The first sunrise of 2013
While he coughed, sniffled and sneezed, I retreated from the germs and took refuge in my art room. I wrote and sketched in my 2013 art journal and worked on a graphic art piece that I started a couple of weeks ago. The piece is still a work in progress and I'm learning as I go but what fun it is!
Still in progress, I have yet to name the piece. I need to work on the background, the forest plants and add some details, like a butterfly or two. :-).
While I did art, Sami lounged in her new bed, soaking up the warm sunlight beaming through the window:
It's a lazy day at Casa George
One of the goals I've given myself for 2013 is to process one image from my archives everyday. I'm so far behind on processing pictures...four years worth sit in files on my laptop! Being a photographer means that I'll never catch up. I've accepted that but I can at least keep up with the images I take in 2013 and revisit one image from the archives each day. By the end of the year I'll have 365 images done! That seems doable. So here is the first one, taken in 2010:
This year, Lita and I are recording all our bird sightings each day on eBird. My count today:
3 Painted Buntings (2 male, one female)1 Palm Warbler
3 White-winged Doves
2 Mourning Doves
7 Muscovy Ducks
1 Northern Mockingbird
That's it! Day one of 2013 is done. A sore throat has come upon me as I write this (glares at sick hubby). Hopefully my creative train won't be sidetracked by an illness. Fingers crossed, knocking on fake wood.
Oh...and, pat on the back...I blogged two days in a row!
