I'm thick in the middle (gawd, I hope I'm at least halfway done!) of the new Masks cover. I like it a lot better already. The tablet I got for cover-making is working very, very well. It makes the process tons easier. And, unlike what they say about old bitc-er, dogs, I am learning some new tricks.
As kewl as all this artmaking is, it's exhausting. Like writing, art is a serious strain on the ol' muscles, tendons, bones, ligaments, brain--everything. Unlike most other physically demanding thingies, though, the way to take a break is not to put your feet up and have a cookie. (Darnit, now I want a cookie!) The best thing is to go for a walk, or a jog, or hiking, or swimming, or really pretty much anything that involves the big muscle groups for a change.
So, after being bad some more and typing here, I'm going to practice what I preach and take a little walkie in my garden. Heck, I might even put on my good walking shoes and take the dogs for a walk.
Hmm. Three dogs, one person ....
Maybe I'll just take me for a walk.
Evening Update: I think I'm close to finishing the Masks cover. I could use about three more days off to finish all the covers I'm backlogged on, but then if I got them all in a row, my backside would be really, really flat. Even with frequent walkies.
