Like every other Ms. Claus, I have been doing holiday stuff: shopping, making, and performing holiday songs for various audiences. Busy, in other words.
And a bit grumpy, I guess, too.
But one of the things that has kept me sane (or as sane as I get at this time of year) has been to sit down almost every evening for 20-30 minutes to do a little sketch in my sketchbook. They are not complex. They are not great ART. But they are pretty fun, and the practice helps dump my brain-busy-ness.
I have been sketching photos I get from the Sktchy app. People upload their photos there for artists to use. It has also become a lovely supportive community of artists who encourage each other.
The sketches I've been doing the past week or so have mostly been holiday related.
Fun. I hope you have a practice that keeps you sane and enjoying the holidays, as well.
Ho, ho, ho.
