I Didn’t Really Feel Like Doing Any Art, Yesterday.

One thing I find about doing art, is that you have to keep it up.  In some respects, it’s like exercise or meditation, if you slack off a day, you’re likely to slack off the next day…and then, before you know it, you’ve fallen back into the life of a slug sitting endlessly at your computer,  checking LOLcats.

Only,sometimes, you’re sick or you’ve been up all night, worrying about being overdrawn in your bank account, or whatever.  You know if you really force yourself to do any art under those circumstances, you’re going to come up with a work of art suitable to get a fire started in the fireplace.  For that matter, sometimes, with exercise and yoga, that can happen, too.

I”ve forgiven myself for the exercise and meditation.  I’ve taken the pressure off myself, and figure what I actually manage to do, is better than nothing.

With art, however, I take a different approach.  If I am in the state that any drawing I would do would turn to *@$?, I do something art related, like cataloging my work, or putting my work in mats.  In the case of yesterday, I doodled a few roses on my picture of Pumpkin.

Why roses?  How very un New York like.  I’m trying to keep the drawing true to the area we got Pumpkin.  It looks like this picture.  Please have patience with the man with his shirt hanging out…he’s my boyfriend and had no idea he was being photographed for the internet.

There really are rosebushes there!  But more typical are garbage cans.  I have yet to figure out how to make a garbage can picturesque.

So, I did my part for yesterday…and on to today!
