The challenge: Create some form of visual art, no matter how small, each day for a full year.
The plan tonight was to do some watercolor and watch some baseball.
Note that I don’t have any watercolor to show you…
My daughter has a cold, and I put her to bed right on time. I rubbed some Vick’s Vapor Rub on her chest and feet, turned on her humidifier, and left the room. My long haired dog had a few matts that needed to come out, so I bribed him with carrots while I cut out the knots.
The next thing I know, a pitter patter of little feet heads toward my room. It’s my kid with some made up excuse as to why she was up. I think she just wanted more mommy time, so I let her feed the dog more carrots while I finished cutting his hair. Then I put her back to bed and she asked if I could lay down with her. I did. I checked the baseball score: Atlanta 2, Brooklyn (I mean LA) 0, and she started coughing and really couldn’t stop. I got her more vapor rub, and she went right to sleep. So did I.
I just woke up. Apparently, the Dodgers decided they wanted to play baseball again? And the score is now 2-7 Dodgers, so that tells you how long I slept.
Anyway, so while I can’t show you a watercolor acorn, I can show you my initial shading progress with my rose:
I’m hoping to finish the initial shading tomorrow.
I’m going back to sleep. Have a great evening, folks!
