This evening, I made a tiny short film about the snow since there is a snowstorm going on in Chicago right now. Note: I always pretend that I don’t like the snow because it’s dirty and cold, but I actually think it’s pretty.
I’m not that big into cars, but for whatever reason, I think vintage Fiats are absolutely adorable in a Wallace and Gromit kind of way. They’re dorky and silly, but also totally amazing! Yay for Fiats!
Tonight, I spent some time using watercolors to paint in a big doodle of water droplets, while also getting myself reacquainted with how watercolors behave and how these behaviors can be utilized. I used to use watercolor a lot, but it’s been a while, so this ended up being a really helpful exercise.
As a side note, it has been incredibly dry in my apartment so I bought a humidifier yesterday and used it last night for the first time. And I feel amazing today! No sore throat, no sneezes, no congestion!
Halfway through painting these water droplets, I started to wonder if I subconsciously decided to make these water droplets because I love my humidifier so much. I guess I’ll never know…
More photos. These are from our day cross country skiing and hiking in the Southern Unit of the Kettle Moraine State Forest in Wisconsin. We had great weather and enjoyed spending time and being active outdoors. A lovely day!
Today, I went to Costco with some friends (and bought large quantities of things like toilet paper and wine) and then drove around with them and my boyfriend to find “for rent” signs. They’re hoping to move to my neighborhood. Yay!
Today, I played with the ol’ spirograph. It’s the exact toy I used as a kid, actually, and my mom has had it tucked away all these years. When I asked her about it, she was all “Of course I still have your spirograph!”
Anyways, I made a few perfect doodles with the thing, but I found the mistakes pretty interesting, especially the first one. It was made with the impossible-to-use football gear. One day I will figure that thing out.
