Portrait of a monkey
For some reason, my body saves up illnesses for when I don't have to work. Today was a holiday for me and sure enough I woke up feeling blah - sore throat, temperature, aches and pains - a cold. My first all winter.
Its probably a combination of being tired and travelling through busy places with lots of people that did it and hopefully it will be shortlived.
I've been searching for inspiration all week without much luck and looking forward to this long weekend to get some drawing and painting done. I fully intended looking around my property to see what I could work with, but weather and how I felt stopped that. Instead I wandered through some images online and this little face appealed to me - a portrait by Samantha.
Humans always seem to find primates fascinating, perhaps because they so closely mimic looks and expressions of humans that we see some of ourselves in them.
