How My Week Has Been: #1
2. Subconscious paint-dabbing leads to unintentional abstract art, or something. I like to dab the excess paint off my paintbrush and onto a piece of scrap paper whenever I'm painting. It helps keeps those unexpected blobs of paint to a minimum. and I always end up loving the way the "excess paint" pages look in the end. I try to save all of them. I feel like they are the most honest paintings I've ever made, because they aren't made for anyone at all. They aren't even really paintings. I dab the paint wherever I want, and do whatever feels right, without caring how it looks or how it will be perceived by others in the end, because in the end, it'll get thrown in the trash. Or so I think. But I end up keeping them for myself, haha.
3. Days are getting longer. I drive by this sign every day, and they just changed the message to "Days are getting longer!" and it makes me so happy because it's true. The winter is really hard for me. (Seasonal affective disorder and what not.) So when I see this sign on my way home it makes me beam. I love it.
4. Coffee and reading in my car. I spend my mornings before work in my car, drinking REALLY STRONG COFFEE and reading Game of Thrones. I'm such a slow reader, but I'm almost done with the first book! That's like, huge for me. Franklin's already halfway through the second book. I just can't seem to catch up. Maybe I should hide his book somewhere, so he can't read it for a while, bwahaha.
PS: I'm going to try to do one of these posts every week, to keep myself on track, so I don't go weeks without blogging, like I have in the past. Getting off track is the worst :/
