I think it is because the last few lessons have just not been that interesting to me. The work is just not my style or way of working and I can't make myself like it enough to do it.
I have been working hard when I can on getting the feel for layering and color with the acrylics. I am slowly getting more comfortable with them. I bought some glazing liquid and just love it! It is much nicer than using water for glazes! The colors stay truer.
I am also getting geared up for our annual trip to Tucson. This year we have rented a condo for two weeks. I think this will be better than staying in a hotel. We can make our own meals or go out. We are not tied to the restaurant routine. That gets old fast.
I bought some new Pitt pens and a couple of new sketch books. I always love to sketch when I am away on vacation. It is really the best time for me to draw since I can't bring paints. It is just me and the sketch book. I especially love drawing on the plane. Once we get out west the aerial views are astounding and interesting to me.
Hopefully everyone here can live without me for two weeks. I am taking my mom grocery shopping this weekend so she doesn't run out of food. My grandson better remember his keys or he will be locked out in the cold.
Ah the cold. Two weeks without it is going to be a real treat!
I will most likely post again at least one more time before I leave!
