Today has been busy with talking on the phone and the PC with family and friends. Oregon's Govn shut down our state today. We have so many tourist cram packed on our beaches that you would think there is no virus. I live 2 miles from Florence beach and just a few blocks from the Siuslaw River which is our Old Town and tourist mecca. I hope Govn Brown puts National Guard at the beaches to keep people out. Here is just one of the beaches yesterday. REALLY?
One of my dearest friends has a DIL that is the only EMT in a small town in OR. She has been sick for 3 days. She was tested today and now has to wait 4 days for the results. I am so hoping it is not Covid. Strange and scary times we live in.
However, I am trying to keep busy, and stay calm. I painted today and started a drawing with long hair. I am taking my time on the hair and tying to get it right. Hair, draw it in layers, erase, then add more layers and darken shadows.
Here it is so far. It's coming along.
Here is the painting. There will be some trees added and some touch up.
Finally, I wanted some candy today. I don't normally eat candy and so there is none in the house not even stashed somewhere. LOL 2 things. I did not want to drive over to the $ store to get candy and on Sunday when I went grocery shopping the only, and last 4 bags of, sugar on the shelves were the 10lb bags. OMG! that will last me two years. Sooooooo since I have the sugar I made my own hard candy. Very easy and hits the spot. Oh I used green food coloring and my flavor is almond. Probably should break these into smaller pieces. LOL
Honor and integrity in art, in life.
