I am participating in a yearlong project called A Documented Life. The idea is to build a customized planner to use as planner, journal, and art journal. I started with the recommended Moleskine planner and have added “tip-ins,” extra pages hinged on decorative tapes. Each week the sponsoring artists supply a creative prompt. The first one was to draw or photograph or otherwise incorporate your front door. I’m not at all confident about my drawing skills, but I took the plunge and gave it a shot. I’m happy with the result.
Light is my word for 2014, so I wanted to incorporate that. And it seemed to make the most sense to view my door the way I most often see it: from the inside. I like thinking of my door as full of opportunity but also a way to stay safe when I need to.
