Wake Me Up When It’s Presidents’ Day

Is it the weekend yet? The blog has been feeling a little neglected the past few days, due to the fact  that it has been CRAZY busy around here.  It’s just one of those weeks… something scheduled every day, the “social butterfly” lifestyle that leaves me feeling more exhausted than cool.  I don’t have time to paint or write . . . I barely have time to eat!

Here’s another thing that I missed when I was too busy: The Sketchbook Project 2011I’d sworn I’d fill up the Moleskine (after all, I bought and paid for the chance to be in the exhibit), but after all the holiday rush, the pages were still blank.  I need what my mother calls “brain space” to concentrate on art – blocks, not seconds, of free time to complete something like that.  And when there’s no brain space available, sometimes you just have to call it quits.

Just because I’m not participating this year, doesn’t mean the traveling Sketchbook Project exhibit isn’t worth checking out.  And hey, it starts right here in Brooklyn this weekend!

Go see the thousands of sketchbooks from February 19-27 at:

  1. Annie! You do Art House things? That’s awesome! One of my really good friends owns Art House. Have you been to the Art Library in Williamsburg yet? You should totally check it out, I think you’d love it. 🙂

    • That’s such a funny/small world!! I actually haven’t been yet, but looking forward to having a free day to check out the Sketchbook exhibit this weekend. I’ll have to look into their other events, too!

  2. I go to pretty much all of the events, so just let me know when you plan to go! It’s a really chill space.
