Mystery Project

YAY! I've finished a painting for Art House Co-op's "Mystery Project." After I joined, they sent a random Prismacolor marker and theme to be used as inspiration. My marker color was "violet" and my theme was "the future of the year." I have 'til tomorrow to install it in a random public place so a stranger can find it. I chose the subject "SECURITY", since I feel like this year of my life is both secure and insecure, depending on which inner struggles are visiting me at the moment. And some days I don't want the responsibility of doing my part to mold my life. Fear, procrastination and self-doubt sabotage me, and can keep me from moving one foot in front of the other. Maybe it's my impending 50th birthday?
Anyhoo, here's the painting, and a copy of the note I'm leaving with it. I'll stash it somewhere tomorrow in Stillwater, MN and document it here and on the blog's facebook page. Leave a comment if you want a hint on the location.

Journal Page

A page in progress in my "Life is So Daily" art journal. I try to add something each day. In those stretches when I'm not doing anything else creative, it keeps me from being crabby and restless.
