This is my latest painting, Guitar with Birds. Can you tell I've been listening to a lot of folk music recently?
I've been finding it harder and harder to find time to make art while working full-time and trying to be a good adult. But, when I snuff out time for drawing and painting, it tends to pop back out in unexpected places. This is the lunch I made for my husband yesterday:
Broccoli with sweet chili glaze and penguin onigiri
It's got me thinking a lot about the idea of living an artful life while still existing in reality. I think it is possible to be the sort of girl who's put together, has a full-time job, a beautiful home, is a good cook and hostess, a good wife, independent and interesting and impressive, witty and accomplished, well read, etc. I wish there was a blog or book that offered instruction in all areas of a modern girl's life -- everything from how to make a good mimosa and french toast to how to manage finances in a graceful way to super interesting cocktail trivia. Maybe it could have inspiring essays on sprezzatura and the importance of hobbies. Can someone please write this for me?
