Oh lawd, left handed drawing is frustrating af! Day 15: Here's Looking at You! Draw a self portrait, 10 mins dominant vs. non-dominant hand. #64millionartists #selfportrait #drawingchallenge I have never done anything like this before. @64millionartists #64millionartists challenged us to go with the flow this week, to let wet paint do its thing. The weather is warm so we headed out to the garden and played with paint. It was so relaxing, quite messy but a lot of fun. After the paint had dried I went back to the pictures and just used some simple lines to highlight what I could see. And of course there's a poem, a Haiku Go with the flow Wet paint goes where it goes Nobody knows #paint #expression #art #garden #visuallyimpairedartist #inkdrawing #geometricart #linedrawing #abstractartwork #family #relaxation #mindfulness #createeveryday #poetryagainstcovid19 #covid19poetry #stayhomeandwrite #stayhomewritepoems #coronapoetry #isolatednotdisconnected #64millionartists #letitflow #createtoconnect Tea,Grapes and Cola A lovely Let It Flow from Lucy for #TheWeeklyChallenge #64MillionArtists >>> ️ Safe at home?

It seemed very ironic in a time where things have been canceled right and left. The "everything" was added after the picture was taken. The game did not have futuristic vision to know that 2020 would be the year of canceling. The game was still fun and produced a lot of good laughs! #64millionartists #eyetoeyegame #makingthebestofquarantine From my moonlit firepit to yours....

We play a lot of games as a family and have a huge stash of all sorts; we've decided to play every one over the next few weeks and get rid of those we no longer enjoy to make room for a few more. Any you'd recommend? No one younger than 14 so they can be quite complicated. But... I have very little vision and so they need to be quite accessible but we can make most things work with the help of phones and gadgets @rnib #visuallyimpaired #family #games #boardgames #haiku #poetry #covid_19 #covid19poetry #stayhome #poetryagainstcovid19 #CreateToConnect #64MillionArtists Game On My current isolation game is to see how many other things I can find which also seem to be in isolation. “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free...” (watercolor & ink - available for sale) From the inscription at the base of the Statue of Liberty. A poem by Emma Lazarus. I have not been able to get the image of the US Naval Hospital ship comfort in juxtaposition to the Statue of Liberty as it floats into New York City harbor out of my mind.
