Mountains and Molehills
I've had one of THOSE weekends!
You know the sort; energy levels are low but your brain is going manic. Mentally you clean the house, wash the laundry and moan about all your chores and physically they all sit undone, unkempt. Desperate to sketch but can't decide what! Every subject seems like a mountain waiting to be climbed, uninteresting, mundane or just too far to go and fetch because your legs have gone on strike and started a deep relationship with the quilt that covers your frozen toes. Oh the heating is on, it's cosy and everyone who enters informs you so but you haven't moved in so long you hadn't noticed yourself. Idle
So I plumped up my cushions and broke the mountain down into little, manageable pieces. I made grids. Molehills! Small boxes I could tackle throughout the day with any subject that came my way and when they didn't come...I made them up!
