Ok, that took six weeks. One thing I appear to be very diligent about is acquiring new objects to lose, unused, somewhere in the clutter. I finally got a nice new glass cutter with 6 wheels. I just have to get it over to the framing studio, but now I can’t seem to find it. There are a great many sheets of glass that I could use to fill odd-sized frames I have there. I plan to drop by to look for my very small Cotman traveler watercolor box to take on our trip to Iowa- I have a beautiful valise filled with stuff for watercolor class, but neither of my paintboxes is in there. There are other options if I can’t track them down.
Last week at a bookstore in Santa Cruz (right by the Saw Festival jam) I bought a book on hand lettering, so I am putting together a set of pens and stuff to use in my daily journal– hoping I can sit still long enough to do some drawing. I seem to always have enough time to write almost every day, but even then there are long stretches without entries. I got a subscription to the S.F. Chron, thinking I could emulate a friend who copies a photo from the newspaper every morning, but I usually can’t find a thing i want to draw.
