Crotchety Mrs. Stroud fixed her beady eyes on me as we walked by. I didnae have to look up to know she was glaring at me; I could feel it, burning through my skull. I knew better now than to match her glare. I kept my head down, watching my feet and mum’s skirts swish ahead of me, her freshly polished boots glinting whenever they peeked beneath the lace hem. I let her lead the way through toun.
We stopped at various shops, me holding the basket, and mum would drop in various parcels and guids. Mum would speak with the owners, coostomers, and other gossipers as we went through toun. I spoke very little and only when needed, with all the politeness I could muster. I kept my voice soft. A lady like mum would want. I donnae bother to remember anyone’s name. Some I knew through childhood, others I didnae care to learn. Connexions were mum’s concern. I knew she made most of them to help me appear better in standings—so the rumors would go away—but I cannae find

Mahalo
Graphite, pencil. This took a few hours, and I loved drawing it.

I am putting this in scraps simply so I don't lose it on accident. ❤️

I know I have commented on this before but I tend to do very poorly in keeping up a journal. It has been a long time since my last update. As far as updates go, I have a few exciting points. I have been hired on as an English teacher at my dream school, we are finally moving out of our apartment into a townhome, and I have started leading educational tours around the world. Next year we will be visiting Europe, and the year after will be Japan! These are all very excited and some long awaited updates for me. 

As far as my art goes, I am still drawing and painting. I simply don't have much uploaded as of late. This is something I need to work on. I have also been working on more of my writing. Not so much short stories, but actual books. I may post a few spoiler pages for fun the closer I get to publishing. 

Otherwise, I hope you all have a wonderful week! That's all for now on my end.

I love the use of colors in this piece! The water is stunning, and the little details of the flowers in the window boxes are just like what I have seen in Venice. Personally, because I enjoy the style and the brush strokes, I feel the background fades a little too quickly, but this is because I want to see more of those charming details you have added. Then again, I enjoy how the pastel sky fades into the scenery in the background. The flow of focal point and colors in the piece works well. I feel like I have seen similar techniques, but I enjoy how you used your own style with the technique and chose to use your own colors. Sometimes I have seen where other artists will do a painting similar to this and try to add in only blocks of color so that the subject is lost. here, you have a good balance of vibrant colors and have integrated the warm and cool colors well. Overall, this is absolutely lovely! P.s. I love that you took the time to add people on the bridge in the distance. Little nuances like that really get me in artwork!
