Yesterday I had another person buy my scribble dachshund drawing on Etsy!
My weiners, errrr, I mean dachshunds seem to be very popular!
Anyways, I just finished reading “Essential Blake” by Stanley Kunitz, a collection of William Blake’s most important poems, & have started reading “The Portrait of Dorian Gray” by Oscar Wilde.
I’ve also been listening to a lot of Irish folk songs lately since St. Paddy’s day is coming up. I’ve always enjoyed the lyrics of old European folk songs. If you haven’t heard much of them, you will probably be surprised on how cleverly filthy many of them are. ha
I know that it’s been a while since I’ve made a post on this blog – almost a month! I’ve just been so busy & haven’t had the motivation, but now that I’ve got things under control I can finally start ranting once again!
A few weeks ago I had another sale on Etsy of a dachshund drawing! 🙂
I’ve been having fun experimenting with watercolor & have made several pieces that I will upload eventually.
Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. Hopefully some of you out there have more to do on that day than me :p Here’s a corny joke about it:
Q. What is the difference between a calendar and you?
A. A calendar has a date on Valentine’s day.
It has taken me 8 days into 2017 to muster up enough gusto to type up a blog entry. All of the food and champagne I’ve been consuming has made me too sluggish to do much of anything, but here goes my attempt.
I had a nice surprise the day before New Year’s Eve. I got an email saying that I had sold one of my dachshund drawings on Etsy, making it the first artwork I’ve ever sold! Even though it’s just a digital download of my drawing, I’m still going to let it count 🙂
I spent New Year’s Eve watching lots of tv, eating pizza rolls, and drinking a bottle of champagne. I know what you’re thinking – what a party animal! I know, I’m just wild. Unfortunately, I missed the whole Mariah Carey incident. I was watching “That’s Entertainment!” on TCM instead. I’m not a fan of pop music, so watching Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin Eve just give me a headache. I also don’t understand the appeal of waiting outside for hours to see a ball drop :p
Anyways, I hope that everyone had a fun and happy holiday season!
