Today is Friday. I'm not going to say much. I feel like Steve Prefontaine on the last laps against the Finnish Nemesis at the Olympics, I started strong, wowed the crowd and worried the Fins, but I think I kicked myself out and didn't leave much for the final laps. But I did my best and I guess that makes for an Overall good week.
I took some weird photos yesterday of a 9:25 sunset. Today its beautiful and I hope there is another one, although I might sleep early tonight.
The post yesterday flowed forth from me randomly and fluidly last night. After I wrote it I felt good. I wanted to draw really bad after. I was out of paper so I drew on the cardboard back of the empty pad. I just started drawing. I wasn't really sure what was going to come of it until it was finished. I looked at it, and I realized I had just drawn a snail. I wrote the words from the blog underneath, "Larry the magical emerald encrusted snail." I was pretty amazed that out of all the things I could have drawn that was what I ended up drawing and I really didn't plan to draw a snail. So below there he is. I'll write more this weekend, but to tell you the truth, I'm mush right now.Actually I talked to my brother on the phone for a while, and then I drew this tropical septor finned sucka fish from Bornio (not true, made that up). In response to HDT's comment, I never know what I'm gonna draw when I start. Whether its Larry up above there, or this sucka fish below I just start drawing until it starts to look like something. In the fish drawing below I used watercolor paints to color him in. Water colors are really hard, but I prefer them to color pencils because the color comes out so complete. I also like these little squares of cardstock I found in the art room.
