We are rushing headlong into a new week, although I’m not sure where the last week went. I know it was here, but then I blinked, and it was gone! New week means time to share with Cee, although I suspect these questions will prompt some “it depends” or “I don’t know” answers from me.
When writing by hand do you prefer to use a pencil or pen? Pen, always. A pen just seems to write more smoothly for me, although that’s no guarantee my writing will be any more legible. Truth is, I prefer typing. Although sometimes my mind goes faster than my fingers, I seem to be able to get the words that I want on paper more readily when I’m typing.
Would you rather be an amazing dancer or an amazing singer? If I’m going to be amazing at something, I think I would prefer it be something where I could remain more in the background most of the time. Perhaps an amazing artist, or an amazing writer – either of those would be fine. Neither singing nor dancing are in my range of talents/skills for sure – I am not known for being musical or graceful.
If you were on a debate team, what subject would you relish debating? My tongue tends to tangle and my brain to empty when I need them to function well – which means I don’t think a debate team would be in my bailiwick either. Remember how I said I’d prefer to be in the background most of the time? Uh huh. Applies here too.
What are you a “natural” at doing? Procrastination when it comes to things I don’t want to do? Probably that’s what I’m most natural about. If it’s something I do want to do, it will be organized well in advance.
Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I am grateful for time to play with my inks, the company of my furry girls, nearby friends and dinner with them on a recent evening, communications with my kids. I am looking forward to the weather going back to more spring weather after some wintry winds and clouds that dropped snowflakes on us this past week.
My inking the last few days has taken on a more realistic bent – although I would love to be able to be more impressionistic and free in creating my art, I seem to always come back to the realistic thing. Yesterday’s efforts produced “Time for Breakfast”:
The end of last week I took an online class given by Helene Rush on SherylWilliamsArt.com about painting an ostrich. When I told my daughter that, she laughed, having had a mental image of me painting a real ostrich. So, to be more specific, the class was about painting a portrait of an ostrich, and this is the result:
Wishing you all a wonderful week!
