Yesterday was one of those days where I needed to go to bed at like 2 in the afternoon, but somehow managed to keep pulling energy stores from the most hidden nooks and crannies of my body. When I started painting this image I tried to tell myself “don’t worry if you do not finish it, it will still count as a day” but in the end I could not stop painting until I felt it was complete enough. Naturally, that meant that on a day when I woke up at 4am I stayed up until after 11pm only to be back up at 3:50am. Needless to say I am a walking zombie and could at any moment fall asleep; maybe while typing this post, washing my hands or attempting to eat toast, who knows! The motivation of a treat this afternoon is currently keeping the wheels turning, a delicious iced coffee from my most favorite coffee shop in the world, Yes please. Thank you P.S. Deli for existing. Anyway, enough about my lack of sleep, the image below is another study on mice. These images are just sample illustrations meant to someday be used as reference points. Enjoy and see you next time!
They were totally worth staying up for. They are magnificent!!! I totally understand staying up too late painting. I do it all the time. Get that coffee and do the Friday dance!
Why thank you! Made it through the day with the help of a much needed coffee…. now off to paint again!
