It's been a handful of weeks since I was laid off, and I'm slowly beginning to figure out what I want to do next. This has been slightly hindered by the fact that I'm having to confront my own biases and bluffs. Perspective is amazing in both drawing and life. You can feel one way about a situation and feel confident that you would react a certain way and then when confronted by that situation have to accept you'd rather be drinking margaritas in the sun.
So, as I work through and untangle honestly my desires for Plan B from my need to impress or to achieve a goal, whose posts I'll continue to move, here are some tortured attempts at perspective.
While in San Antonio, I stayed at this cute B&B that had a fabulous balcony, which was inconveniently only accessible via a very large window. Not a door. A window. But contorting myself to fit through the window was worth it. We overlooked gorgeous Live Oaks bending and twisting into living canopies, and enjoyed the lights that had been woven into every branch, frond or green living thing in the garden behind.
Here are a couple of sketches. One of our neighbor's balcony; the other is of a Live Oak stretching and curling into various shapes.
