It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (October 14): 10/14/19
I'm continuing with Inktober. Below are some of the ones I created last week.
I made progress on my second fireworks painting. This one is an abstract and is called "City Lights."
I recently bought a bunch of small canvases of difference sizes and shapes. My plan is to paint some smaller, affordable pieces, and restart my Etsy shop. I'm taking some inspiration from my Inktober drawings.
Meanwhile, my daughter's Halloween costume is nearly complete. She's been working on detangling her wig. This coming weekend she plans to style it.

Great paintings! Enjoy your books and your week.
Comment #2: Tuesday, October 15, 2019 at 21:05:00
Thank you. I'll do my best.
Comment #3: Monday, October 14, 2019 at 02:03:54
Love the paint brushes painting. Okay Witch looks like a load of fun.
Comment #4: Tuesday, October 15, 2019 at 21:06:00
It's an ink drawing. But I might turn it into a painting later. I'll be reviewing The Okay Witch on Thursday.

Your artwork is progressing nicely. I especially like the paintbrushes.
What did you think of The Storm Runner? I haven't read any of the books under the wing of Rick Riordan, but this one sounds like something that I would like. Have a great week.

Thank you. I might turn the paintbrushes drawing into a painting.
Storm Runner reads like a blend of 24 Hours in Nowhere by Dusti Bowling (2018) and Gods of Jade and Shadow by Silvia Moreno-Garcia (2019), except that it follows the formula of The Lightning Thief (2001). For the most part I liked the book and I will certainly read the sequel, but I thought it had some pacing issues in the middle.

I love your fern painting!
So many books here look good, especially Spell and Spindle and The House in Poplar Wood. Have a great week and continue creating! I love to see your work.
Comment #8: Tuesday, October 15, 2019 at 21:19:00
Thanks. Right now it's just a quick sketch using markers. I might do a painting of it in the near future.
Comment #9: Monday, October 14, 2019 at 09:38:05
Lots of good reading ahead... I'll be curious to hear what you think of The Testaments. The photo of the wig in the tub made me smile:)
Comment #10: Tuesday, October 15, 2019 at 21:22:00
I probably won't start The Testaments until this weekend. We've nicknamed the wig "Violet Everbucket."
Comment #11: Monday, October, 14, 2019 at 09:43:53
Beautiful artwork! And that’s quite a list of books! Enjoy!
Comment #12: Tuesday, October 15, 2019 at 21:24:00
Thank you. I hope I do!
Comment #13: Monday, October 14, 2019 at 13:12:13
Nice variety of books. I liked The Storm Runner and hope you did too. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
Comment #14: Tuesday, October 15, 2019 at 21:28:00
I liked The Storm Runner but I thought it had some pacing issues in the middle.
Comment #15: Tuesday, October 15, 2019 at 06:40:28
Wow! Lots of great books this week. Glad you are enjoying painting — not a skill I have!
Comment #16: Tuesday, October 15, 2019 at 21:30:00
Thanks. Painting and drawing takes passion and practice like any other skill.
Comment #17: Tuesday, October 15, 2019 at 13:25:13
I love the artwork! Hope you enjoy your books this week.
Comment #18: Tuesday, October 15, 2019 at 21:32:00
Thank you. So far it's turning out to be a good week for reading.
Comment #19: Tuesday, October 15, 2019 at 14:59:24
What did you think of the Harley Quinn book? I like Mariko Tamiko as a writer, but I'm always a little skeptical about novels written about superheroes. That said, I think Quinn would have a very interesting story!
Comment #20: Tuesday, October 15, 2019 at 21:33:00
I just posted my review. The short version is that I have been enjoying DC's YA graphic novels written by YA authors. For Harley Quinn, I had a couple minor concerns but overall still enjoyed it.
Comment #21: Tuesday, October 15, 2019 at 16:00:19
I like your artwork, especially the fern one.
I still kind of want to get to The Testaments.
Comment #22: Tuesday, October 15, 2019 at 21:36:00
Thank you. I'm hoping to turn it into a painting. I'll be reading The Testaments at the end of the week or possibly over the weekend.
Comment #23: Tuesday, October 15, 2019 at 21:34:22
A painting a day is impressive. I really like the City Lights WIP. Lots of fun looking books.
I'll be curious about your thoughts on The Testaments.
Comment #24: Tuesday, October 15, 2019 at 21:38:00
It's an ink drawing a day, although I am turning some of my favorite drawings into paintings. Painting takes longer, even for a small canvas. I'm planning on reviewing The Testaments on October 29.
