crazy how behind i get.
sometimes it happens that the first thing you thought . . . it's just not right.
not new enough.
it doesn't test you.
the first idea; so normal and expected. [i mean, what! the first idea was a coffee one with a twist.]
but when it tests your belief in your work, your experience, your talent, your abilities . . .
that's when you're breaking through to something good. something new.
something that, after you run the last brush stroke over canvas, you realize it was good for you.
[the bird canvas coming soon was another new thing for me.]
and . . .
i'm obsessed with jesus culture music tonight.
it just doesn't. get. old.
remember when i said i was reading this? [again, way back in may.]
well, i didn't get through more than a few chapters.
i need to buy cold tangerines, though, because i didn't get to finish it before it had to go back. and we renew as many times as we can. it was so good.
a picture i found on some blog . . . dangit, can't remember where.
and my version of it.
hmm. that tree was a test. super huge one.
do you know how dang hard it is to draw/paint a tree?
if you do, and you like it, kudos.
so . . . are you reading anything? any books? any favorite books?
i'm about to start the yada yada prayer group series by neta jackson.
