Day 6 - Eyes Wide Shut

Day 6

Make something with your eyes closed.

Day 6 - Eyes wide shut
Beetles and Grass

The point of this exercise was to let go of "preciousness," as the originator of this challenge states, "our need for getting things right." In seeking perfection we can miss creative and learning opportunities that only come from trying new things and making mistakes along the way. I blindfolded myself and drew this with colored pencils. Each time I felt "finished" with a color, I set it outside the box and chose another pencil. Interesting that this assignment should come the day after the candy dish that still cannot be finished. Did I learn any lessons here? Maybe.
