Mid Week Snow Day

Having the day off from work today is a real blessing for me. I do not mind having a break and staying in all day. It is a chance for me to relax a little and to work on some of my own work.

I have been very frustrated lately with my artwork. I managed to ruin two works in progress in one day which is discouraging. I know that it is partly because I am out of practice. I decided to keep it simple for the time being and just work in a sketchbook. I started a new Moleskine, a red one, which is a good luck color. I do like the way my fountain pen behaves on the slick paper, so it is an enjoyable experience.

Updates and Interesting Things:

  • Ester Wilson has redone her website and started a new blog after having her work stolen last year. I have been following her for years so I am happy she hasn’t given up posting online.
  • I saw this documentary about a woman who lived in the Siberian wilderness for years undiscovered. It really opened my eyes at what people are willing to do to escape religious persecution.
  • I got a new phone which I am really enjoying. I have never had a smartphone before and I really like having a better camera on me all the time. I got rid of my point and shoot camera and now I only have my phone and my DSLR. I opened up an instagram account but I am not sure how I feel about it yet. I figure I will give it a shot and see if I like it.
  • I am in the middle of decluttering and getting rid of stuff again. I will be moving for a few months while we undertake some renovations and I want to make it as simple as possible. This will be a lot of work but so worth it in the end.
