My Bad Art Habit

I have this bad habit of taking on lots of creative projects and then having no interest/motivation/desire to start them.  It’s pretty bad.   However, I am now trying with renewed effort (and some meds because apparently I’m sick and that’s why I’ve been sleeping so much).  It began with rampant cleaning and organizing.  The bed is made, the desk is nearly free of clutter, you can see the pictures on top of the dresser again and the easel is no longer a clothing rack.

Invisible Productivity!

Well, I did a lot of work today, but most of it was planning and file making for my annual family calendar, which means there isn’t really a picture of it.  However, I did make this lovely finger-painting with Ryan’s iPad:

Well, it’s a start…

So day one was easy because most of the creating I did was for the blog site.  Day two however,  posed a challenge.  Cthulhu boards might be dry enough to paint, but they are currently at Ryan’s house.  If I can manage to get some time with Cthulhu later, today might even merit a second update.

My newest ideas are all inspired by the fact that when Ryan and I move out we will have empty walls.  I bought a pack of 15 pre-prepped canvases (4″x6″).  They are small, but I think that will help things seem less intimidating.    I want to paint each canvas with a nerdy thing and then attach all the canvases like one of those collage picture frames.  I need ideas of nerdy things to paint on the canvases.  Ideas thus far include: D20, Portal gun, Horde symbol, Rebel Alliance symbol, Millennium Falcon…..but  I need more ideas.  suggestions welcome.
