I've finally started a sketchbook, a very tiny sketchbook, after deciding to take advice given to a friend who is too busy (literally) to make art. The advice is to make VERY SMALL ART. This sketchbook is 3.25x5.5 inches, stone paper/terraskin (more on that later). Me, I have the time, but not the concentration because I am DOG OBSESSED.
Thinking up dog names, asking about dog names, reading dog forums, watching dog training videos on youtube, gathering leashes, & equipment, even finding an excuse to purchase a brand new bait bag (my old one is just a tad frumpy).
Yep, there he is again. He's a border collie mix (looks like a border collie with half-cocked ears and one blue eye, and he's already poking his nose everywhere. I really really hope it all works out. Funny how revealing some of semi-abstract sketches can be.
And here he is, or 'there' he is, still in the Dominican Republic. Five more sleeps.
& Winter did finally arrive in Ontario Canada, first cross-country ski excursion on January 1st.
And, erm, Simba's toy obsessed. I made a toy of feathers, duct tape, fishing line and a stick, and now he does nothing but sit and stare at me waiting for me to play (I made the mistake of hiding it under my pillow--once).
So there it is, notes from the sketchbook. Art and life.
