Art Every Day Month, The Last Week

Well, we've tipped over into December and my duty to make some art every day is officially over. I did complete a daily creative act - mainly scribblings and jibblings in my Moleskine accordion notebook.

I will not stop because November has passed. I find this the best way to pass time otherwise spent sighing heavily. I have passed many minutes waiting in line without even noticing the time. That is the gift of the journal.

Many of these spreads aren't finished. I need to add color and more love. But if I wait for that I fear I will never post them.

I am still learning how to draw people. Just when I think it's time to give up (sorry, Katy Mesuga - you are much more stunning than my drawing suggests), I capture someone on the next page and am encouraged to keep trying.

Oh! I can try to draw the backs of people too..

I treated myself to lunch out...

Waiting in line for the Steins for nearly an hour

The exhibition was well worth the wait.




I visited two outdoor markets today and was delighted.

    I love your sketches – thanks for sharing. I hope you’ll swing by and check out what I did for AEDM is you get a chance – it was a fun month…you’re right though – can’t stop because the month is over. Happy December! Cheers, Lisa

    I love how you continued work on the piece from the Tea and Tattered Pages!

    What a wonderful month of sketching, Cynthia. So inspiring! I’m glad I started some work in my Moleskine, too. Thank you so much for your help with that! Not that I have continued it… I got sick this weekend, and it seems that every ounce of energy has been put into just trying to get well and stay on top of daily life after a super busy October and November. But I did do one more sketch on the weekend, and I’m at the very least inspired to just the best that I can this month, which may not be a sketch-a-day, but will be more sketching than I have done for a very, very long time. This is a good thing. Gotta start somewhere!

    Thank you for being so open about sharing your work this month. I appreciate it very much. :)

      Thank you, Karin! I’m very sorry to hear you’ve been sick. I’ve been fighting it off, too!

      Keep going with the drawing. Make it super easy and simple, and enjoy it. No pressure. But do keep going!

      So glad we could connect. Have fun taking your NaNo writing to its next phase.
