Well A Good Book Works Too!

So we have this beautiful day here of weather.  I love it when it's in the upper 70s lower 80s.  A nice gentle breeze.  It sparked my creativity!  I had even wedged in some creative time.  Finally.  And a good thing too, as I am taking an online course called "Texture Town" taught by two very talented artists, Chris Cozens and Julie Pritchard. .

As it always is when I venture into new medias in the art world, I often have to wait for supplies to come.   In my little neck of the world, there are no art supply stores, no Michaels down the street to run to.  I've never seen a Hobby Lobby, and Joan's Fabric is as far as the nearest Walmart.

I shop the internet.  I love the internet. Google is my BFF.

A little time to wait for delivery, but usually not to long . . . .  so after a week of waiting and watching videos . . . enough supplies have arrived . . . I've got my errands after work all caught up . . . I've got T I M E!

So here I am, my supplies gathered around me, I've got my Mojo ready and . . . .

 The nice weather decided to it was bored with the nice gentle breeze and POOF . . . . it sends lots of blowing wind and BOOM.  Out goes the lights.

But hey, the red chair by the window, a good book, a little tea . . . . in the great sunshine we had going on . . . well hey, that works too!

I love spring weather.

Mojo is whispering to me as I sit here on break at work keying this . . . yes MO, I know JO . . . . when I get home tonight . . . yes I can't wait to get into those new paints either!
