So here’s what I want to share today…life happens! I know, profound isn’t it? But it does and plans change or go up in smoke.
I have been participating in a year long daily art challenge with Tori at DrawRiot since January 1, following a set of prompts for each day. I was doing swimmingly for 76 days and then LIFE stepped in. For 10 days I did nothing. I felt bad, kicked myself a few times for not even trying and generally felt like I had failed. Of course, this way of thinking is just crap! I know this, you know this. But it doesn’t seem to stop the negative thoughts from pouring through our minds. So after a reality check with myself that I hadn’t failed but just missed a few days, I started back on the next day.
The prompt was, of all things, the word New! So a new day, a new start and I’m back on track to keep going. So what about all those prompts I missed? Well, watch the video below to see how I used them all. Creatively speaking, I never missed a prompt! So here’s my day 86 of the 365 day art challenge…
PS…you can follow along with the rest of the year on Instagram as I do my best to keep creating everyday!
