I wasn't a happy bunny yesterday. It's not like me and if I'm not careful I can end up getting a migraine and I sometimes think my whole life revolves around avoiding those dreadful things - so quick action was needed. What can I draw? Well, a happy bunny of course! After I had read a few of the EDMers blogs, one of the most popular resolutions is to do a drawing a day. I know I can't manage one every day but I resolved to get the drawing finished and I managed to kill two birds with one stone - I did this quick little drawing in that precious drawing book I mentioned before. Hopefully I've broken the curse! I started it in 1997 and it contained all of 3 drawings before I started the hand (in the last post). Perfection is certainly paralysing. I suspect, like alcoholism, it's not something that is cured but needs constant guarding against.
I'm happier having gone 'no mail' on one particular art quilter's chat group. I thought with all the top names in quilting there would be a certain standard there but it reminded me of a bun fight. On closer inspection it's much worse than that. (To be fair, it's probably a few giving the many a bad name). I hope it's not representative of the state of the quilt art world today.
