Tools Used:

  • Faber-Castell color pencils
  • Strathmore colored pencil paper

A Rooster Drawing

Today was extremely hot. I started my day off drawing and working. I have been working from home lately. In a few weeks I will no longer be going into the office and I will be starting a new job working from home. This is a really good decision as I’m noticing my artwork has been improving and I am enjoying it.

After I had breakfast I had to get measurements for compression socks. I am having swelling in my legs and have gone to a specialist. In 2 weeks I have testing scheduled to determine what could be going on with my legs. So in the meantime I have to wear compression socks and keep my legs elevated as much as possible.

But today it wasn’t elevating my legs it was keeping my head down and my eyes closed because I had a migraine all day. I was able to make my dinner but I took a nap afterwards. It has stormed but my head still is throbbing so it’s another few hours of resting. I tried drawing throughout the day but did not get as much done as I hoped.

My Dinner

My dinner was gluten free dairy free macaroni salad and a tomato and cucumber and radish salad with lemon dressing. I cooked chicken thighs in a crock pot to go along with a salads.

Happy Day
