I enjoy the Sustainably Creative blog of Michael Nobbs. This month we all enjoyed A Month of Tiny Steps, in which Michael challenged us to set aside 20 minutes a day on a project. It could be something that produced a tiny work each day, like making a drawing a day, or it could be something that was easy to start and stop. As I have a bunch of canvases laying around, and I can’t seem to sit still for more than 20-30 minutes at a time, this sounded like a good challenge.
So I chose the latter option of working on one bigger project for 20-30 minutes a day. This owl evolved a lot over the course of February, and to be honest, I didn’t get to work on it EVERY day in February, and that’s o.k. Another point of the Tiny Steps is to learn to be gentle with oneself. Sustainably Creative is a great place to get gentle feedback, drawing prompts, and is a nice community of people.
