It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (May 27): 05/27/19
I finished Mini Nature 5 last week. It's a ladybug on some pickle weed, a plant which grows along the San Francisco Bay shoreline. I haven't stared Mini Nature 6 yet because I'm focusing making some sample pieces for the summer camp I'm teaching in July.
Below are two pieces. The one on the left is an owl done with yarn and glue. On the right is the start of a dinosaur stained glass done with tissue paper. I will post the finished version next week.
This being a three day weekend, I"m taking a little time off from planning camp to goof around. My biggest distraction is the Switch my husband got for me. I have been spending blissful hours playing Stardew Valley on it. I do plan to get other games but for now, it's my one game.
What I read:
You'll see a couple more picture books in there. Those were holdovers from the month when I was reading for ideas for camp. I also finished an audio book I started back in February. Five of my seven adult books were published this year. Don't ask me which one was my favorite as all the new ones were page turners.

>I like the look of Superlative Birds and Weird Birds. Merci Suarez was a wonderful read, I thought. Meg Medina is one of my favorite authors now.
Good luck with your projects. I hope you enjoy your time off today.

Of the two bird books, I found Weird Birds the more engaging. It was a nice three day weekend, although I didn't get as much art done as I would have liked.

I enjoyed Trouble on the Books. I hope there is a sequel.

This post is a really good argument for why book designers are so important. I just added several books to my TBR because the cover drew me in so readily (and then when I looked them up, the description sounded good as well). Superlative Birds, We Cast a Shadow, Woman 99 and One Lie Too Many.
Your art is both fun and inspiring as well!

Hmm pickle weed, what an interesting name. I have seen Woman 99 around the blogosphere, hope you are enjoying it.
Comment #20: Tuesday, May 28, 2019 at 22:10:00
The plant really is pickle colored and the individual nodules are like mini pickles. It's an apt name. I will get Woman 99 reviewed soon.
