January 27.

Since I can't sleep I decide to post a page from Alpha sketchbook by Stillman & Birn, I scribbled during the day, waiting in the car, writing memos for myself. I miss drawing dearly, it makes me physically sick, not being able to draw. This sketchbook is bigger than my usual size, it is 8 and a half by 11 inches.
We still have big machinery around and interruption in power supply.

It's a great painting, and I like the notes on the edges and how they add to the story. Your choices of color bring out the essence of the scene, too, with the bright red paint of the truck sitting in the construction area. I hope you get some sleep soon, and I hope you find plenty of drawing time!

I totally agree with Katherine's comment, Nikira. I always love your sketchbook pages and the way you write your thoughts on them.

Thank you very much, Katherine, for your kindness, hard to juggle so many things at once and feel responsible for everything. I miss my lonely hours with pen and ink, no time. :-)

Thank you very much, Looserart, I don't draw much now days and afraid will forget how to do it. :-)

Thank you very much, CrimsonLeaves, hope I'll finish my relocation soon and will have some time for myself to get back to my normal state. Even my visual thoughts are getting affected. This is why it is so wonderful to get support from artistic community, very thankful.
