What a great week- the weather has been unbelievable and I have been so grateful that I have not had to get up and go to work. I still need to pinch my self that this is my life. I read a book by Cheryl Strayer called Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Coast Trail while I waiting for “The Snail Book” to come in. It was a fun read about how Cheryl hiked through her troubles. I also started and finished The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating by Elisabeth Tova Bailey. This was a quick read and starts out really strong as the author is given a gift of a violet and a woodland snail. She was really sick with a Lyme like disease that was exacerbated by medicines. She spent hours and days watching the snail and when she finally got well enough she did some snail research and wrote this book. I think that there are a few chapters that needed a better edit but the book was so short to begin with that it did not bother me much.
This week I painted with my teacher and the small group of us that go to her house and study. I finally-FINALLY- started the people. Trying to finish them before Friday…hmmm…not likely. The photos are really hard to see what is happening it was a dark rainy day…I will try for better pictures on Wednesday when the weather and light will be better.
Until next week- Peace Out- Bec
