I have begun a sketch for my next painting, a black horse from photos I took of the wild horses of Corolla.
We have opened all the presents, ate many of the cookies and quite a bit of fudge, travelled across country to see family and barely beat the east coast blizzard on our way back home.
Kids are home from school for a little while longer, trying not to lose my rhythm of painting daily while they are home. So I sneak in a few minutes before they wake or after they are in bed.
Have to wonder how the animals in our life feel when vacations come and routines change, I am sure it is stressful for them, with company coming and going, dinner time changes, playtime disrupted. We are all creatures of habit, routines can be so comforting, I have come to love my painting routine, very comforting to play my music and study my photos and paints and brushes.
Hope to have more to share with you shortly.
