Today I seem to be taking an age to "get going" and haven't done any exercise yet even though I have my yoga leggings on. As if by wearing them I've actually done it. I slept very badly last night and couldn't switch my overactive brain off after I woke at 3am. I think I had disturbed myself by reading a letter from a lady in Italy that had been published in the Guardian. I picked up the great sadness in this letter and felt very upset when she said "and you won't know when you'll see your grown up children again." Of course I'd already thought of this with Sam being in London for the foreseeable and I haven't seen him since January. But it could be a lot worse.
If any one is reading this for some inspiration My picture today is of some tree sketches. If you can do some art that's a positive and today I'm suggesting looking out of one of your window and painting something with paint. No drawing first just go for it with the paint. Use a maximum of two colours so that you concentrate on the drawing. The trees here are painted this way and using only paint will give a fresh feeling to your subject. When I've finished writing here I'll go to one of our windows and do the same.
The rest of the day will include some work on the Artist magazine articles, cooking, watering plants, some potting on, a trip to the Post Office (I've only been to one shop in a week), some painting and a Zoom meeting at 7am. I must admit I'm feeling nervous about using Zoom as I'm not very confident with any form of technology. Plus plenty of tea in-between all of this. Oh yes, and not forgetting my exercises!
Wishing you a good day today.
