I have been sick with the cold that wont quit since Super Bowl weekend. Yep, the entire month of February so far. It started as a head cold and transformed into other things over the past few weeks. Obviously being sick for so long sucks all the creative energy out of you. And being a Mom of a 5 year old and 3 year old, any energy I did have pretty much went to them.
I didn't abandon all creative efforts though. I mostly dabbled in my sketchbooks. This helped feed my creativity without adding much pressure or guilt. I figured since the cold kept morphing into other things my body needed rest so, I grabbed that when I could. Sometimes you just have to listen to what your body is telling you. Here are some samples from my sketchbooks. Just fun pieces that may or may not end up in a painting someday.
I have been working on something "big". If I continue to improve and this cold finally subsides I will have it done in the next week or so. I can't wait to show it to you!
