The Possibility of a Blank Canvas (October Challenge Day 2)

Sunday is supposed to be the day of rest. But somehow, it’s one of our busiest days of the week. It’s always full of grocery shopping, farmers markets, laundry and cooking for the week. Inevitably, we think we’ll still manage to squeeze in something social or shopping or whatever. Today was no different, and here we are at the end of the day with time waning and a busy work week looming before us. Of course, my to-do list still has items on it, and I have no idea when they’ll happen – next Sunday, I guess?┬áSo, rather than dwelling on all the mundane things I did today, and the rest that I didn’t, I thought I’d share a bit about a fun and more creative project we took on last weekend.

Recently , Ryan has taken an interest in colors and coloring. So, we painted two 2′ by 4′ plywood boards with chalkboard paint. Tough, eh? Probably the easiest kid-oriented home improvement project ever undertaken.

They might not look like much. But really, these are canvases for HOURS of entertainment to come. $20 INCREDIBLY well spent.

 

Artists at work.

Early typographic training is underway!

Erase and repeat.

The artist in her element.

Plywood, a can of spray paint and some chalk. BRILLIANT.

And so, as we start our week and get caught up in the day-to-day melodrama of life and work, here’s to keeping our perspective fresh, creative and new – with eyes open to the possibility of blank canvases…
