I missed a day. Three months into the bird-a-day project and I missed a day.
It’s my own damned fault. I spent all of yesterday with my new obsession: knitting. And somewhere at the end of the day, while getting ready for a party, I realized that nowhere in that time did I draw a bird.
AND I have been so stressed at work that I partied hearty. I drank three yummy lemon things in a row, and then danced like crazy. I came home well past midnight and passed out. This morning I woke up, woozy, at 9 a.m. with the private shame of knowing that I let a day go by without making time for my art project.
Now I am drawing two birds. Which is technically cheating. BUT to mark this mistake, I will draw the same bird twice – a head portrait and a full body image. so at the very least, it will be a purposeful adjustment to the mistake.
