If it’s true that our life is our art, then it’s very liberating, isn’t it? Being an artist means creating your inner self on some sort of canvas. You can paint your canvas with whatever floats your boat: you don’t have to live by anyone else’s expectations.
Unless you are a commercial artist working for a client, you can create your own version of what is pleasing. Consider even small tasks artful: arranging food on a plate for dinner; planting your vegetable garden to please the eye and the palette; hand writing a thank you note; or putting some fresh flowers in a vase. Actually, just taking the time to enjoy what you are doing and being glad that you are able to do it.
My solution for replacing the clothes drier is primitive but I couldn’t be happier. I bought one of those circular clothes lines and put it in a granite patio umbrella holder.
We live in the city and have no yard to speak of, but we do have an upstairs back porch where we grow some vegetables. There are also two apple trees we can reach from the porch so we affectionately call it "the farm". Here’s a picture of our urban farm. The clothes line is cheaper than running a drier; the clothes smell great; it’s better for the environment; and, yes, there certainly is an art to hanging the clothes on the line. Many people who do it regularly, will tell you they have a pattern for hanging and that they enjoy doing it.
