The other day I was resizing an image digitally and was zoomed right in. I love the look of gouache on paper up close and personal. Flaws, bumps, dirt, bits of pencil peeking through, and brush strokes I could do better next time. I haven't painted in an embarrassingly long time. I need to remedy that soon. All my 'free' time has been taken up with freelance graphic/book design work. I'm revising my goals each day, taking a breath, and knowing this busy time won't last forever.
