My drawing and painting life
I was not feeling too well last week. Some virus of sorts – it has been bugging people around me. And then it hit me too. Oh well. Some time to sit with a book or a magazine. Just sip some tea, do nothing.
Nothing? No, I cannot do nothing. Yes you can. No you can’t. (Some inner voices chattering haha)
No. I can not do no-thing. I find it is hard. I have all those ideas flying around in my head, they want out. As I have been making 101 birds in 101 days my mind is all prepped for making art. It felt like just behind the 101 birds another set of birds and things is waiting to appear*. To unfold**. To become unleashed***. But first I needed rest. I wrote some of it down. And just made a few little drawings. And left it at that.
And when I felt better, I first had to do some work for a customer. Not art related. Art will just have to wait a while.
By the way I am slowing down. And I will go into a spot of internet hibernation soon. Just to spend some time alone with the family. Make art perhaps. Go see some art? (Yes!)
So I leave with you with some good wishes for the new year: hope it turns out well for you. Myself, I hope to make a lot of art and spend more time with friends.
Thanks for stopping by! Stay safe, enjoy the free time if you have any, take care! See you around.
* Yes, some are an image in my mind.
** Yes, like a butterfly, or a bird growing in an egg, at present most are only partly developed).
*** Yes, some may be weird or silly or both.
