>I got this notebook from a friend’s rummage sale as he was movin house and ridding himself of stuff. So, I went to the art supply store and bought special gel pens to use with this new notebook. I had fun sketching Sagis-boy.
>Tonight, I painted this skyscape. Though there has been a small percentage of a chance for thunderstorms as part of Arizona’s “monsoon” season, we didn’t have much cloud cover this evening. One gray wispy cloud floated around a bit. Most of my skyscape is made up of electrical wires and rooftops at the edges of great expanse of big blue sky.
Last night, Tad did yoga and I sketched him. I had fun painting this too. I was inspired by seeing Donna adding interesting colors to illustrations of people. I decided to let loose a bit and move away from the natural to the unnatural palette for skin colors.
>I took a quiz to see which hobby suits my personality. Unfortunately the quiz is pretty transparent and you can definitely skew the results if you tried. I didn’t try. I thought about each question and not what I thought the answers might mean. My results didn’t suprise me, though:
CREATIVEYou have a gift for expression. Whether it’s writing, drawing, creating objets d’art or making music, you see the world in a unique way and are able to convey that to other people. No doubt you doodle on napkins and meeting notes, are always humming a new tune, have already read the latest fiction releases, and know all the local art galleries’ schedules by heart. You might like hobbies like sketching, photography, sculpting, playing an instrument, singing, journaling, scrap-booking or designing clothing.
>It has been awhile. I haven’t been drawing much lately. I’m hoping my sketchcrawl tomorrow will jumpstart me back into sketching more. I’ve been reading a lot, though, which is good. I guess it has just gotten so darn hot around here that I don’t have the same energy as before.
>Please click here to read my blog post about the great new film Sicko and please, go see it. Americans need to see this movie and we need to start working to change our Health care system.
