I feel better than I have in ages, I think the medication has really sorted me out, crossed fingers. I have started my new job role and my body definitely feels it. Lifting and lugging babies is great exercise, my muscles are testifying to this after only 2 days! Just goes to show how old and out of shape I am. Tonight, tired though I was, I decided enough was enough, it was time to play. My studio has been taken over by my sister and her niece, but undeterred I went down and retrieved my neocolor soluble crayons and some reservoir brushes and took them up to my bedroom where I had fun experimenting and messing around. It felt good! I was just using my sketchbook which doesn't hold up to wet media very well, but I wasn't really concerned about the buckling and the finished product, I was more focused on playing and exploring with no real goal in mind. Admittedly, these past few nights have seen my bedroom brightly lit by a full moon and I was wondering how I could capture the beauty with my meagre abilities. I keep reminding myself that I am a beginner, I have a long journey ahead of me and as long as I get some enjoyment, self satisfaction, and stress relief from my little creations, then life is good.

Oh, and here is a little sketch of a heart shaped girl - I think she looks a bit alien-like, so I've called her alien girl, hehe.
