exercising or… exorcising?
building up instead of tearing down
“Keep this up — and — we’re gonna get really strrrrrooooooonnnnng!” Thalia squeezed Drawist’s biceps.
“Not bad.” Although Urania was not pleased with the coat’s plaid lining (and a variety of other small slips of the brush) she felt it best not to say so out loud. To herself she whispered, Make space for learning. Make space for growth. Build on what’s working. “Good call to pull out Paintist’s watercolor markers Tal. The scanner picks up the color nicely.”
Huh… The two of them are getting on well this morning. Even though she’d just had breakfast, Calliope slipped off to the pantry for a few celebratory cashews.
Words from Typist:
My body (and Henrietta!) have yet to recognize shifted clocks.
We’re off to an early and cheerful start this Monday.
On our morning stroll, I noticed some neighbors also up and at ‘em ahead of schedule.
I smiled at their lit houses in solidarity.
Yesterday I experimented with digitizing/scanning recent 3mm artwork.
A friend suggested making the muses accessible via cards/paper goods.
Sweet! I love that idea!
I learned soft watercolor shades do not scan well.
After sleeping on it… an idea to experiment with watercolor markers materialized.
Although I agree with Nia… that there’s room for improvement… Yay! for learn, grow, build… play!
And about those trips to the pantry… How about a few push-ups or lunges in exchange for each pilferage?
Building strength indeed!
In the Northern hemisphere, it’s muse-wear sweatshirt season.
9 more days to order. 😉
