Today my husband and I celebrated our anniversary so I decided to take an easy day art-wise and not get into any new projects yet. We decided to go bowling...we figured out that it's been at least 6 years since we last went bowling. So, no, we're not good at it ;). But we had fun nonetheless! I personally think we should follow golf rules where the lowest score wins...
Below are a few pics...one from each game we played (we played 2) and one where the damn shoe kept eating my sock...I blame my performance on the shoe!
But in the interest of keeping up with my daily art project, I wanted to post something and not lose momentum. Like I said yesterday, I'm really enjoying the colorful birds on the black paper and am planning to do more of them. So, I decided to do some preliminary sketches of several birds to get a sense of their shapes and proportion before I commit them to the dark paper (where erasing is ill advised). I really wish I had taken up sketching earlier...I'm digging it :)
I had every intention of doing a drawing today but I guess the Universe had other plans for me today. I've been reading several books on how to improve my drawing and sketching skills so I spent a couple of hours this morning reading through one but I felt really sleepy before I could do any drawings. I've never been a good sleeper but it's been even harder to come by in the last few days, so I opted for a cat nap on the sofa. When I awoke, I felt compelled to find pictures of Kagero on our external hard drives. I haven't been able to look at pictures of her since we lost her last week without bursting into tears...I even had to change several profile pictures on various websites because it hurt so much to see her sweet face. But today, I had to look at them, all of them (and there are hundreds)...seriously compelled to look at them. At first I felt the pang of loss but I quickly came to feel like she was right here with me, that her presence was next to me on the sofa looking at them, too. It actually brought me much peace and immense gratitude. So, instead of a drawing today, I present some pictures of the best pup (I think) to have ever graced this world. I promise a new drawing tomorrow!
