I couldn't resist joining in with Leah Piken Kolidas' Art Every Day Month again this year. It has been fun for me before - no pressure, but a chance to push myself and show up more often in my studio and, hopefully, have some new pieces of art finished throughout the month. And that is my operative word this month - finished!
Many things that I'll be tackling will be unfinished projects I've cast aside, but now want to bring to completion. Of course, there will be spontaneous new pieces also, and, of course, CATS!
And so, for my first project, I came across this little paper cut I had started a while ago. It is very small - the cats, in total, are three inches across. I did some more smoothing of edges and added a background and other features, and finally finished it just a few minutes ago.
I will probably never work on something this tiny again - at least not a paper cut! I can't tell you how many times I cut a little black nose and mouth only to have it slip out of my hands into the depths of my dark green sewing room rug! Could you hear me gnashing my teeth?
Anyway, it does feel good to complete something, and I'll be moving on to my Day 2 project later!
Oops - can't resist adding this photo of Angus and friend from last night!
See you tomorrow!
