A new project

One Woman's Trash- an artist draws her garbage.
This is a daily drawing challenge, and a sustainability challenge, at the same time.  I'm drawing everything I throw out.  Not my compost or recycling, but the things I put in the garbage-for-landfill bin.

So far it's been just a week, and I'm sure it's going to change as it goes along but I'm hooked.  It's weird to spend so much time with my garbage and think about how it came into my life.  The act of drawing forces me to look at each piece.  So far I'm not bored while I'm drawing, carefully recording each wrinkle in a crumpled tissue, I get lost in drawing no matter the subject.
And I have already refused to buy things so I wouldn't have to draw the packaging!
