Going bananas, is where.
In the past two weeks I have done a large drawing, lost my admin account on my computer, had a break down, changed my sleep schedule and did more drawing…
Like I said bananas, crazy, or whatever you want to call it.
I will be posting pictures of the large drawing when I am able to get some decent photos of it. It is to big for me to take photos of on my own, about 3 ft x 3.5 ft, the largest sheet of paper I could easily get my hands on. Despite the subject matter I like how it turned out (how often does an artist say that?) Once I get some good photos of it I am going to add some more golds to finish it of. Metallics just do not photograph well.
Windows 7 has done it again. Locked me out of the primary admin account. This has happened so many times now, it is very frustrating. I have no clue what my spouse set the admin password as, so a new admin account is not forthcoming at the moment. ARGH… I have stuff on that account that I would like to work on.
I had a bunch of people coming over to crash at the house a few weeks ago. I spent so much time cleaning, in the heat (it was over 90f in the house.) I snapped. I could not clean anymore. I just stopped functioning for a while, and was a bad host. That weekend was one of the worst I have had in a while. Hot, tired, angry, playing host to a few friends. I feel kind of bad, but one can only do so much before they reach the end of their proverbial rope.
To deal with said heat I have altered my sleep schedule. I am not sure if it is good yet, but I can draw, exercise and do a few chores without getting heat stress or heat stroke. That is a big plus in my book.
I have two drawings for you today.
I bought some Gelly Roll gel pens and have been playing with them. Inspired by an artist I follow in Instagram (@katyanngilmore if you want to check it out.) Like most new media, I start off with flowers and I will work my way to more challenging things as I get used to the pens. I have already learned a few things.
1. Drying is important
2. They do blend! Just be quick about it.
