Another beginner art tip I recently learned from a YouTuber is to stay away from complex drawings where a lot is happing in the image/painting I am trying to recreate. There will be lots of time to get to complexity later.
And also, … I forget. Irrespective of my forgetfulness, this tip means I must be more selective with what I choose to copy.
If you listen to the beginning of that song you should recognize the hip hop sample.
I pushed myself to get back to work today, but I couldn’t do it. Often as soon as I start to feel a bit better, I rush to get back in action. Since I am not going to do that this time, I will have three point five unpaid days – in reflecting, it could have come at a worse time.
If I didn’t do stupid shit like take vacation days here and there, because work was slow and I felt guilty, because at this time I wasn’t taking a work related course – Come to think of it, I can’t remember if I did that last year or this. It doesn’t matter. I would do it again because I felt awful about the whole thing.
I am grateful that I can lose 3.5 days
without stressing over how I am going to pay this and that.
That’s another version of VvG’s Stevedores Arles painting.
Hanyow! I’ve had lots of time this week to reflect on my life and I wrote a poem – I don’t know how long I am going to be here but I know what I’d like the rest of my life to look like. And I know who I want to continue to be.
BTW – Snow died and it made me realize how uncomfortable I am with the dead still. Which makes me uncomfortable. Death is a part of life, why do I automatically feel uneasy? I did help put socks on my mom at the funeral home – she doesn’t like her feet being cold. ❤️❤️❤️
Could you image if everyone knew that we go on after we die and you didn’t need to go to a cemetery to talk to your loved one. (I’m crying but I’m ok!). I feel like one of those people who talk about UFO/UAP and people write them off as crazy/mentally ill or attention seekers. There are lots of phenomena we don’t have explanations for scientifically? And if you cannot prove/disprove it, does that invalidate the experience? Not for me it doesn’t.
