Today I prepped a number of pages in a few art journals. I like to do that so I can express an image or some words at a moment's notice. I can be impatient like that, so … I plan ahead. Besides, I groove on building backgrounds, it's such an active meditation.
I prepped more garden today too, and planted about 60 baby onion plants, Bianca Di Maggio, an Italian heirloom. Tomorrow, if the weather cooperates (and maybe even if it doesn't) I'll get in another 60 or so of Yellow of Parma, another Italian heirloom. Both will be next winter's onions. I have another flat going of both as well. Onions and garlic, can you ever grow too many?
I started another sketch for my 29 Faces challenge, again to practice drawing with paint. I will choose to be a bit braver with this one, and take it further … to add and correct light and shadow, and more. Enjoy the image now, because you may never see it again. That's what's awesome about such exercises - I'm committed to the process, where lessons are gleaned, and not to the outcome.
That's what living is.
That's what I made today.
