|Mixed-Media "Byward Market Melt" (on Canson 124 lb/ 265 g Montval Aquarelle watercolor paper)|
I realized this blogging-lapse when I was applying for a one week residency in Quebec with the Pontiac Artists' Association and they asked for my art website URL.
My thoughts were: "Wow! I haven't posted on my art blog since November 21, 2016. Why not?"
I opened my sketchbooks and I have been making art every day (almost). I have been posting some of it to social media (my twitter https://twitter.com/cindiforeman and instagram) but I haven't been writing any blog posts.
I reviewed my blog and noted that:
- in 2014, I wrote 55 blog posts;
- in 2016, I wrote 113 blog posts
- in 2015 I wrote 43 (nearly one blog post per week)

This early March weather is still cold, icy, and generally unpleasant. My recent self-portrait sketch below was created to express my gratitude for my warm green coat, but seriously, the truth is that I can't wait for the warm weather to arrive!
