It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (December 16): 12/16/19
Last week was a good one. We had nearly a week of rain. I had time to work on art but also got out and about.
But the really exciting news is that I've been commissioned to do a sandhill crane painting which is due at the end of January. So I've been doing some test sketches with my Copics.

I am loving the egret painting. I'm impressed.
I am so sorry your family got the flu bug. It has been swirling around church and office here. I keep trying to get my sleep to avoid getting sick.
You have more good reading going on.

The flu went by pretty quick; we'd all had our shots in October. I have two new bird paintings going now.

Your dinner out looks delightful. I remember living near Pacifica, back in the day. Great art!
Enjoy your week.

We lived in Pacifica from 2001 to 2004. We still like to go there from time to time.

The week is off to a good start. Thanks.

How exciting! A commission. Will painting eventually replace reading in your life? Painting seems to give you such happiness.
I'm taking along a small sketchbook and a box of paints to Paris when I go at the end of January. My plan is to paint something each day.
Love the variety of your reading. All-American Muslim Girl sounds so interesting.
Have a great week, Sarah.

I've been painting since I was ten. I've been tracking my reading since I was fourteen. I can't imagine giving one up for the other.
Have fun in Paris. I've never been.
