Working as a creative, sometimes you seize the moment where an idea strikes you. Working as a creative parent, sometimes you seize the moment (or minutes) that you're gifted. I wake early and grab 10 minutes with some paint and splash it on a few pieces of paper.
I grab an interesting-looking weed by the side of the road to make a print of later.
Over lunch, I doodle in my sketchbook.
I grab that weed and make a print, rinsing it out right before I go pick up the kids at school.
In a quiet spell before I begin making dinner, I lay a few paint strokes down.
I drag my kids into the art show opening for the length of the attention span of my youngest child.
Before bed, I draft an idea for another print variation to try tomorrow.
