At the BBQ, I found out a friend's preteen daughter loves Elvis. She wants a drawing of him to hang in her bedroom. So I started this that Sat night after we got home. I haven't touched it since. I need to work on it some more but still haven't any art energy.
I am going with the art group on Wednesday. We are going back to Bolles Nursery. This will be our third trip there. The owner likes us to come and puts out goodies for us. Coffee, water, soda, and donuts. Such a nice kind man.
Some of us will go to the Mexican Restaurant just down the block for lunch. They have really good fish tacos. For many years, the thought of fish in a taco sounded awful. I don't even like fish. Go figure. I finally tried one and liked it. At least at this place I like them. I had one at another place and it was terrible. Really fishy. I prefer the breaded ones to the bare ones. Thankfully they are small and come with just a touch of some kind of slaw. I will pass on the beans and rice this time.
Even when I am in an art slump, I am usually able to do something during our outings. The first time there I did a statue of a young man and woman. The last time I did a cactus. I hope something catches my attention this time. It will have to be in the shade. The weatherman said we may be in for a few days of triple digits already. I guess summer is here.
