Flying Girl Brings A Cupcake For You, or Treat
10/2o/08 The Big Draw #20
Golden Acrylic and Faber Castell Pitt Artist Pens.
I've been exposed! I cheated. Well, I didn't really, but I thought I was. Yesterday's Stripey Flying Girl was not actually #18. Her cupcake brother was #18, and I drew her in the morning before I posted, which makes her #19. Why did I call her 18? I don't know.
I didn't do any painting last night, either. After getting home from my mom's house and the grocery store, where Ivy got sick and threw up in the cart, I didn't feel like painting and went to bed early. No drawing last night, so this morning, over my rebellion against FG, I painted... well, drew. Well, both. Painted the background, drew in the FG and painted in the white stripes.
I was planning to call her my TBD entry, but there's no need, or it doesn't matter. Goodness, I'm drawing! I'm drawing! And painting! It's all good.
But I was still taken with Stripey, although I didn't like her hair, so I thought I'd try her again. Without the conceptualizing and using less painting and more drawing, it went really fast and I finished only a little bit after the kids went to sleep. During Charlie Rose on PBS. I think it's funny that my creativity is fed by television.
Just like my early bedtime last night, FG wants you all to take care of yourself and give back to yourself. Eat right, (or don't eat so right, if you do too much of that...mmmm cupcakes) take a bath, go for a walk, have a yard saleing adventure or a night out. Whatever it is that feeds you, FG brings it to you, so that you can be rejuvenated and get back to the business of creativity. Feed the body, feed the soul, feed the creativity.
And don't forget to wear stripes.... I mean breathe.
Hey! I'm actually wearing stripes today. Total accident, I swear.
