Lately, I haven’t been slowing down enough to idle. I’ve been busy painting murals at the preschool, and also remodeling my kitchen walls. (removed the wallpaper, trowled on plaster for a stucco-like texture, primed, painted 2 coats, and finally did a faux finish on top. WHEW!) It’s been a very busy month! I’ve been wanting to get back to IF though, so when I was taking a break the other day, I sat down and sketched a couple of things that remind me of the word idle. There I am relaxing and watching TV, and then there is the Tin Man when he rusted out in the rain. He was definitely in idle mode there. I doubt I’ll even get a chance to finish these off in color before Friday, but soon. Taking a moment out to idle sounds awfully nice right now!
