make it through monday: no. 3.

Mondays are the toughest day of the week. The weekend’s behind you, and five grueling days of work lie ahead. So, each Monday, we’re showcasing something that we’ve made, with the hope that it inspires you . . .

Despite my fervent efforts to stay organized, at the start of each week, something is released into the atmosphere and any ounce of organization that once kept me sane quickly disintegrates.   I wake up resenting alarm clocks as I force my head off the pillow, slowly moving from my bed, to my closet, to the bathroom sink, fantasizing along the way about the nap I swear I’ll take as soon as I get home and never do….and before I know it, I’m running late again.  I pull a sweater out of the dirty laundry, throw on some deodorant, grab my purse,  and as I reach for the car door, I realize that I forgot to get directions….or I picked up the wrong set of keys….or I’m wearing the one pair of black tights that has a hole on the back of the thigh, exposing that hefty bruise I acquired during last week’s race out the door.

So with this seemingly unavoidable frustration in mind, I call this one, “Ode To Everyday” – a 56″ x 71″ drawing on paper using pastel, watercolor, gesso, and colored pencil– because, let’s face it, Monday morning can’t be blamed for the next six days that I manage to  leave the house forgetting something crucial…
