One of the joys of unschooling is that
there is always time to follow your passion.
We usually do a bit of reading. writing and math in the morning,
and some history and geography is bound to happen
somewhere in the day, along with whatever interests us.
We research what takes our fancy that day.
There's lots of play time, sometimes we cook together.
And there's drawing. Lots and lots of it.

Do you make New Year's resolutions?
I don't. I find it easier to try and be mindful
on a daily basis, regardless of the calendar.
Does that mean I live mindfully all the time?
Heck, no. Do I want to? Absolutely!
But for me, small steps work better than
big huge lists of stupendous (yup, stupendous)
intentions and resolutions.
And three is a good number to start with :)
What's on your plate this year?

The NanoBot LOVES animals,
as in breathes, dreams, lives animals,
so when a charity art exhibition opportunity came up
for helping the turtles at one of our
favorite local haunts, called Heartland Forest,
it was the perfect chance for her to
flex her mighty artistic muscles.
For a ballpen-only, speed-drawing, non-colorist
she has done some pretty impressive colored drawings.
Here's a sneak-peek!
Aren't they just adorable?
More about this soon!

Painting in Photoshop. You know why it's so cool?
In a few small clicks...
you have a new mood.
This was done pretty intuitively, and in one go.
I didn't draw it out, or plan it to go any which way.
The part I like best about painting
(either with 'real' paints, or digitally)
is that the work takes on its own life and direction.
After that, it's only a matter of facilitating it,
and letting it manifest itself.
I could have gone on painting it,
but I stopped, and just changed the backgrounds.
In the end, I don't have a favorite - do you?
