A Daisy Today

ACEO - 2.5 x 3.5"
colored pencil drawing on wood veneer
This has been a very busy and productive week for me; however, none of the busy-ness included making art. Oh, there were a few jabs at the sketch book, some planning and some creative thinking, but no real time for drawing or painting.
I was only able to get this little ACEO done. I drew it with colored pencils directly onto a small sheet of wood veneer. This is another technique where you can frame the piece without glass. Just a spray of acrylic varnish and its all set.
But I wonder, does the lack of time to make art cause other artists to become as cranky as I have been this week?

I have actually been told, "go do some art, then we'll talk." So, yes, I get very cranky when I don't do art. (I don't even like me when I've gone a few days...) :D

Beautiful ACEO!
And the answer to your question is YES...

I am so glad to have found your blog. I really like your painting and drawing style. And yes ... we all get cranky when we can't paint! Well done!

Delightful daisy. I have had several days away from my art because of teaching etc. I was feeling out of sorts this afternoon and so I headed to my studio in order to log in some hours at the drafting table. Suddenly all was well with my world!

Just discovered your site - beautiful work! And yes, a little art goes a long way in making for a happier artist. When I'm grumpy, I paint!
