Day 8: Shining a Light

November 8th, 2013, Comments (13)

Another piece of intuitive art today. Started with paint, let it dry and came back to see this leaning figure and light. Another symbol that I repeat a lot, the lantern, came up again. I kind of like the mystery, not knowing what will come up as I work. 

Annabelle was in fine form today after visiting her dad at his office. She gave everyone in the office an earful and didn't want to leave. Little extrovert! I loved how excited she was to draw when we got home though. She suggested using the ipad app (Drawing Pad, which is fantastic btw.) You can see her concentrating above and showing off her "colorful rainbow" below. 

Day 6, Traveling Muses in the Forest

November 6th, 2013, Comments (11)

Another intuitive piece today. I started painting freely, let the piece sit and then pulled out what I saw. Today, what I saw were a trio of familiar figures, the Traveling Muses, who I've painted before (you can see the original painting here.) How funny to have them return! 

And here's Annabelle working on painting her fairy wand purple. We planned to decorate more with glitter and ribbons after her nap, but she's taking a super long nap (and anyone who knows Annabelle, knows how rare that is!), so I think we'll finish it up tomorrow. 

Day 5, Dropping Stars

November 5th, 2013, Comments (11)

Today, I decided to do an intuitive piece. I started with wet watercolor paper and fluid acrylics, painting in bits here and there. Then I let it sit and waited to see what I would see. I saw a beautiful silver/white dress. I started pulling that out and this is what came out: Dropping Stars. 

When Annabelle heard her friend Ella was sick she said, "Maybe a make a heart to make Ella feel better?" So I cut out the shape and she made an intense drawing on it. Lots of love there! :)  

Day 1: The Search

November 1st, 2013, Comments (21)

Hooray! Art Every Day Month has begun! I hope everyone had a good experience today. If not, tomorrow is a new day. For today's art, I had to squeeze my painting into a short nap, then finish up in the evening. I let this one just happen and here's what came out. It's called "The Search." I like the constellations, which were a sudden inspiration that I enjoyed running with. The piece is 8"x8" with acrylic and ink on panel. 

The cutest thing happened today. I was out running errands with my 2.5 year old daughter, Annabelle and told her for the first time about Art Every Day Month. Her response: "I want to do art every day too!" Haha! I thought we might do AEDM together someday, but wasn't quite expecting it so soon! We are definitely creative every day together, it's impossible not to be, but to consciously think about creating each day together might be an interesting challenge. I'm not sure we'll have time each day to do and document something, but we will as often as we can. Today we made a necklace. She picked the order of the beads and strung the round ones. She was quite pleased with her creation. :-)  

Day 30: Shedding Gold

November 30th, 2012, Comments (8)

Another magical year of Art Every Day Month has come to a close today. As I mentioned in the check-in, it was one of my favorites. Things just seemed to be flowing and that always feels good. I hope that things were flowing for you as well. If you want to keep the energy going, sign up for the Creative Every Day Challenge. The check-ins are weekly (every Monday) and continue throughout the year. Stay tuned for December's (totally optional) theme and the sign-up page for 2013!

Today's art is another intuitive piece I'm calling "Shedding Gold." And now, time for bed.

Another intuitive piece today. Simple, but I'm loving it. Seems fitting that the second day of this month brought a mother - daughter image and the second to last day did as well.

I can not believe that tomorrow is the last day of Art Every Day Month this year! As always, it flew.

Day 27: Quiet Night

November 27th, 2012, Comments (11)

Tonight is a quiet night at home.

So much fun with little Miss Annabelle today, who was so happy to see some of her little friends in art class today. My child has no fear of mess. It does not phase her to be covered in paint, goo, or soapy bubbles. That's my girl! At home we colored together with animal head crayons that were supposed to be a stocking stuffer (oops!) We played many, many games of Ring Around the Rosy, read many books, chased the cats. And tonight when I told her it was time for bed, she said, "Oh No!" haha. She went to bed just fine though.

Playing intuitively with paint today, I saw a phoenix in the shapes as I worked, so this one I'm dedicating to my lovely sister, Leslie or as Annabelle calls her, Lala.

Day 21: Creating a Forest of Her Own

November 21st, 2012, Comments (7)

Tonight, I started this painting after dinner, while Annabelle was still awake and she was super jealous. She wanted to paint too!

The acorn imagery appears in this painting as well, in the gut of the woman and also coming out of her hand over the forest blooming from her dress.

I will be away tomorrow, so I most likely won't post my art from Thursday until Friday (the daily posts will still be up.) I hope those of you in the States have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Day 14: Golden Trees

November 14th, 2012, Comments (10)

A piece of intuitive art today. Playing with paint on watercolor paper, this is what came out!

Tomorrow, I leave for a few days away with family. The daily check-in posts will still be up, so you can share your work, but I won't have my laptop, so I won't be able to post my work until I return (Sunday.) If I can connect to the internet on my phone, I will be sharing my work each day on Instagram! And I'll be able to check my email occasionally. Good luck with your creating, everyone!!
