This is my first blog! I’ve been thinking about starting one for a while, mostly to document all the changes that motherhood has brought on. However, motherhood has kept me pretty busy so now, 6+ years later, my motivation is a little different. I am trying to get art back into my life and I want to be held accountable. Art for me is like vegetables – veggies nourish and make me feel healthy and more complete even if I have to remind myself to keep eating them. I also know that I am a better balanced person when I can draw or paint every once in a while. So, here we go.
In addition, I solicited help from my daughter (age 6). She expects to see a finished painting everyday she comes home from school. If I don’t produce, I have to pay the toll. Currently, the toll is one “very pretty jump rope” and if I can’t find one pretty enough then removing the training wheels from her bike will do.
