Knee Socks

Doesn’t it look like I’m about to play baseball or something? I think the ensemble reminds me of A League of Their Own, where the baseball-playing gals wear a pink dress uniform with knee-high socks.

BUT JUST KIDDING. One thing you will never see me do is play a sport of any kind (I did shoot guns in Naval ROTC, though!!! My best memory is shooting an M1 Garand and getting a big fat bruise on my shoulder. I still don’t know how the men in WWII managed to haul them around in battle).

Sports, like math, is definitely put under the section of My Weaknesses. I tried a musical route by playing handbells in high school and I was literally the ONE person in the class who played off key (I still don’t understand how to successfully play a handbell??????), and the teacher gave me the evil eye until I decided to just drop the class. Muahaha…

I mainly liked the class because we got to wear white gloves…

“Away in the Clouds”

Ah, but then I met ART. Art was the one place where I felt everything I did was right. The beauty of art is that it’s subjective. A flaw perceived by one person is perfection to another.

There’s no wrong or right way to do art. It simply is. In a fast-paced world that demands perfection, art is paradise.

I had a most excellent three day weekend (I took Monday off to enjoy the nice day and work on a new illustration, featured above). The idea I had behind it is, ultimately, being a wallflower with her head in the clouds.

Because you know what? There’s no shame in being a wallflower with her head in the clouds! 💜

Apart from creating new art, sipping coffee at a coffee shop and going to Barnes and Noble, I also watched a movie Sunday night that I hadn’t seen in a looooooong time…

Jackass the Movie, 2002

This is really random trivia about me, but I’m a huge Jackass fan. I know it can be really gross, but oh my gosh is it also hilarious!!! I remember seeing Jackass 3 in 3D years back in the theater…oh my, LOL.

It’s one of those movies you’re unable to take your eyes off the screen. Is he really going to ride his bicycle into a pile of cacti? Is he really going to jump off a trampoline and into a ceiling fan, that’s on? Oh wow…he just did…

Sometimes all a gal needs is to create some art and watch Jackass to fully recharge herself. 😉

See ya again soon!!

  1. I love this post! Probably because I too hate sports and math. And what you say about art is spot on: “There’s no wrong or right way to do art. It simply is. In a fast-paced world that demands perfection, art is paradise.” Yessss!!! Speaking of which, “Away in the Clouds” is so beautiful. The subject kind of reminds me of Sleeping Beauty, but with a deeper backstory. She also looks like you, but blonde. Believe it or not, I’ve never seen “Jackass.” But I love a good comedy, so I’ll check it out if I get the chance. Glad you got to enjoy an old favorite. 🙂

    1. Glad you loved the post, and the quote!! Thanks for the kind words about my new illustration, and now that I really look at it, it does have Sleeping Beauty vibes! Jackass is gross but also very funny, haha!
