It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (January 06): 01/06/20
New Years was fun. My in-laws visited from Monday through Thursday morning. We put together a jigsaw puzzle, a tradition we've had for at least as long as I've been part of the family.
So far I'm sticking with my #art366 plan.
On Sunday I finished the Black-necked Stilt painting. It's an acrylic on an 8x10 canvas.
I also did another two fireworks paintings for the sketchbook which is due in February.
What I read:
To start off the year I read a bunch of short books. Two of them are new releases, World's Worst Parrot, and The Mess That We Made.
What I'm reading:

I like your jigsaw tradition. We haven't done one those in a long while. Your artwork is stunning. You have a gift It sounds like your reading year has gotten off to a good start. I hope you have a great week.

I think my mother-in-law was the one who started the jigsaw tradition. It's the only puzzle I end up putting together all year even though I love doing puzzles.

>What a lovely tradition - working on a jig saw together... Certainly less noisy and fractious than playing loud games:). I love your pictures - the fox in mid-air is a delight. Have a good week, Sarah:)

We also played a round of Clue, but that isn't especially noisy either. The fox was fun to draw.

Sounds like good family time... I like the puzzle tradition! Have a good week :)

It works for us. All six of us put work into the puzzle.

Love the art, and that sandwich looks good enough to eat.
Enjoy your week and your books! Thanks for visiting my blog.
Comment #12: Monday, January 06, 2020 at 16:38:00
Thank you. I'm finding sandwiches fun to draw and paint.

Your art is beautiful. I bet it makes you happy to complete so much artwork.
I've got a little sketchbook I'm taking with me to Paris. I am planning to do a small drawing every day. Pencil only, I think.
I like the look of The Mess We Made. I am going to add it to my Amazon list.
Have a wonderful week, Sarah!

Enjoy your trip. I've never had the pleasure of visiting Paris. I'll be reviewing The Mess We Made on Saturday.

I love the puzzle and the paintings! I don't know how you read so much with everything else you do. Happy New Year!
Comment #16: Monday, January 06, 2020 at 16:43:00
Last week's books were short. That's how I read so many.
Comment #17: Monday, January 06, 2020 at 10:58:21
I love the paintings! And your books look good as well. Happy New Year

Thank you. I'll share more next week.

Saw the cover of Something Borrowed and thought, "That has *got* to be a Doctor Who book."
Have a great week!

In 2013 the BBC commissioned a series of novellas to commemorate the series' 50th anniversary. There is one story per regeneration as of 2013. At the end of the year they offered the lot as a box set with each book having a cover showing that regeneration's iconic outfit. I've read and reviewed doctors one through five and need to now review the sixth one. I still have doctors seven through twelve.

I love the cat on the bookshelf. It's beautiful. Is that the jigsaw puzzle.
Your art is wonderful as always :)
Have a great week and Happy New Year!

Yes, the cat on the bookshelf is the puzzle. Happy New Year!
