Since we started school (a couple weeks back now), I’ve read less and art-ed more. Nothing I want to share, just sketches and randomness. But it’s been too long since I’ve shared a “Creative MoJo” so here’s my current project:
I’m not completely satisfied with it. LOVE the saying, “Reading is like breathing in; Writing is like breathing out.” But it’s not looking exactly how I want. I had fun with the swirlies in the background but I’m painting this on canvas and it’s not allowing for the calligraphy-like text that I want. Grr. My brain thinks up these things but I’m not quite talented enough to execute them. This might need a clean slate, starting over again with a different medium. Or maybe, I’ll just hang it on the wall.
Also, my car was on its last legs and, instead of sinking a couple grand to fix it up, I decided to get a new car. Usually, I’m practical. As a Libra, I tend to make lists, weigh options, spend hours debating and then go with the most practical of those options.
But, in a continuing effort to break out of my dark, depressive funk, I’m trying to find more things that make me happy. (I’m still battling thoughts of how selfish it feels, to be focusing on myself so much but this is the way it has to be right now for my mental and physical health. And, yes, I have to keep telling myself that.) So, after a long, hard debate, consulting with friends and family, and many lists later, I bought a car.
And it’s something not completely practical. Something I’ve wanted since high school. *clears throat* Ladies and gentlemen, may I introduce BlueBelle, aka BB:
Isn’t she pretty?
