With one month left of summer (you read that right, one whole month!), I figured I should do something productive. And then it hit me: I needed to tap into my
nonexistent never before seen art potential. Creativity rarely strikes at a “convenient” hour and this was no exception. So I did what any other rationally thinking person would do: I awoke my husband from his deep slumber to ask where I should start. Graciously, he advised me to gather 3-4 objects, place them in front of me and start drawing. At least, that’s what I deciphered through the grogginess.
One would think that since my mom is an exceptionally talented artist that even a little ounce of that artistry would have transferred to me.. isn’t that how biology is supposed to work? Yeah, not so much. Nevertheless, I found a vase with a sunflower in it and worked out a sketch. Here is the semi-finished result:
I also took this creative time to make a stop motion video:
