Writing, art, and random acts of creativity…

Other Endeavors

A friend of mine turned me on to a creative meme called Index Card a Day or ICAD for short. The idea is to do something creative at least 6 days a week. The goal is to use an index card – just one. Anyone can find time to do a single index card.

It can be a drawing, painting, poem, prose. Anything you choose. I like the idea so I’m jumping on board. I don’t know if I will actually get it done every day, but I figure it’s worth a shot. Hopefully it will help me tap the creative process for writing as well.

My cards today are a flower and a butterfly. Both were painted with cheap watercolors on 4×6 index cards.



And one more, done with Flair markers.

    This is a marvelous idea! And it’s inspiring as I’ve been thinking about doing something similar. Very nice and I hope you keep it up!

    Glad you like it and I wish I could take credit for the idea. :)

    I do other painting as well, but this is so quick and simple that it’s hard to convince myself to miss a day (although I did miss yesterday… and I haven’t done today yet either. oops).

    I keep thinking I should take a couple of art classes, but it’s so hard to find the time.
