Twyla Tharp: "Art is the only way to run away without leaving home."
My One Little Word this year is paint. While I originally thought I would take the time to do something every day, I soon realized it was a crazy goal. I just don't have time, and mostly prefer to spend "extra" time with words-reading or writing. But I've done so much these past weeks with books, and I have enjoyed all the reading, too, but thought it was time to do a little painting again. I really hope I can do more than every once in a while. It is so relaxing to sit and look and try to emulate something. Ask Michelle Hazeltine at One Grateful Teacher about coloring. She's been doing some wonderful work in different designs, and there has been more than one article published recently about the value of coloring/art in both children's and adult's lives. Give it a try! Here's my latest.
FYI: I'm into week two reading Digital Reading: What's Essential in Grades 3-8 by Franki Sibberson and William L Bass II with some of you who also are slicers.
