Quote of the Day:

"Your vocation in life is where your greatest joy meets the world's greatest need." --- Frederick Buechner

Art News:

I got diddly and squat done this weekend, which in a way, was nice. I spent some time with roho, and went with takaza and duncandahusky to their shiny new home to do a critical-eyed walkthrough, and measure for paint, drapes and the like. We watched a storm front roll in with alarming speed, with a particular eye for the black trailing clouds. I have never actually -seen- a tornado forming; I've always been huddling in a closet when I knew one was nearby.

... anyway, all of this is an excuse to why I didn't get arts done. (and no. No tornados.) :D

Current Projects:

This morning, laundry. This afternoon, painting, and some sketching. I need to figure out what I'm doing for tonight's dinner, thinking maybe pasta with fresh bread.

I also need to work on some MFF stuff, and check with the school to make sure I'm all set for tuition payments this fall.

Nifty things:

History of Artist's Paint - haikujaguar gave me this link several months ago, and since we don't have identical readerships, I thought I'd repost. It's fascinating if you're at all interested in art or history (or both!).

Abdomination: How to draw beef - INVALUABLE resource detailing how abdominal muscles work with illustrations on how they look under skin. I will be using this any time I need to draw a male from here on out. The artist did a second tutorial that's more general, and just as good.

Have a great day!
