How do I celebrate the end of a busy work week?
Drawing countless amounts of pelvic bones while watching 10 Questions to the Dalai Lama
Find your balance, love.
I know you feel like you’ve lost that center point,
but it’s within you… Within you…
You can steady yourself on another,
but the center point, the place of balance,
the source of strength…
the seed of courage…
the resting place of contentment,
is within You.

If you haven’t already noticed, this blog is both personal and creative (which, in my opinion, should always be intertwined by nature) and if you don’t want to read about a young women’s personal life then I advise you steer clear of these posts or simply, don’t follow me.
And at midnight, still wide awake, I’ve been terribly troubled by a few things and feel the need to get it off my chest. First, is financial. Bills and late fees piling up because I had to buy new tires AND brakes. I’m going to be spending this entire month catching up and hating my bank account. No need to mention it already hates me.
Second, it’s a break up. ‘In a relationship’ for about four years. Living together for 3.5 and…counting. Some days I’m okay, but today something must have triggered. I just snapped. I got angry and upset and felt lonely. We’ve been broken up for about a month, in which it happened so quick and clean I could have sworn it never happened. I thought there was going to be more resistance and pain. But I didn’t start feeling it until the days after. And trust me, I felt it. We are close, but we act like it’s not there, which is an issue I know. Earlier today, we opened up to each other a little, and I thought it would make me feel better….it didn’t. For the rest of the day I’ve had this looming cloud behind me that makes my heart and eyelids heavy. I wish that he could just tell me everything he’s thinking and feeling. But then perhaps it’s not even my business anymore.
This week is going to be crazy. I can’t help but be excited and a little nervous. Longer hours at work, every day this week - que the coffee machine. And while on my down time, I’ll be painting and drawing. My week ends on Sunday at 9pm, let’s hope I’m not dead by then. Or sick of coffee.
This may sound silly, but I have a favorite drawing pencil. I was so good at keeping it near my sketchbook (knowing how often I lose things) and one day it just disappeared. I tore my apartment apart looking for it for weeks. This morning as I’m getting ready to sketch, I started thinking about where it could have been and then I stood up, simply moved the oversized stuffed chair and what do we find? My drawing pencil, safe and sound. Turns out my [ex]boyfriend was sitting on it all these weeks, no wonder why he was always in a bad mood (I kid.)
But what really sounds silly, is that no matter what happens today, it will be a great day because I now have my pencil.
On another note, the picture I posted a few days ago is a quick-ish sketch I was fumbling around with a while back. I was thinking about revisiting that idea, or something similar. Next time I go to the art store I’m going to look at some inks and paper that might be a good fit as the foundation of this awesome sketch. I usually work with canvases and acrylics but I am in love with simple inks drawings and want to do some of my own. If you guys have any suggestions as to long lasting inks and especially a good stiff paper (maybe cardstock?) it would be much appreciated.
