Twenty Minute Hibiscus
Our soap crafting workshop was a blast -- but I'm paying for it today -- so very tired. After a 16 hour day and a few hours sleep to begin it all again, the coffee in my cup JUST isn't strong enough! LOL I managed to sketch a bit during lunch yesterday -- but absolutely no time to apply paint.
This hibiscus was painted during a similiar busy time a few weeks ago when I had barely 30 minutes to paint. I didn't have time for a sketch so I went in directly with the paint (couldn't do that yesterday). I see things I'd definitely change if I repainted the flower -- but I post this today to remind myself that even in 20-30 minutes, the brush can be kept wet and moving -- and sometimes that's what's more important than the outcome.
We've Plant a Row for the Hungry volunteers this morning and a few more beds to install. Folks are returning for their now-hardened soap so it'll be a busy morning. We've all got our fingers crossed for rain, though ...we need it badly.
Hope you have a great day -- I"m keeping the coffee nearby! LOL
