WARNING: incoherent ramblings about to occur.
Just when I have it all figured out life decides I have things to do that I knew I had to do.
All is good, all is smooth and then yep, life says I must do this. I made a choice at some point in the past so now it’s time to “just do it”.
I must power through. When it’s all done I can sit back and reflect; how in the world was I able to do that?
The stress scale is nearing the top. Anyway, enough of my self-pity party.
Let me tell you what I accomplished this week as it pertains to my art work. Not much, as is reflected in the heading of this post: Life got in the way.
Well, crap … I am rambling. Focus man, focus!
Let’s try this again.
I did manage to continue “My Dailies”. They have become a habit, this is a good thing. I also finished a mixed media drawing using graphite and ink. I was pleased with the final result.
Over the past few weeks I have been messing around with some “silly” doodles. I have plenty of quality paper scraps (I cut paper to my preferred sizes). Instead of wasting it I have been doodling bugs on the off-cuts.
They require about 5 minutes of my time. I draw directly with a micro pen and then, if I have the desire, I colour them using watercolours. I have no regard for the rules of drawing. Some of them look quite stupid or some might say “cute”.
Oh yeah, if you read my last post I did boast about doing daily colour sketches. Did I manage to continue … NOPE! Life got in the way. I’ll try again this week, no promises.
Again, to reiterate, … Life gets in the way (of enjoying life).
For my email readers I have included the header image for this post below.
