I need an Excel table to keep tracks of all the planned pictures, small and big. I keep forgetting which ones I've traced already to the board for painting.
It's a book about a young and naive mouse girl which my sister wrote. The author said she is a lot like me - loves small precious things like stones,glass pieces, shells and pods, for example. So it's easy to draw:) - I ask myself - what I could wear in the situation or what things would be scattered around when I am ill - and voila! - they go to the paper.
I will try a conveyor method for painting - all the similar objects from different pictures at one time. Less fun but definitely time saving!

My scanner did it to the sketch of spoons. I don't know how! It would be interesting to repeat the effect, but I have no idea what to do. All the spoons are made seated so neatly as if on the stairs.
I need to experiment. I suspect that the paper should be moved during scanning.

We went to visit Eugene O'Neill's house ( it was my daughter's school assignment - and a good one, I must say), and while waiting for the shuttle I noticed these shy small roses on the sidewalk. I think this is how blush color look. Anyway, I had my new camera and took pictures of everything I saw. It wasn't very clever because batteries died in the middle of our visit when most interesting part began.
So I don't have pictures of O'Neill's incredibly tiny handwriting and of the holes with acorns that woodpeckers made in the old barn. Sigh.
But I have this:) Roses in January.
