I know I'm not alone in this but sometimes I feel like the White Rabbit in Alice in Wonderland .... "I'm late, I'm late, for a very important date. No time to say Hello, Goodbye! I'm late, I'm late, I'm late!!!". With a number of household and family projects that I've taken on since retiring, and given that it's one of the busiest times for the garden, I seem to have less time than ever for my art. Still, I am getting things done and enjoying catching up on things that have been left far too long.
My art forum forces me to at least dabble with my brushes as I like to take part in all the projects. I painted my square for the Picture Puzzle. Look at the picture at the top of my side bar called "Making art fun". My square is in the top right hand corner of the picture - the body of the bird hanging off the side of the tree trunk.
I also painted this goose for the Monthly Painting Project.
As a treat for myself, I spent an hour yesterday with my pencils and knocked out this Daffodil. It wasn't intended to be a 'proper drawing', just a bit of fun, but it's turned out reasonable and so I might do a bit more to it ... especially the background.
And these small and quick pictures are all it takes to keep me in touch with my art and to 'scratch the itch'. Anyway, can't stop. I'm late, I'm late ......
