About 30-40 minutes. That seemed slow to me. Jonathan has been encouraging me to work from life by sitting still whenever I ask. I am so thankful for that. Hiring models is quite expensive. Hopefully I can get the kids to sit for me too soon.
Recently I have been doing some graphic/illustration work for a software company in Chicago. The first iPhone/iTouch app we made is now in the store. It is a fun timer for kids, babysitters and parents. It is called TimeZup! Check it out here. We have been using it with Miles who can watch the time go by as he sits in “time out”. It also helps kids prepare for a change in activities. There are 4 voices to choose from, and at certain intervals the character will say how much time is left. The pirate is the favorite so far.
It is only 99cents, so please check it out and tell your friends. I am planning on putting some coloring pages on the website for download also. If your kids color them, please let me know. I would love to see their beautiful artwork.
The winners of the ARC’s annual Salon were announced this week. This painting won 2nd in the figurative category. I am amazed by this piece titled, The Crisis.
Here is an Orthodox Christian belief that I have been meditating on lately: “You are not your thoughts.”
When I get upset about things going awry, it amazes me how damning my thoughts are to whoever I think is the culprit, then about an hour later I find I am neutral on the same issue. How am I swayed so much in such a short time?
I recently read To the Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf. The characters in her book do the same thing. Woolf shows the reader how quickly people go from love to hate to indifference in a matter of moments. It is so amazing to me.
Are we always dreaming? How do we manage our own thoughts? Can one have integrity without being able to find his way through his own thoughts?
