Minor tragedy struck today. When I got to church and went to pull out my nearly-full Moleskine (and all of it's drawing accompaniments - pencils, pens, erasers, sharpener, tiny tin of colored pencils - all perfectly placed in a small 4x6 velcroed, cloth 'envelope'), alas! It was *not* in my purse. Dang. I've been carrying that envelope of drawing supplies around for over 5 years, and this mostly-Sunday Moleskine for nearly a year. Feeling kindof naked and bereft without it. Have looked all over in the car and at home, but it is nowhere to be seen.I had to use my not-nearly-as-sensuously-surfaced Strathmore mini-sketchbook that was in my other bag. And scrounged a scratchy ball-point from the depths of my purse.... I don't draw in pen that often, so eased myself in by drawing drapery (baby blankets and leather jackets...)
By the time we hit Primary, I decided to attempt some pen faces (which I suck at. I am very eraser dependant apparently). Actually this is a very good exercise and I'm sure will help me be more precise in my initial laying-down-of-lines.
I just would really like my good, purse-drawing-kit pen.... :-(
(My Moleskine does have my name and phone number in it. Maybe it will still return home).
