I was seriously concerned I’d never be creative on paper again, but ah, it just happened automatically today. Drawing and painting are wonderful hobbies which I have forgotten. It was such a pleasure to sketch, outline and colour in (this is why I do not take myself seriously) a weird fantasy piece, and get myself back into the practice of concentration. :)

I also spent some time in the greenhouse…

1: Leto playing. <3
2: Tradescantia bloom. sarcastic excitement
3: Pachyphytum compactum f. cristata cuttings, one of which I need to pot up nicely as a leaving present before Thursday.
4: Opuntia phaecantha turning into Mickey Mouse.
5: Yay! Today I coloured in a mermaid! …however I found out more about the lionfish (Pterois antennata) in the process, as well as waking up to how fun my pens are. I must stop reductio ad absurdum-ing everything I do. ;)
