Tomorrow is my birthday. I usually write a funny poem about my birthday. I haven't been writing any poetry lately so we'll see what develops.
I worked off and on most of the day drawing my husband's diesel truck that he drives. It is for the WC class being taught by Armin. I will be doing a portrait of my husband as he is now. Tired, worn out, in ill health, and dreading each day he has to climb in the truck.
When he was young and chose his career, he was so happy and excited to become a truck driver. His dad, grandfather and brother were truck drivers as were my dad and brother. His dad didn't want him to drive. He knew what it could do to your body riding in that truck so much and working long hours. What he once loved to do and fought to be able to do it, he now hates and wishes he had chosen another path.
Above is the drawing I did of the truck. I still have to transfer it to the good paper with his portrait and then the work begins.
Yesterday I also participated in a photography project "A Day In My Life...May 19, 2007. I was home all day but managed to get 16 photos of things I didn't do and things I did do. It was fun.
Tomorrow I will go to Costco and get two new tires put on my car. If I am going to be taking my car on these plein air outings, I need to replace them. Then all 4 tires will be new.
