i spent most of the day today in the art room finishing up a few projects, sketching some new ideas, working on a commission and having so much fun. part of the time i listened to music, often singing along to some of my favorites. other times i enjoyed the quiet letting my thoughts run free. during one of those reflective moments i was thinking about a post that steviewren wrote a few days ago. it was about clotheslines being banned in many towns as they are viewed as an eye sore. i thought back to all the time i spent at the clothesline growing up, hanging up the family wash and then enjoying the wonderful smell when it was time to take everything down. it wasn't until i moved to ohio ten years ago that i quit hanging clothes out to dry. i miss it so much! so the above piece is my little tribute to the iconic american clothesline and my belief that a simple life is happier and much more carefree! thanks, steviewren, for the inspiration!
