I am not a "down" person and never have been. I consider myself to be quite "even-keeled, so I'm pretty sure that I will have kicked this funk before long this morning. Meanwhile, I am in my jimjams drinking a cup of black coffee in my art room. My surroundings are certainly conducive to feeling good.
At any rate, I had little Miss 3 for most of the day yesterday and she was a delight, but she really wore me out. She is a little busybody, jabberwocky, bossypants - the most fun you could hope to have with a 3 year old. I am, however, feeling my age today. And I am going to have her on Wednesday from mid-afternoon until past her bedtime. Little Miss 7 will ride the bus to our house. The hubster and I will take them to their house after dinner and get them bathed and to bed and stay there until their Mom gets off work sometime after 11. This is definitely not the time of year to be working at Toys R Us. The poor dear has no life this time of year.
I am planning to go to Mason with the hubster this morning and then am going to spend time working on a face that I've drawn on watercolor paper. I haven't decided if I will use watercolor or colored pencil or water soluble wax crayons, but I will certainly get some color on it.
I modeled it after Tam, but have made her nose too big and there is something wrong with the curve of her cheek and the shape of her eyes. I'm pretty sure if I hadn't mentioned who I used as a model, you never would have guessed. Here is what I have so far.
I am also hoping to get some homemade soup made today. I bought more chorizo yesterday and am planning to make a double batch of the soup and freeze half.
I hope you are having a good day without any "out of whack"-ness and that you will have some art to share with me.
I love all your comments and really appreciate being a small part of this huge community.
