I took yesterday off so can't skip out today. I'm involved with my hardest challenge - drawing - and get totally absorbed . I had the beginnings of a design when my aunt was here but it has blossomed into a whole lot more and is not yet in it's final stages. I am also varnishing solely, after finally finishing with painting yesterday. It's been a siege!
Sis in law just left and we discussed the problems of the world but came up with little. Some days we seem to have all the answers. Today, only questions. She gave me advice on the drawing and I was really pleased. Are there any other people who can draw well out there?? Aunt J is gone. I'm on my own here.
Music is always here, playing along, encouraging the artist within. My aunt says I have to slow down, have a model or somewhere to start. I start in my head. I want what is in my head to come out - easy and immediately. For that there is a song or two. This is my prayer for today: Easy by Lex Land and Make it Easy by Dr. Hook. These songs make it seem possible. I know I'll have this drawing done in another day or two but I certainly stress along the way.
I took a walk in the beautiful sunshine today to de-stress. I'm sure it was helpful but a maid and cook would be great too. While I'm praying for life to0 become easy I could add....
