While I was vacuuming


Instead of placing one piece of paper on the inked palette, I grabbed three scraps & laid them in place over the inked palette & Ostrich fern leaves.

As I was vacuuming up dust and dead bugs on our porch, I thought about how we spend our time. Housekeeping and life’s daily chores are necessary, and can even provide a contrast to the more challenging activities in life. In fact, more than one artist has written about deriving comfort and time for reflection from the doing of life’s ordinary tasks. But if you are a maker—a creator of something that didn’t exist before you started your creative process—keep at it. Your “making” of something is making a difference, surely for your own satisfaction and joy.
