Day 174

I woke up just after 7 am and felt pretty good. The weird funk from yesterday had lifted and I was ready to fill my day with creative things.

I started the day watching some Good Mythical Morning while sipping coffee. Once hubby had left for work, we contemplated working out but wifey needed some time.

So I picked up the guitar and spent a few hours playing and singing. I found a couple more songs that I could play; Pink – The One That Got Away, Jewel – You were meant for me.

Around lunchtime I put down the guitar and finally got to working out. It felt good to be doing it. It seems I enjoy doing it so much that I really do want it to be the first thing I do in the day. I got through it in about 24 minutes and I sure am feeling it now.

I was trying to wait for my art supplies before I did any art, so I moved onto French. Today it was time to start a new topic; ‘Restaurants’. There are lots of food, furniture and people words. The only thing I can remember is ‘la table.’ At least the new word journey has begun.

After that I did a little practice with a ‘Sharpie’ ink pen. I found a tutorial on Pen and Ink Sketching: 6 Shading Techniques and I tried that. Working with ink is interesting. You have to be so much more confident. This line practice was pretty eye opening.

I finished the ink practice and Homer dog alerted us to the mailman. It was very exciting. My art supplies had arrived!!!!! I ripped into the packaging to reveal my goodies. There’s watercolour and gouache paints, watercolour pencils, sketch pencils, craft kits, dual brush pens and paintbrushes. This should keep me creative for some time.

I fiddled with some of the new art supplies and drew a teacup. By the time I was done it was too late to get a photo, the sun had already set.

It was a fulfilling type of day. I feel so inspired to create art and learn how to use watercolours. I hope your day has made you smile.
