I came across this pic while searching for appropriate pictures for today's blog. I just fell in love with it and had to share....what can I say? I have a sense of humor?
I'll go south again - another 30 minutes, to pick up bags for the shop. We're running short and may not make it until next week. Then I want to drop by Wet Paint, a local art supply store, for some gel pens in colors that I don't already have and some regular colored pencils (turns out I only have watercolor pencils - what's up with that?). At some time in my back and forth, I'm expecting a phone call from my broker (it sounds much more impressive than it really is) about some CD's that need to be reallocated (sigh - there is just NOTHING out there that pays any money - very frustrating). When I finally get home I have a story in the works, a double drabble sitting in my mind, and Valentine wishes to send on, then I can crack out my pencils again and try to finish the pencil work for the primary illustration I'm working on as well as starting the other two illustrations I want which I think I can do digitally. Since CS5 is working again (thanks again, Seth!!!) I might be able to work on my DH's computer instead of my own slow clunker.
This piece is done using colored pencils. Pretty amazing work by artist Richard Klekociuk.
And I hope to speak with my friend in California again this afternoon, we've been talking every week for the past few and it's been pure joy. I hope all of you have as pleasant a day as I plan on, just a bit less hectic :-)
