I spent the day painting and learning. We were
having a working day, and in my breaks I
watched a video on painting techniques from
Artists Network. Connecting with Alyson
Stanfield's Art Biz Blog Twitter Tweekly for
January 12 set me off on some fun paths. I
learned about key ways to use a Facebook cover
page from the Social Media Examiner and learned
how to do a FaceBook cover page design change
at Canva. It was a wonderful, full, idea-packed day.
My favorite kind of day.
On another note one strange tip from the loop
was to use cocoa powder as face bronzer. Tried
it and went out walking the dog looking wonderfully
tanned. (Proviso -- cocoa is chocolate, and great as
it may look on your face as a bronzer, it stains clothing
-- so wear a towel around your neck when/if you are
applying cocoa, and don't get it on clothes. Dark
clothing is advisable.)
This little portrait is still a work in progress,
but it is coming along. All in all a great
Sunday, a perfect end of the week.
Have a-noticing-your-best-times day.
