I loved this day! I woke up early on my day off, which I know is insane because I always want to sleep in and never do, but I got up, made my cup of tea and started painting. I was working from a sketch I did yesterday and decided to work on it further. I’ve always loved working with watercolors just because I love the way the media works, it’s different from other painting mediums like acrylics or oil. To me it feels a bit more free, but I know that is completely a personal opinion. I think I might continue with these images tomorrow.

As for the day it was a combination of early morning creative thoughts an afternoon or some intense working out and a dentist appointment and an evening of family time. You really can’t complain about a day like this. Now for anyone who is reading and going “shut up already, I don’t want to listen to your perfect day” well you’re in luck this is a rare fantastic day, but for JUST that reason I need to sit back and dwell on it for a bit.

I would like to add that today while painting and merely using my abstract image as reference my mother pointed out that the first image resembles a fish. This drives me crazy since it is now the only thing I see when I look at it but I am curious to hear what others think of the image, so if you have a moment please let me know. I always love some feedback and as these are merely works in progress there is always room for improvement. I’ll see you all tomorrow!

Okey doke, day two and going strong! Woohoo 48 hours! I was wondering what would come of today’s drawing knowing the challenging schedule I was up against, but to my surprise I found it quite easy to get into the groove despite the hectic day. I was working at the Salon from 9 to 12 and The Source from 1 to 9:30 with only an hour in between. Luckily, I started doodling early this morning and just kept building off of that idea all day.

It’s nice thinking about a drawing in the back of your mind all day, a good calm place to regroup at when your dealing with customers who are having a royal melt down over decorative paper and there you are trying to get them to realize what actually matters in life. I can tell you straight off the bat that decorative paper and rubberstamps are not life altering nor life changing issues that require that much intensity or stress. It’s like when people get mad about glitter, I just never understand. I don’t imagine I ever will though.
