Picture Book Look


on January 8, 2015

Okay, so a bit of an explanation seems to be in order.

First, I am having to save my blog posts as drafts right now, because for some reason, WordPress keeps saying I have to verify my email, but I have yet to receive an email from them. I have emailed Support, but no response yet. Probably due to the holiday?

Second, my goal is to draw a sketch daily, and blog as I have time. That being said, I did neither yesterday! Yeah for me! Two days out, and I’m falling down already. Lol. Well, the short story is that our five month old puppy had to have stitches in his paw, and we live in a rural area, an hour and a half away from the vet. Ugh. Complicating yesterday, was the crazy stomach virus my teenage son came down with in the morning. Crazy in the number of trips the poor kid had to make to the restroom — something like 13 for all you understanding parents out there. Poor kid! Suffice it to say, I was plenty busy yesterday and, well, that’s how it goes in families.

Today has been better. The puppy is patched up and my son has made an incredible turnaround! So I was able to get in a quick sketch based on the cover of the book, “Celebrate Christmas with Carols, Presents and Peace.” That brings me to an issue I was faced with on Day One: sketching on limited time, do I work on the same sketch day after day until it is complete, or do I move on to a totally different piece each day. I decided that I would start something new every day. šŸ™‚

Well that’s it for today, except to say that I signed up for a beginning drawing class offered through our public library. I’ve taken assorted sundry other classes from them in years past and have never been disappointed! I bet this will be the same.
