Power Outage

David is back on the road. Poor dude had to get up at 4am to drive in a torrential downpour to Nashville and demo a song, then catch the bus. I worked as hard as I could at turning an alarming work issue around. When I picked up Charlie I really was thinking I would take us back to work and spend the evening there but we needed to buy fruit and green jello for his school party. Not long after we made it home and had some dinner it started storming and the power went out. It went out just as he started a movie and I had put paint on a palette. I let him drain my phone dead while I painted in the candlelight with a flashlight. The painting is a loose interpretation of the sun rising this morning. I don’t do many landscapes. Something I need to practice. One for the diary.

Owl Pig out on a Limb

The sun is finally shining. David finished our corporate taxes and bought us new tires for our little economy car. The tiny black Ford he drives the wheels off traveling back and forth to work…TN to OH then OH to TN. I wanted to sketch out a large mermaid tonight. I thought about it off and on while I sold guitar parts and drank coffee. I didn’t. It was too large to take on so I used watercolor and ink to make this mini, insane owl that has some pig qualities.

Birds of a Feather

Trying to create art everyday is proving challenging but I have made it 4 weeks. I have been posting a lot of it on Instagram and Facebook but I feel like some of it needs to be in my diary. I guess this is my new art diary. I have to understand some days it is just a doodle and that is ok. These two little dudes came to visit last night. Watercolor markers and black pen.
