Because I was not feeling ready to rock and roll at the painting table just yet, I spent the next few days working some more with my Prismacolor Coloured Pencils. They are a new (to me) medium and since I haven't played with them since childhood (eons ago O.o) I watched an assortment of YouTube videos to learn the basics. Then I spent some time playing with Strathmore Bristol paper to get a feel for them -- I was ready to put my knowledge to work! I found some images in my collections of freebies and began to colour and blend. Ohhhhhh how completely fun these coloured pencils are!
OH -- I should mention that some time ago I had purchased a lesser quality coloured pencil brand in preparation for this kind of fun ... and couldn't get them to work for anything. Nothing I had seen being done with the Prismacolors could be done with that cheap store brand. Clearly this is one instance where you get what you pay for ... only I was so blessed to have been the recipient of a RAK and had my Prismacolors gifted to me. (((Big hugs to that ONE who does these quiet little acts of kindness to others ... like me!)))
And that brings us to today where I'm really feeling quite well again! And to top it off, we received a text this morning from son, Bryan with dates that he and his family will be coming to spend with all of us in August! This has been a long time in the planning and we just couldn't be more thrilled to see actual dates set and plans being made to make it happen. What a wonderful day ... and my heart is full and happy.
And there ... I'm caught up! I hope life is treating you kindly! God bless!
