Picked up a couple of VERY inspiring books the other day. The first is Choosing Civility by P.M. Forni and the second is Drawing Lab For Mixed-Media Artists by Carla Sonheim. I bought the first for someone else but can't seem to stop reading it. It's full of great quotes and common sense reminders for life.
"Don't curse the darkness–light a candle." chinese proverb
I'm going to use this proverb in a lot of ways artistically. I have an illustration I did a few years ago that it will fit perfectly next to. And it's going on my wall. (maybe my fb wall too).
The drawing book is full of great ideas to get ya moving with sketches. I tend to not draw every day but need to keep at it. Now I have a lesson plan to make sure I don't laze around with my art.
Etsy goals are to keep adding earrings and in a couple weeks have a big sale for the holidays. Still need that first sale, but I am patient and have only just begun putting the word out there.
AND, the boy got the airplane costume after all. Got the wings started and then I happily shifted responsibility to my husband while I made dinner. A silver airplane just like his great grandpa flew.
