I do have a doodle that I created with the new Aquatense pencils, but I don't have my camera with me right now, so you will have to wait until next time....hope you can wait!
I had a very good day on Wednesday, then I took a drastic turn for the worst. My migraines were out of control. I've tried very had to keep up with creating something every day, but I must say, on Thursday (or was it Friday?, days have been running together), I couldn't stand the light enough to get out of the dark. Since then my doctors have been working with my medication, trying to get my cerebrospinal fluid pressure level. It has been a struggle...but we're working on it.
My wedding anniversary was on Saturday. We had reservations at a nice seafood restaurant in town, but instead we had a bed picnic. Stuart went to PF Chang's and picked up dinner for us (so glad they have a gluten free menu!) I may not have felt great all day, but it was very nice to just spend down time with my beloved. (I even wrote him a love letter, complete with pretty little doodles along the edges.)
I was surprised by my gift. A Bamboo Pen and Touch tablet. This is a wonderful drawing tablet that I can hook up to my computer, it comes with different programs, and I can use it with Photoshop. I'm having a ball playing with it, but I it will never replace my physical art supplies. I love the tactile feelings, the smell, simply the sensation.
Here are some things I've been doing as I learn how to use the tablet. I'm having a ball.
|This part of the program taught me how to manipulate a photo.|
As you can see, now Mona Lisa is really an alien, and the real reason she's smiling is because she was given flowers and pearls.
|This is my first "drawing" on the pad. I'm using a program I've never tried before, and have a lot to learn. I kind of like this lady. With her hair blowing in the wind, and her eyes are so vivid...interesting.|
|This is a floral design I did. It's a very interesting program. Looks like it continued to draw off the page...humm.|
|This is my favorite design that I've made so far. I love trees. I think this is just cool!|
