Empty Space















I've got to be honest, skipping a posting day, even if it's on purpose, feels so wrong. I'm committing to this schedule for at least a month though, so we'll see how crazy it makes me.

I grew particularly attached to my Christmas decorations throughout December, and now that they're put away, I feel like there's just a huge empty hole in my space. Luckily, I've got plenty of projects planned, some of which will fill the stark space behind me in these photos. It's almost sterile, and I'm afraid the room will echo if I'm too loud. I've finally had a bit of post-Christmas sadness kick in, but I think it's just hormones.

On another note, I haven't drawn or painted anything all week, and I'm getting broody about it, so I think that's the main thing I'll be getting up to today. I still haven't purchased a new marker for the marker book, but I'd love to get back to simpler illustrations. Though I loved creating the Christmas pieces, I wasn't the happiest with them. I don't thing I fully put myself into them. I was a little disenchanted with illustrating by the end of the year. It's a good time to start fresh, no? 

I miss abstract painting as well, but that's something for another post. For now, I'm off to spend a day experimenting with illustrations. Maybe I'll find a new film to put on while I work. Hopefully I will. Sounds good.

  1. Hope you'll get some painting done soon then! As for creativity, I need to get my writing back on. Hahah how much I may love the days before Christmas, during and before/after New Year's, they are just worst to creativity. Laying in bed watching series is way more tempting than writing and activate the brain, lol! Anyways hope your week is lovely! Xx

  6. I swear, taking Christmas decorations down is always the worst. It sounds like you've got some fun projects coming up though to fill the space. Can't wait to see any illustrations or other artwork you create. Also - love the detailing on your blouse!
