The annoyed look

I think I’ve felt like this girl looks most of the week. It was a really busy long weekend that just passed and my husband and I took a day off of work as well (visitors) so I’ve felt behind and not on track. You see, fall is my busy time. I plan out the new graphic sets I’ll be working on, I get my stores in order and I seem to have the most illustration inquiries and projects around this time too. I have a long list in my notebook and hardly anything is crossed off! Plus I haven’t had a lot of time for personal art either. This folded arm art was finished last night after I went out for a drink. Maybe that’s why my lines are a bit wobbly, LOL. I haven’t had a chance to post recently but I have been busy making lots of graphic and journal sets. I’m almost ready to release a batch of new stuff! Yay! That always feels good. Next week I hope, when my entire week is my own.

This weekend we’re off to the symphony. Mozart and Dvořák. WOO! Looking forward to this one. I used to have subscription tickets and don’t anymore so it’s been a sad while for the symphony and me. But I did spy on the calendar that my local symphony is doing Beethoven’s 9th in the spring. Oh JOY! That’s on my list now too. I saw the 9th with the Toronto Symphony a few years back and it was so beautiful. Actually, maybe I will paint Beethoven in my new art journal. Brilliant but grumpy. It’s a good look for composers.

    Wobbly? Not! She is looking just how a lot of us have been feeling lately. Perfect timing and beautifully executed. Happy PPF!.

    oh, I know the feeling of having a long list and hardly anything crossed off … The expression on your girl says it all 🙂 Amazing that you can create something like this after a night out!

    Lovely, lovely even while annoyed! I used to have symphony subscription too. It’s been years since I’ve attended. the Beethoven one sounds great, as do any of the old masters’ works.

    WOW! What a fabulous piece. Your work is so good. I know all about that ‘not enough time’ feeling. I hate it, but I try to get on as much as I can. Not always easy.

    Lovely annoyed look – it’s one I’ve been wearing recently too, given the state of the world as seen on so many of the social media platforms. I’m most grateful that you’ve put it where I can see it – thank you! 😉
