Art Every Day Month---DAYS 14, 15, 16


Except for finishing up the 2nd birthday art journal, I didn't DO a lot of art, but I did PARTICIPATE in a whole lot of creativity over the weekend!

Saturday was the big day here for the Madison County Artist Market. After trying to straighten up the house for the kids' Sunday visit, I spent the afternoon appreciating all the local art, visiting with artist friends, and hanging out with my friend Teresa, the Queen of up-cycling, who had a booth there.

The kids came yesterday and the Girl and I presented Art History Major with her journal.
Dinner was uncomfortable; she had an 8 page paper in her landscape class due today (that she hadn't even started), so she wasn't the best company and she hurt our feelings. But I just got a text message that said "sorry I was such a bitch yesterday...I do love the journal"
Awww..... I'm so grateful my children know how to apologize!

This is how her book turned out---

notice the little map of Italy, especially for the Art History Major :)

a lovely journal! She is a lucky girl. I have a daughter who can be the same way - so caught up in her own worry she doesn't realize the feelings she is hurting until later. So glad she recognized it! Your artwork is gorgeous!

I hear you on the wildly creative yet not overly productive... I hope those kinds of weekends fuel the next rush of creativity. That's what I am holding out for, anyway. :-)

Love the birthday book!

How lucky your daughter is to receive this. I am glad she apologized. It is a let down when people don't react they way you anticipate after working so hard. Your pages are wonderful. I really like the colors you used.
