The one thing this World Cup has managed to do is reinstating my love for the colors of my home country. There's just something about how lovely the blues, greens and yellows all mix together to form a piece of art that is both soothing and pleasing to the eye. During a random bout of inspiration, I took out my colored pencils and quickly drew a 20 minute sketch using greens, blues and yellows to fill in the darks and the lights. It's far from perfect, especially when my goal wasn't to finish anything (and yes it's on lined paper), but I'm excited that my artists block is slowly chipping away.
I do have a bit of good news though, I'm moving to New Zealand in two and a half weeks so I'll have more time to indulge in my crafts and my artwork when everything is settled. Moving from Connecticut to the opposite side of the world is forcing me to downsize, so I'm only bringing the essentials such as my cross stitching supplies and my colored pencils. Everything else is staying at my folk's place until I have the money to ship everything over the Pacific Ocean. That... might take a while given the conditions of my visa.
Hopefully I'll have something fun and artsy to post next week, in the meantime, I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. Happy Father's Day!
