This morning Sunshine and I went out for a lovely walk to Ashton Court. On the way we visited the carwash ('cause the car REALLY needed a wash!). After Thursday's drawing on location stint, I was determined to get into the habit of drawing whenever I was out so I took my new handbound sketchbook with me. Can't say these are the best drawings I've ever done, but I know I need to do this to break through the fear of drawing in public without a care whether the drawing is 'good' or not ... its all about the practise, practise practise ... On the right is Sunshine looking out the car window while we were in the carwash. I must say, it was no where NEAR as exciting as I remembered as a child (the whole car shaking to the thudthudthudthud of the spinning washy-things!). Infact, the car hardly shook at all, and I can't say the machine did the best job of cleaning - I think we may have to do a bit more scrubbing with a bucket and sponge tomorrow ...
Still, it was a lovely day out in the gorgeous sunshine, walking through the park, looking at the deer and the trees (and contemplating a possible wedding venue?). What a lovely day to start my birthday month! Oh yes, its been such an incredible year this last 12 months, and I'm so SO happy to be where I am, doing what I'm doing, that I intend to be excitable all of this month (hah! like I'm not always quite excitable!)... ;)
And what better way to start the month than to be mentioned on not one, but TWO other blogs ...
The lovely Suzanne over at 'An open [sketch]book' also teaches at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, Department of Interior Architecture. They have set up blogs for the students (which I think is SUCH the fab idea) and Suzanne featured me on their blog as someone to go and have a look at. What a compliment!
Then, yesterday, my foundation final major project stuff was featured on Easternblot (only biochemists will get the joke), a blog celebrating the art of science. Thank you Eva!
I LOVE March :)
