Thanks for popping in. You know how sometimes you are making something, be it a card or a canvas, a doodle or a painting, and it hooks you, to the exclusion of everything else. It draws you in and you are completely oblivious to the world around you. You realise that it’s going to take a lot longer than you’ve got, that you’ve got a million other pressing things to do – but you can’t stop. You have to finish it.
Well, that’s me right now. This afternoon I started prepping ahead for the SHAC-Shack tomorrow morning, so that we could move to the next stage of our houses doodles. I thought I’d pen the houses onto buff paper and designer paper, so that you could decide which direction you wanted to take. Did that quickly and efficiently, with the aid of a lightwave. Then came the colour.
And what can I tell you? 4 hours later, and I’m right in the middle of the houses, colouring, doodling, titivating, spoiling, repairing, rebuilding, adding snow, adding more snow. Regretting I added too much snow….
Here’s where I’m at.
Still got loads to do, but not the hours to play. Bummed. However, mission accomplished. Got loads of tips and tricks to share in the SHAC-Shac tomorrow. And that was actually my objective. So I have to wriggle off the hook and let it go. One day, when I retire (ho ho ho), I shall be able to do art for art’s sake. I look forward to that.
Hey!! I even wove it into a blog, so that I could colour in for an hour longer. Honestly, I could stay up all night and finish this little picture. But tomorrow won’t thank me for it.
I bet you know EXACTLY where I’m at, don’t you.
