My first try at a little fur is now complete. I have to admit that I’ve been a bit distracted by life lately which caused me to take longer on this then usual. Last week someone close to me was killed in a senseless hit and run and my mind has been in a bit of a tailspin trying to find some way to make sense of it all. What little time I did squeeze in between the anger, tears and confusion to work on this actually was good for grounding me but this last week has been an emotional mess for me. I’m feeling better but I’m still trying to come to grips with things.

Haven’t Gouged My Eyes Out…Yet

Progress has been slow on my Peacock but I’m steady going at it. This will definitely take some time but I have other small ACEO projects lined up to keep some variety going. I haven’t gouged my eyes out with my drawing pens yet so I guess that’s a good sign that things are going well. You would think that by now I would have built up a resistance to the feeling of monotony that comes with pointillism work but the truth is, it never really goes away. There’s always some point where you feel like you hate the piece but you work through it as always. You get used to it and accept that it’s just part of the process. 😊
