These days have been filled with me getting to know my new tools: a new software Photoshop Elements and a new scanner. So much to relearn. Although the new scanner is a lot easier to use than my old one I still need to figure out how to stitch together scanned images of my larger paintings. This marker sketch is small so it fits the scanning area easily. It's the larger pieces that are requiring my researching and relearning how to put the images together.
Went to a mexican birthday party and I got in the mood to sketch out what I imagined her feet looked like after dancing. It was late and an outdoor party. So many were freezing. I'd catch a few looks to see the young women dancing and taking shots of some alcohol. Didn't care to find out what it was they drank. Their display of dancing and shouting caught my attention for a few seconds and this is how I finished the sketch.
"Her Shoe" was completed before we went to the party.
"Her Bare Foot" was completed the next morning.
Ah! I feel great!! I don't miss the hangovers. I don't miss the drinking.
I woke up realizing that it's up to me keep this blog alive. My life has evolved and expanded any many good ways since I first started this blog. I am grateful. So there will be many good changes and glimpses into my life. Like the song..."When there's a smile in your heart there's no better place to start".
