Next Daisy is up and we all go out the front to check for the paper and she has a pee & peek at whats happening today! Soon after my son was awake and we chat over coffee, next Norm- but he has a new prop. to put out so he's off to the garage before breakfast.
I'm use to it. A peaceful Sunday it's expected to be.
My morning was blessed with an unexpected guest- when I ran out to put out the peanuts a tiny sparrow flew in my home! I let out my "Storm!" Alert yell- they came running and we caught the bird before it could hurt itself by flying into a window. This is twice now- the last time was a bluejay- how wonderful, yes of course I held it, calmed it, whispered it was sweet and then took it back out to go free- it was like shooting a rocket of love from my palm- quite cool if you ask me. My son out for the day left me a joint on the counter (I love it when he leaves me these little gifts, rolling hurts my hands. My right hand all the fingers have completely fused I can no longer bend any. I'm happy it happened slowly, I continued to paint through it and have learned how to hold my brush with no problems- a fork is another story. One more reason I'm happy to dine in. Throwing the ball for Daisy is a new adventure, we figured out a Frisbee is easier.
Bear & Fox are hibernating! I feel this way - today all 3 sit under my desk- content while I start to paint. I am surrounded by love- literally, every day. 2 legs & four. This was inspired by a vintage card from an artist in Norway.. it has me thinking winter and putting a Canadian Spin on a few paintings.
Good News! I've figured out the iPad - Kinda' I'll be posting my next time-lapse little painting for all who are 'learning from watching' like I do. I found this terrific young artist on line who provides great gouache tutorials: http://myriamtillson.storenvy.com myriamtillson.storenvy.com It is refreshing to see such young talent work as hard as she is, there are no excuses if you want to improve your talent- WATCH & learn!
Be in control of your own education.
I know what this young woman is NOT doing... do you?
She's certainly not sitting around watching mindless television every night.
She's not getting drunk, stoned.. baked- what ever you want to call it.
She's not out partying every night.. she is educating herself, improving her skills and spends a great deal of time in thought and will do very well in this life i think.
I'm on a mission to share more positive women role models.
They will have the tagline: FANTASTIC FEMALES. Myriam is one.
Have a terrific day, what ever you do.
