Frogs have an odd sense of humor.
Tomorrow begins #Inktober. I hope to play with Sumi ink and remember some of the things my dad taught me about Chinese painting.
In the past several days we had trespassers we had to call the county sheriff for, I had a couple of agent rejections, my dad has had recurring dizzy spells (he’ll be 80 next year), and a dear family friend (our age) died of cancer.
This old sketch (5 minute Inktober drawing) kind of captures how I feel right now.
I bought some shiny things (Captain…extra points for Browncoats) at Bead Works in Vancouver this summer and finally got around to making a bracelet with it.
Doesn’t look half bad.
I think I’m back in the art game for now. Even though Yvette may be the only person left playing along, I will celebrate Selfie Art Day today!
Here is Yvette’s post: https://yvettecarol.wordpress.com/2016/09/25/selfieart-day7/
and here’s my attempt. It’s more of an illustration of me and my mom than a true selfie. If you’ve played along, let me know and I’ll compile a list in a couple of days!
I’ve not painted a landscape in over 2 decades but decided to give it a try when my friend Robin and I got together to play with watercolors (which I also hadn’t really worked with in a couple of decades…not as fine art anyway). It was a fun way to break in the Arches watercolors pad my sister gave me.
It’s the start of astronomical fall today (climatological fall started the 1st of September). I can’t wait for cooler weather!
It’s the start of harvesting-processing (canning and freezing) season for us, the busiest time of year. I feel like we’re the ants in the story, saving things for winter.
As well, I have some revising I need to get to, so I’m going to take another blogging break to try and get it all done. I hope to be back in a month.
My sister and I used to watch this show called That’s Entertainment, a compilation of movie clips from 20th Century Fox based on a particular theme each episode.
These critters’ entertainment is much more low-tech.🙂 Hand puppets are classic, though.
