pretend this is a valentine from me to you. except it isn’t. but pretend it is.
it’s a glorious morn. filled with sunshine, open windows, purring cats, and barking squirrels.
there’s a brand new boxcar sitting in my driveway. old car died and 24 hours later i was driving trixie home. yep, my new car came with a name. not kidding.
it’s the first new car of my entire life and boy is it exciting! once i settled on a make/model i texted the dealership back and forth to get all the price haggling out of the way. the edmunds app was great, the test drive was fab, and leo gak the internet sales fellow was wonderful. an overall positive experience.
so now i’m home digging into my midori to continue my chipmunk & squirrel drawing adventure.
yesterday was periscope no. 3 chipmunkery!
it is a unique experience to draw/paint live in a broadcast that’s going straight out into the world. wow. i accidently dislocated chipmunk #004’s finger and gave double06 some pursed lips.
it’s still viewable in the periscope app for a few more hours. i’ll do another one next saturday.
i saw a fantastic periscope from amsterdam the other day @happylittlethings. she walked around amsterdam and showed us shop windows, the canals, streets, etc., so so lovely! i can’t wait to do the same thing next time i travel overseas. which will be in july with my sister.
off for a ride in trixie the boxcar. see you soon!
