I made a thing.

Considering I have artist friends who fart out better art than I can even conceptualize, I harbor no delusions of this actually being decent.  The wobbly lines everywhere probably make most people ill.  But I'm really happy to have painted a thing that I can actually hang up in the apartment and say it's mine.  

Next time - bigger canvas and a much, much less fine and precise subject inspiration. (The card, btw, is the Major Arcana 21, The World, from a flower-based French tarot card set that K gave me <3 ) 

Acryllic painting was actually better than I expected - I didn't realize that the quick-drying nature of acryllics actually allow you to paint over mistakes.  Like, I fucked up the green lines a few times, but bam, could splat some white paint over it and try again.  

In other news, I've actually had a super-crazy social calendar recently.  Just this weekend I actually went to a party, volunteered at an Oktoberfest (pulling Sam Adams - my hands smelled noxious for a while afterwards), and a book club.  I have three board game group meetings this week, a Game of Thrones D&D session tomorrow*, plus planning for the company Halloween thing.  It's different because usually I have zero social calendar at all, but obviously I'm driving in the 'too much stuff' direction and will have to come back to center eventually.

A nice thing is that I've started going to the gym every morning for a 40 minute workout, and then going into work.  I've found that I have more energy at the workout and in work afterwards as opposed to the afternoon workouts.  This is in the hope I lose some weight so I might reasonably be able to hack together a Miraculous Ladybug cosplay next year (it is a full body-suit thing and I don't want to put other people through undue distress.)

*I've actually been wanting to do a D&D style campaign for a long time now, but had trouble finding a group I wanted to be with.  This GoT group is on the newb side, but since I'm a newb too, that's cool.  I'm playing a septon on a secret mission, played by Jeremy Irons and he will be so badass nobody can handle it.
