I had so little time for art today. For these pages I just grabbed a pencil and doodled in my monster sketchbook. The pencil itself was kind of interesting: a standard American number-2 dark blue pencil with “1990 FBLA DISTRICT II SKILLS’ CONFERENCE” stamped in gold on it. I wondered where it came from, and how it found its way into my pencil holder. I was happy to learn that it was my husband, and not I, who was hoarding 19-year-old pencils and moving them from country to country with us. Not that I haven’t been schlepping 19-year-old items through four countries myself. I’m sure there are plenty to be found.
This week has turned out to be so busy with things that are not art. Not that I can complain, since most of the things are very very fun things, but still it’s frustrating that I can’t give art the attention it deserves during Art Every Day Month. Hopefully tomorrow I will steal more time for art, and have something more interesting to share with you.
