I woke up around 5.30 am and couldn’t get back to sleep. That wasn’t the start I wanted for the day. It’s taking every bit of energy I have at the moment to keep powering through life…and today I had barely recharged.
By 6.30 am I was crying my way through French. Things that should be easy to remember, aren’t. It made me question just how good I can be at learning when I’ve had memory problems for so long. Why don’t I know the difference between ‘ma’ and ‘mon’ or ‘sa’ and ‘son’. I mean, looking at those now, I feel like I should 100% know what they are and when to use them, NOPE.
Today’s drawing challenge topic; cupcakes. This is a delicious topic and one that shouldn’t be too hard. I’ve been eating cupcakes all my life. Cupcakes sure have gotten fancy and I first tried drawing a ‘mermaid cupcake’. The cupcake was too big and I had no room for the mermaid tail. I scrapped that and decided on some dark chocolate cupcakes with raspberries instead.
Next, I set up my paints and tried to get creative. I went for a simpler painting than the landscapes I’ve been tackling, at least, that’s what I originally thought. My inspiration can be found here.
While I enjoyed painting the plants, I really should have made them bigger. There wasn’t enough colour for me to keep the plants so small. I’m not happy with it. I’m going to try again next week and give it more of my own flair. (If i can find some flair.)
That was about all I could muster up for the day. I’m feeling a little under the weather. A couple of days of taking it easy should help.
Day 28: What is something/someone you miss?
The thing I miss the most is my mum. She passed away not long after my 21st birthday. I needed her then and I still need her now. It hurts too much to even think about today.
