short art

I seem to enjoy creating what I consider ‘disposable’ art.  Art made on things or with things that have a short life.

braiding the girls’ hair –> braids are taken out within a day or two
hand-drawing gift tags –> thrown away with the wrapping
drawing seasonal displays on our windows and mirrors –> washed off the next season or to clean
doodling on zip-top bags for the girls’ lunches –> get thrown away after use

Although it’s not HausMillerAdventure completely in nature, I think I’m going to try to take photos of what I create and post them on here.  There’s something freeing in creating art that doesn’t have to last forever.  And it is a good exercise to find the art in the daily tasks of life, in the few minutes I have to let my mind go.

FUN FACT: as of February 4, 2017 it is still on the mirror. :)

Also, photographing mirrors is SUPER hard.

    MomMom, I truly see it as a gift. I love your notes and the messages, birthday greetings, etc. you’ve created over the years. Keep it up. Could become a marketable service. I love it!
