I signed up for yet another challenge, Thing-a-day.  The concept is that for the entire month of February, I am challenged to create something every day.  I’m already sketching and writing every night here.  Now I’ll try some other things on top of this.  Is it cheating if I’m already brainstorming ideas?  I know that I want to create a field watercolor sketch kit like Russ Stutler’s.  I have a couple of pieces of patio furiture that I have been wanting to build forever.  I have a very large chess set that I have been imagining for years.  The challenge tonight was to draw a view from a window.  This is really more of a view *OF* a window instead of *FROM*.  It’s dark outside so I can’t really see anything outside.  It’s cold outside, so I’m not going out there to draw the view from the other side.  So I drew what I could see from my kitchen to my back porch.  My first thought was that eyes are the windows of the soul and  I seriously considered trying to draw my reflection in my wife’s eye.  I may follow up on that during the next few weeks.  Maybe I’m just using art and creativity as a way get a hot chick to sit with me for a while.
