Back to the Grind
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.
