Back to the Grind

Getting back in the swing of things finally after a very quite allergy filled forth of July weekend. On Saturday I scratched my right eye so bad that I ended up needing to wear sunglasses to protect my eyes from light and air. But by Monday I was thankfully better and able to care for blee just fine. I hope everybody in the States had a good holiday and everybody else had a good regular Friday.

My Wacom tablet has been out of commission for awhile after a Linux update messed it up, so I have been bringing out my original love. My Moleskine. As much as I want to get better with the tablet I just like drawing in a sketchbook with my microns so much more. This Dover book called Art Forms in Nature by Haeckel is a wonderful tool for inspiration. What these doodle forms may lead to is up in the air. Maybe something wonderful or maybe nothing at all. But drawing does lead somewhere wonderful eventually.

I really need to sign up for that Monotype printmaking class at Mass Art! It is either this weekend or next and I shouldn't let this opportunity pass me by. I'm just very distracted by other obligations right now that I worry that I won't get the most out of it that I could if I were in a different mental space. I don't want it to be a waste of time. But saying that makes me realize how silly that is and how I am just making excuses.

Time to go work on the custom order and then get to bed early hopefully. I've been very tired these days and could use a good nights sleep. Blee has been napping like a champ, over three hours today, and I really need to take better advantage of it than I have been doing.

A scratched eye sounds painful! Hope you're felling better and pain-free now.
