"Everyone has the same look. We're all 'get this over with' and tired and 'done' and burned out with all this virus stuff," was what Andy yelled at me when I asked him the 1000th time if I was normal with how I feel.
Good to know, Andy. I needed that.
So...maybe YOU are one of those "taking advantage" of being home?
Maybe YOU are someone who needs help to entertain some kiddos?
I've been collecting stuff for you, posted by others.
Cathy Johnson is a superstar sketching artist. She has a seriously FUN website. She's an inspiration to me. I often thumb through her book that I bought years ago about Pocket Sketching. She has videos, gives workshops, and blogs. Her style is light, textured, and bright. She posts a few things you can try, FREE, during this time.
The following are links to Cathy's blog posts. She really has some great links in each, so please click over there! These are listed "in order" of how she posted the lessons. She's a seriously hard working lady artist and I know you'll enjoy all of these, with or without your children.

I have many reasons why I'm grateful to be part of Generation X, one of them being posters.
I had access to posters for my bedroom, pre-printed, ready to roll up and stick on my doors or walls. Between the department stores and the mall kitzy stores, posters were everywhere. There were posters from magazines, from records (oh those 33s!), really big posters from the stores.
Current generations of kids have to print or make their posters.
Hmm...it would be cool if you bought original paintings for the next generations to put up in their rooms. LOL Almost joke - but there seems to be more access to original artwork than pin ups now.
