I haven't forgotten my goal of posting art at least once a week, just haven't felt like drawing or painting. I did one watercolor in February and I've been faithfully copying the Scavenger Hunt list but still lacked motivation. I found myself at Michaels wandering around before today's dental appointment. It wasn't like I was spending real money, I've been carrying a return card/store credit for months...jumped on the sale of Canson paper 6 pads for $10. It's not great stuff but it's good enough for sketching. Now I must use it all up!
All hopes for plein air dashed. My hands were tied all week, rather my feet were shackled. Mom wouldn't let me take the car to go hunting for a spot to paint (I don't understand her) and I couldn't lug all the stuff to the beach or to the hiking trail (a mile just to get there, I walked it with my camera) and still have energy to paint. Never got to play tennis, nobody to play with. I did get to an REI store to look for a portable, hand crank coffee grinder--they didn't have in stock. I did find a coffee shop within walking distance. I bought fresh roasted beans, but I still don't have a grinder. I might have to resort to my food chopper. I wanted a medium roasted blend. I expect the beans will be over roasted, I can smell it...even thru the cold that I caught.
