We have had a whole weekend of sunshine, it makes such a difference, I hung my washing outside to dry this morning for the first time in months and I even did a bit or gardening this weekend. When I say gardening that’s not really what I mean, I am not much good with plants. But if you have a patch of ground that needs clearing of everything, then I’m your (wo)man ;-). I also mowed the weed patch and I am still of the opinion that we need to get rid of the grassy areas. T is only interested in growing vegetables, fruit and flowers so the grass gets neglected and more and more weeds grow there. Paving or something that doesn’t grow seem much appealing .
I’ve been practicing faces because I need to have a face I’ve drawn for the next stage of the Mermaid Circus. Having drawn the face we then copy it, cut it out and collage it onto a page of our book to create another mermaid. So far my faces are not up to much, although I can see some improvement on my first attempt. Several artists have told me that to learn a new skill, you just have to keep doing the work. Like maybe if you do it 100 times at the end of that you will be creating some good work. I don’t think I have time to do 100 faces but I am trying to do one a day. I don’t feel ready to share them just yet.
Here is another mandala from my Circles of Wisdom book. Sometimes words are not necessary.
Have a great week and I’ll see you soon.
