Dear Chicago House,
It has been a crazy month for all sorts of reasons too boring to go into here but there is nothing like a bit of creative indulgence to help me unwind.
I was searching online a few days ago looking for a picture of an octopus… I had a sudden desire to draw one (yes I know I am weird but my days have been filled with tricky coding and I wanted to soothe my mind with something visual). I never did find an octopus I liked but instead found an interesting approach to creating some abstract art. (details here)
So I plonked myself down in the sun room with my sketch book and a box of Inktense pencils and enjoyed a delicious hour of creativity.
As you can see I I am not quite finished yet and I don’t think I will be in time for Arty Farty Friday.
Chicago teenager joined me in the sunroom, but her form of relaxation is a little different from mine. Oh to be that supple!
What you been up to lately?

Oh wow! Make that two wow's. One for your amazing art project … and one for Chicago teen's flexibility and grace!
Hope all is well with you on the gloomy Saturday. Feels more like March than April around here in Chi-land …
All well here and hope it is the same with you.
