Made my first Alt+Library Meetup last night and had a blast making bad art.
I made certain to leave the house with plenty of time to make it across town. Not familiar with the location of McKinley Library, I parked around the corner and enjoyed my early evening walk. McKinley Park is beautiful and last night plenty of others were taking advantage of the cooler temperatures by walking dogs or going for a run.
I had enough time to take a few photos of the pond before heading to the library/community center for the Bad Art Night.
Bad Art Night involved making art that was bad in subject matter, bad in execution, or both. I really enjoyed channeling my inner child and playing with paint, crayons, glitter glue, beads, feathers, pom-pons, and stickers to make a truly hideous work of bad art.
While my creation did not win any of the bad art prizes (yes – prizes!), I had so much fun. The only downside was not having enough daylight left to walk the doodles when I got home.
To make up for the lack of walking yesterday, I took the dogs for a longer walk this evening. Temperatures are cooler again today, so the dogs were eager to spend more time outside.
In the last half of our walk, we discovered this slithery critter warming its belly on the warm cement.
All in all, two very pleasant evenings. I’m definitely going back to McKinley Park, but bringing the doodles!
