Saturdaily - life goes on

Guppy is the sweetest kid imaginable. She has been giving me pictures and stories 'to cheer me up for Norway being gone.'

I've been pretty spotty - I'll feel like I'm back to normal and getting things done and feeling productive, then I'll find myself staring at the spot the water dish used to be, or making stupid errors in math and programming or writing really moronic things. Sleep has been wretched.

I'm letting myself grieve this week. Next week is bootstraps time, because end of the month means deadlines. Kindergarten is working out beautifully, and though I haven't taken real advantage of it yet, I am really looking forward to the hours of freedom.

I have been doing artwork. I haven't felt like drawing, but I have felt like playing with color, so I tackled some Christmas lineart with Copics. Yesterday, Layla came over for art time, and she painted and I finished some botanical pieces in color. I plan to have all of the above printed as cards. In the afternoon, Guppy and I painted! I did some mini-totes, and ACEO canvases.


I'm not sure about the painted background. I LIKE the roses with the background, but I think I like them BETTER without it. (I scanned before adding that...)
