Did all the food shopping, piled it into the car and drove out of the underground carpark…with the windows wide open. The moment my car was clear of the building a warm breeze carrying the scent of the Aussie outback filled the car.
Happy New Year to all of you! This year is going to be one of art and I’m starting out with the attempt to get one Piece of Art COMPLETED per week. Considering my last post, completing is something I really need to do more of.
So here be my first Piece a Week and a short story to go with it.
This is a photo of the view from our front yard. You’re looking at the peak of an extinct ( or according to some people, dormant) volcano. We’re parked between the two major craters – this is the pinnacle of the Valley Lake crater. Behind us is the larger crater of the Blue Lake. We’re at Mount Gambier and because I have a memory like a sieve, this is my first Reverb post.
Do you find yourself driven to make something? If given homework at school, did you hand yours up neatly written, but plain, or neatly written and decorated with multicolour penwork? What do you think is the force behind this need to create, make, or otherwise construct something out of anything?
I have not done any art for over a week now and I’m going a little crazy. Plus I’m surviving on about two hours sleep. No answers to any challenges this week 🙁 I’m so sad that I’ve missed them, particularly Paint Party Friday as I was looking forward to that one.
I spent tonight tidying up my art corner in order to fit the primed boards inside the house. Since we had children and lost the two spare rooms, everything that didn’t migrate to the rubbish bin ended up out in the hobby room. The hobby room which houses two computers, a display case, four bookcases, two cupboards, six desks, a filing cabinet, a set of art drawers and a sewing machine cabinet, is starting to become crowded. I’m having the problem of needing to put away things that have no place to go. And since I’ve been neglecting things like housework so I can art…well, let’s say it wasn’t a pretty sight.
