Sketching on my phone
My first attempt at sketching on my phone isn't so great.
Here's the thing... phone screens are tiny. It is AMAZING that this is even slightly possible, but it is hard to compose an image. This one kind of looks like a flower throwing up.
I want to make more art and be more involved in my artsy side. I spend a good portion of my time cooking, laundry, cleaning, baby entertaining, errand running... I want to spend some time making something. It feels productive. Somehow doing things like laundry, cooking, and cleaning - things that, once you do them, you will have to do them again tomorrow - don't feel as productive as making an object or an image. You don't have to make an image again and again. You make it the one time and it's there forever.
Today I did a load of laundry, cooked two days' worth of vegetables, took the kids to two different play groups, changed countless diapers, and so on. I'm going to have to do that stuff tomorrow. But this dumb little sketch I made on my phone is done... haha!
