Today I had a UPS delivery. My new Derwent Drawing Pencils. They came with a canvas rollup holder. I ordered them on ebay and can't wait to try them out. I have also ordered some Derwent Inktense pencils, and some inkpens. I have seen some really good artwork in the WC forums by Gibson99 using the inkpens. He has really gotten good with them. I will probably never get as good with them as he is but look forward to trying them. Then there are the graphitints I have had over a month now without trying. I need to take one day and use it for trial and error time with all the new pencils.
I watched part of the finale of Big Brother Allstars tonight. I have the first part taped. I will catch up with it tomorrow. It was not as exciting as other BB shows have been. I am a reality show junkie. I watch Survivor, Amazing Race, Project Runway, and even watched the show with the chefs that came on after the second Project Runway finished.
I watch a lot of tv. I don't just sit and stare at it. I have it on 24/7. It is like having a radio playing in the background. I have been that way since I was in school. I even did my homework in front of the tv. Of course I would drag it out so I could stay up late watching. But I got good grades so it didn't harm me.
I probably do more listening than watching. My husband jokes and tells everyone that I have a tv on in every room (which is sometimes true). He doesn't understand that I can then hear what is happening even while I go from room to room doing housework. It's funny but I can't stand having music from a radio playing while I work. Even on the computer, I don't like it when a site has music. I used to keep my speakers off. Now they are down really low.
Bible study tonight was really good. Nice to be with like-minded women and study. It would be nice to have a group I could share my art with. When I used to take an oil painting class, I really enjoyed the comraderie. I could have painted at home, but tended to put it off. But once you pay for the class, you are going to show up and paint. I would like to have someone to get together to do artwork.
I have a friend who has a group she gets together with and quilts. They each take their sewing machines and meet at someones house to sew. But since I quit the art classes years ago, I have lost touch with that world. I don' t have any friends who are artists. And it is hard to get someone to commit to a night a week or whatever since so many are busy with sports, kids, school, etc.
Oh well. My hubby got a camp trailer and eventually he is going to want me to go with him camping. I don't like to camp. Too many bad experiences. But If I do go with him, I will have an opportunity to take photos, and draw. My backyard and house are fast becoming boring subjects for me.
