So far this summer, I've had a little free time for either art or blogging, but not both. I've chosen art. Which just means we have a lot of catching up to do! When I'm having trouble finding real time to spend in the studio daily, it helps tremendously to have my sketchbook with me wherever I find myself. You'd be surprised how much you can accomplish in a few minutes here and there. I'm still working on my drawing skills, but thankfully blind contour drawings are perfect for waiting in line or hanging out with friends.
A most unfortunate drawing of my daughter. She's way cuter than this. Really.
We've had such a crazy few weeks! Our septic tank backed up into the cellar flooding everything including all my old photographs, my husband and I celebrated our 19th anniversary, we enjoyed a week with family from out of town, we transformed our back yard into an amazing party venue, and hosted a wedding at our home for dear friends including two wedding parties, and all of this on top of school (we homeschool through the summer), my husband pastoring our church and still working full time as an RN! And did I mention the dog killed one of our chickens on the morning of the wedding? (He even left the head--gulp!--on the back doorstep. He was so proud!)
Sigh. I truly think I could hibernate until fall. But who has time for that? I'll just stick to my drawing and call myself incredibly blessed.
