Haven’t drawn today.. in fact, to be honest, the whole “oh! yes! i’ll do a drawing in my small grey journal every single day from now on!!” has been a sham since feb.11th. And really, I only drew for 4 days in a row and then one sketch 4 days later…which was the 11th!
Now, I’m not really worried that it’s gotten off to a less than routine start. I’ll get back to sketching, and I don’t need to be a nazi about doing artwork! Especially since I’m genuinely motivated and inspired for the first time in about a decade! Seriously..10 years! Im not afraid, thats for sure! Im being an artist. Being.
Even though I havent been drawing or painting, I HAVE been creating! Cleaning, unpacking, decorating my studio. I actually know where my paints and brushes are now and have been using my drafting table to write notes and letters. (Gets me into the habit of being in my studio.)
Ive been watering the plants with recycled dish/laundry water…this is the first time Ive known about ALL the cool plants here…knew about some already. We have a pear tree..with pears on it! A peach tree with 3 peaches that the possums havent found ..or cant reach…yet. I found a lone apple on the tree in the rose garden and plucked it early since Cam loves green apples. It was tiny, but nice to use with lunch..I had a taste. Need to find out more about figs, as we have those out front too! The roses and lavender arent dead from the drought, but I plan to help them out with a little extra water whenever possible.
Ive be de-cluttering, reading and writing. Helping Cam organize his workshop. (He’s been making cool stuff too!) Gonna try scanning stuff tomorrow. There are lists and ideas forming. These rusty wheels are turning once more..stay tuned!!!
