Welcome to Day #3 of Art Every Day Month!
I hope you are taking the time to check in with some of the other artists working on this challenge!
Today, I have to confess, was a tough one for me. I spent waaaaay too much time obsessing about the election and not nearly enough creating art. But, I did get into the studio for awhile!
I worked on my blocks some more. I am pretty much determined to get them finished before heading off onto another project!
Today I added a little bit to the background and began my lettering.
So far I’m liking where it’s going, but tomorrow I need to focus better and make more progress than I did today!
For my third day of gratitude I’d like to mention my man, Mr. Tattered. I have a number of friends who are either having severe marital problems, or have already split up and are back into dating. And I have to say, I’m grateful I’m not.
I’ve been married for over 40 years now, and although he is perfectly capable of driving me up a wall (and I’m sure I do the same to him! Who, me??) I have to say I am grateful that we’ve managed to beat the odds and put together a relationship that works for both of us most of the time. He would agree that we’ve had our challenges.
Marriage is hard work. I don’t think either one of that realized that in the beginning. Young love has a way of glossing over the potential friction points. I’ve pretty much decided that the secret to a long marriage is continually re-falling in love with the same person over and over.
We took a little get-away last week and re-connected. We had a good talk about where we are and where we want to go, and fanned the romantic flame once again. It’s nice to do that every now and then.
