OBSESSED


That is really the best description of this manic sketching phase I am in.
This rather exotic face began last night before sleep.
6:30 a.m. the alarm goes off and before I even click the coffee pot to "on"
I have the journal in my hands, #2 pencil (yes, a mere #2 writing pencil)
grab my color pencils and for 5 glorious minutes I play, then do the coffee
Then 5 more minutes.

The lighting on my creamy pages is not good here
and she is far from finished..but I had

to share with you that I am simply obsessed!!

AND, THE TINY STAY IN RAIN WAS SHORT LIVED.

IT BEGAN YESTERDAY ONCE AGAIN

AND TODAY IT IS BACK

UUUUURRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!

Good news: Found a roofer!!! Came today to assess the damage.
Says he will be back on Friday since it's supposed to clear up.
I certainly hope so on both accounts.

I think in total there have been six days and nights of rain here...not necessarily
on the other side of Saddleback Mountain...a few miles away
where I work..
But here in this town
It's as if the system keeps going round and round and not leaving.


I have more things to share, but I must sleep
(and maybe draw a bit first...somebody stop me!!)

Girl, you have caught the bug, the sketching bug. Your ladies are beautiful. And isn't it great to feel like catching 5 minutes here and there. Yes that is obsession. Notice I said "feel like". I'm still feeling like crap. And I'm getting dang sick and tird of it.

Your two angels winged out of my little town yesterday. They were so happy to know where they were going. Thank you for shopping my etsy.
xoxo
