What’s Homesteading Artist About?
Glad you ask. Its about showcasing my personal artwork and what influences my style and subject matter. I am often distracted by the beauty of the everyday happenings around my home while going about chores. A variegated wildflower rescued from my lawnmower would make a pretty picture! As would the bright red skin of freshly washed potato. And aren’t vintage seed packets lovely? But I digress….
The point is – there are many beautiful distractions on a small suburban homestead to keep creative ideas flowing. Having enough time to make art is another matter entirely!
This blog can be described as “seasonal”. In addition to a multitude of routine household chores (baking, cooking, cleaning, washing, repairing…) I grow vegetables, herbs and do yard maintenance. So from April until September, this blog goes into “cybernation” – my term for hibernating blogs. They are still “alive” just not moving much!
But stick around. Homesteading Artist comes out of hibernation when the harvesting is done!
