No! No!

I don't want to go back to work!

But alas, I had no choice. It was back to the grindstone today. Sigh....Did I ever mention how much I envy those women who are blessed enough to be able to stay home?

I was going to start back to karate classes tonight as well, but I didn't . For one thing, it's cold here and my Jimmy has no heat. Secondly, my on again/off again chest cold seems to be on again. So I thought it best to stay inside.

What I did do today was to sketch again. I did this quick sketch in the 5 or so minutes left during my lunch break, after I'd finished eating. I know it's really light, but I ran out of time before I could finish with the shading and stuff.

This is actually my third attempt at sketching this rooster. I tried once last month, and didn't get but his beak drawn. A couple of days later, I tried again and here is the result.

I didn't like the way he was shaped in this one. His head seems too long. Oh, well. I'm going to keep on trying until a) I get it right, or b) I get sick of drawing him and move on to something else.

And last, but certainly not least:

Today's rows of the dishcloth KAL.

Both sketches are nice. It is just good to keep drawing whether it is daily or weekly or whatever. In reading an article by a guy who did a daily painting, he said that it made him look for art in life - to see art in everything around him. Often we wonder what to draw or paint because we do not have an "eye for art". That is one of my biggest problems. Lack of time is another problem :)

Me, neither. So I won't...

Lou, thank you. I'm still working on that rooster. I'm going to try to sketch at least 3-5 times a week. I used to do a daily sketch, which is why I started my blog in the first place, and I really enjoyed it. I missed doing it.

I think I do have an eye for art. I see composition, patterns, colors, and shapes in everything. My biggest problem is that to sketch something, it has to be right in front of me. That, and lack of time.

As for you, Buck, pbbbbttt!!!! :P
