Finding Balance

I started this drawing of squares and circles recently with a Micron black pen:

I was thinking of using a drawing for one of my monthly Square Projects;  you can read more about my project here: February’s Square Project

I think we all struggle with finding balance in one or two areas of our lives.  I know I do! 😉

Sometimes I wish life was as easy as balancing lights and darks like this collage:

The collage is still waaay too busy for me, much like life is some times… and yet cutting up the original collage and rearranging the pieces helped me to focus on the whole picture, not just the annoying parts!

It also helped me create balance in this drawing:

Creating art teaches me a lot about finding balance in my life.  How about you?

My drawing is almost complete, next I will add pencil shading.

Cheers! 🙂

 

Running Backwards

Do you remember what it felt like when you ran backwards as a child?  It was fun at first  but then I’d get disoriented and dizzy.  Life reminds me a little of this experience lately…

I’m trying to train a new employee at work which is exciting at first but then starts to feel a bit overwhelming!  And there is my never ending domestic duties!  😉  It is getting more difficult to find time to create art and blog which I totally enjoy!  So I’m starting to feel a bit dizzy…  ;-0

I’m going to have to take a little break.  Just until next Wednesday – when Harold reveals his surprise (see yesterday’s post).

I hope I can catch up with what is going on in your blogs during this time!  🙂
