We recently took a small road trip to Richmond. Highlights were the Hollywood Costume exhibit (no photos allowed) at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, a delicious lunch at Nacho Mama’s (don’t you just love this name!) on Cary Street, and Ellman’s to stock up on dance supplies. Oh, and there was a wee bit of shopping at World Market and Trader Joe’s. I replenished my dwindling tea stash, even buying some flowering tea which I haven’t had in a while. It was great to fill the creative well and have time with family and a friend I hadn’t seen in years. A big ole soul vitamin.
The rest of the week found me under the weather. When I could, I drew and sketched out painting ideas, playing for the first time with vine charcoal and also working on trying to get better at drawing hands so that I don’t have to put so much effort into avoiding them! I have to say that they are getting a fraction easier with practice-just a bit.
What have you been working on?
