Art Every Day Month Check-In: Day 20

November 20th, 2010


Welcome to day 20 of Art Every Day Month. I can hardly believe we're at day 20 already! Time flies when you're creatively engaged. :-)

The box below is a widget that I provide each day as an optional place to share a direct link (blog post or flickr image) to that day's creation. If you don't have something to share today, don't worry about it! Share when you can. In the meantime, be sure to check out what other participants are creating! Check out the links from today's post and the links on the participant page for instant inspiration. You can also see lots of great work in the AEDM flickr group. Feel free to share your work there too!

If you use the widget, please link to a specific blog post, not your main blog page or website (or you can link to a specific image if you're linking to a flickr page.) For example, for day one I would link to my first post: instead of my main blog page: This makes it easier for people to find your work.  If you want to share, but don't have a specific page to link to, feel free to use the comments section of this post to share what you're working on. If you're posting less than once a day, no problem! Simply use the latest one of these posts to share a link to your creation. For some, it's too much to keep up with posting every day, but don't let that get you down. Do it if you can and if you can't, just keep on creating, that's the most important part. If you get off track and miss a few days of creating, don't let that freeze you up either. Just pick up where you left off and keep moving forward. One foot in front of the other. You are making your life a more creative one with each step.

How to participate in Art Every Day Month: Check out the AEDM info page for all the details, instructions on how to get involved, and then visit the participants page to sign-up before you use the link widget to share your creations. The Information page also has instructions about how to use the widget below, if you're having any trouble with it.

Survival Guide: If you feel like you could use some more support, prompts, and motivation to keep going throughout the month, check out the Art Every Day Month Survival Guide.

Twitter: If you're on Twitter (I'm on there as @leah_art), I've been using the hashtag #aedm2010 to mark Art Every Day Month tweets. It helps to find others who are tweeting about AEDM!

Creative Every Day Challenge participants: If you're not doing Art Every Day Month, you can still use any of the daily Art Every Day Month check-in posts to leave your weekly link.

We will discover the nature of our particular genius when we stop trying to conform to our own and other’s people’s models, learn to be ourselves and allow our natural channel to open. —Shakti Gawain

I am continuing with an oil painting I have been working on. It is all part of my new series that I have recently begun.

I just did a small drawing using color pencil on black paper. A small experiment :-)

I posted two crocheted pieces, one that I have been working on since the beginning of the month that I just finished, and one that I designed and created in about an hour last night.

I love Art Every Day Month! I am so glad I found this place to share my creativity. Thanks, Michele! (You know who you are :) )

My studio is too cramped to work in right now…as the floor needed to be open…everything including the dining room table is squished into the studio. So I have been reading a lot and working on last years art fairs…all the sales and expenses. Also, getting ready to enter for jury the 2011 show schedule.
My creativity has centered yesterday and today on making a new top and slipcover for an old ottoman.
Painting the new baseboard and moldings is my next project.

My check in includes video. I don’t think I have shown video here yet. ^gulp^

Began trying out the acrylics I got, looking for “Florida Keys” sort of colors.

Just realized I didn’t comment this a.m. In the midst of being awake too early: hubby and deer met on the road home. He’s fine but it left me a bit rattled (he had just gone to sleep – and I knew I wasn’t going to so I posted instead…nice to have something to focus on!)

Starting to loosen up and have fun with this now. I love the Shakti Gawain quote BTW.

New post, lots of thoughts about where I started with all of this. My how time does pass, I found myself remembering where I was in 2007 when I restarted this creative adventure.

For the third time, I finished the Conan O’Brien painting. This time is for real. I’m finally happy with it. It is DONE.

I just love apple tree Leah. It’s really wonderful!

More quilt blocks today.

Learning to slow down.

Had problems at the blog, couldn’t upload photos, threw me for a loop of frustration. Still, art continued. A page and 14 questions about food and cooking!

Today was an exciting day. I completed the embroidery on a bag I started on Day 14.
