art every day month #29: finding the balance

my-balance-picture

one final doodle for art every day month: my dirty little secret on achieving balance in life. if you know me, this will make perfect sense; if you don't, it will explain everything! i sketched it out at the swimming pool last night and plowed through the rest of it at wheatfields this morning with a cup of extra strong coffee and three hours of peace. my hand is about to fall off (these long doodles make me arthritic) so i'm off to find a bottle of ibuprofen, then coming back to finally start making some blog rounds. last day for the doodlesale - the coupon code BFCM2010 will turn into a pumpkin at midnight. see you tomorrow for list it tuesday!

I like this a lot. I've been feeling quite up & down lately and I like how you've embraced it; I'm attempting to do the same.

Kim Hambric said...

This is fantastic! I believe that balance isn't harmony and being on an even keel. It's just the average of all of life's chaos.

Karen Blados said...

Another unerringly accurate summary of my life. Is it an artist thing do you think?

Stephanie said...

love.

Leah said...

This is so perfect. I think I find balance this way too. Love your style, girl!

freebird said...

This actually sounds more like the reality of most people. We really don't go around balanced but instead are always balancing between the two sides. Nice poster.

aimee said...

thank you everyone!! and i'm laughing at myself here with that midnight statement, obviously assuming everyone is on the same time zone around the world. for the record, i meant CST. honestly i'll probably be zonked out before midnight my time, so chances are the code will be running through tuesday morning or whenever when i can work up the energy to log in and deactivate it. so as long as the code works, it's fair game for use!
