Under the weather

Last week equated to zero art and lots of recovery. I managed to finally receive a third shot of Pfizer! Hurray! However, my body really disliked this third round. It doesn’t get easier for my body to deal with the experience and it used pretty much the entire 72 hours to recover. Once it left my body, I was up tackling normal household stuff that didn’t receive attention while I was down. Then we cooked like crazy people Saturday for a family gathering on Sunday. We had a total of 11 attending. It made me so happy to see everyone. No photos because we were all just enjoying the time together.

Early stages of Lamb and Ewe drawing

Today, Monday, started calmly and then became a bit more involved. A week without any serious art was hard so I chose today to start a large drawing. All of my previous colored pencil work have been on 11″ x 15″ sheets. I’ve jumped into a grand format: 38″ wide by 48″ high. The image is one from a farm visit during lambing. This is the same farm I receive wool from. The image is currently all in charcoal on Arches Rives paper. Will it remain only charcoal? I don’t know, only time will tell. You’ll just have to wait until next week to find out.

Thanks for reading!
