Charlie wanted to watch BossBaby and cuddle. Up too late staying at the shop. Saturday morning dragging him out early isn’t realistic so we camp out with the guitar parts. I promised him the movie even though it was late. He helped me doodle on a sheet of watercolor paper that was half his and half mine while we watched. Making art today almost didn’t happen.
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.
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.
