I completed another mermaid drawing while relaxing in the evenings... These little drawings really have been helping me from going completely insane. It is so relaxing to scribble a little here and there. Keeping my connection to art is absolutely necessary for my sanity. It's my life's blood!
Crazy things just keep on happening here. We had freak hail and tornado like winds yesterday - the worst we've had so far, and I lost a bit of my roof. Pieces of it were in my front yard and in the street. Hopefully they are coming to fix it this afternoon. We lost power during the onslaught and it was so dark out that there was nothing I could do but cuddle up by my little fireplace and wait out the storm. My kitty and puppy dog were so scared - I just tried to comfort them. It was over in a few hours. Another storm is coming in overnight and I'm hoping the roof holds.
I got a nice photo of my cherry plum tree blossoms before the wind hit... It was sunny and I was on the way to the store when the storm came in like a roaring demon. Very bazaar!
I've got to go now and drive into Roseburg to do some banking and check on my parents. My Dad is doing better and we are hopeful for more time with him! When I get back I will do a little more on my Mermaid Princess. Yay! I'm in zee mood for art! Heck, I'm always in the mood for art!!!
As I work on her today, I will remember those in Japan who so need love and support through this horrific tragedy that has befallen them. It's a little strange that I am working on my mermaid while remembering the tsunami's destruction. Maybe I can think of her bringing soothing peace to the ocean and to those who are so devastated...
Until next time, keep the pencil and brush moving!
Forever in art, Jessica
