acrylic ink on notebook paper
6 x 8 inches
Barbara Muir © 2020Hi everyone,
How are you doing? I hope you are doing well. I seem to be
way busier than I was a couple of weeks ago before this hit.
How can that be true? Well shifting my one evening a week
course over to online, telephone and video has been time
consuming, but I think we've got it.
So I hope you are remaining happy. It was a beautiful day
today -- too beautiful I guess because everyone got out
in the streets for a little while, being careful, social distancing,
but there must have been way too many people in the parks in Toronto,
and for now they are closed. Not fun.
I've been speaking to people all over the world in the past few days
and our stories are very similar. So get a good book, grab a
cup of tea, and settle in. Stay safe, and stay sane and happy.
Quick and dirty? This little sketch for you tonight. Not all
that quick, and not dirty at all. Come on. So many surfaces,
so much rubbing alcohol. So much obsessive hand washing.
And all to the good. I did this with an acrylic pen that I
revived by soaking it in water. It works erratically, and
unpredictably -- so when I want a fine line, it goes heavy,
once in awhile it lets go with too much ink, and then suddenly
I can't get a line at all with it. This seems perfect for right now.
All of life is either too much -- or shortage, going well,
or completely stopped. Stay healthy please.
Have a happy day.
