Weekend Work

I love weekends!  One might think that since I work from home the weekends aren't any different from the weekdays.  But they are!  I find I can be hard on myself during the week, telling myself to be more productive, make more designs, answer more emails, blog more, etc.  But on the weekends I can just let it all go.  And I'm often more productive on the weekends because I'm relaxing and not pushing myself to do more.

This is a series of drawings I did over the past week, with the majority of them happening over the last couple of days.  I've mentioned this before, but I love moving from design to drawing to painting to crafting and back again.  I think it keeps the work fresh, and it certainly keeps my brain artistically stimulated in a way that I love and need.

I have quite a few of these in the works so I'll be adding them to the site soon.  Some work better than others, but overall I am happy with the mix of painterly elements and the more strict graphic line work.

One of my Instagram friends said the one above reminded her of one of the old "canned ham" travel trailers.  I love that!  I love how abstract work lets the viewer contribute to the story!

I hope your weekend was awesome and that you had lots of time for relaxing/working!
