the constant struggle, athletics vs creativity
Well, I finally painted my first rock this evening which because of the rock’s shape i decided to do a great white shark. I traced the rock outline with a pencil and sketched out a design in pencil first which turned out great because I could have never came up with that on the rock first due to how difficult it is to paint on an uneven rock. I used metallic acrylic paint which turned out better than I expected.
However, as the 2nd photo indicates, my creative project came at the expense of my fitbit goal of 10,000 steps or roughly 5 miles. The neon circle should go all the way around but stops at just past the 3/4 mark. 😦 An unfortunate reminder of how difficult it is sometimes to juggle those little creative tasks with meeting daily exercise goals.
The 3rd photo bottom right is the shark rock before image. I was thinking of making the little white rock in the bottom middle a rattle snake head. The egg shaped rock I may make into a little dino egg with a t-rex head sticking out.
