Weekly Win - 37
Happy Sunday! It’s been a busy week as we all get settled back into our usual routines. Here are a few wins for us this week.
With all the rain we've had over the last couple of weeks, our house has been overrun with massive spiders trying to escape the weather. I’m sure they have had an easy time finding places to hide as we are long overdue for a full house clean out. I tackled the living room this week, with the vacuum close at hand in case I came across any creepy crawlers. It felt good to take a load of donations to the Salvation Army and liberate some space in the living room. Thankfully I didn’t come across any stow-aways.
I've been working on an online art course through the week, and I've discovered an unusual calmness while getting lost in a piece I'm working on. It's a slow learning process to go from only being able to draw stickmen to being able to illustrate what I see, as opposed to what I think the object should look like. Shadows are a crucial piece I need to continue to work on. Without proper shadowing, objects continue to appear flat. I am enjoying the learning process though and have set a challenge to draw daily. Perhaps I’ll even start posting some pictures on the website.
We attended ‘Burgers and Boulders' at Climb Base 5 – North Vancouver on the weekend, formerly known as The Edge Climbing. This is the climbing gym that Alana first started climbing at over nine years ago and where she has been working as an instructor for the last year. The gym was purchased by Climb Base 5 - Coquitlam (where Alana currently trains) and today was the first big community event since the gym ownership changed hands. It was interesting to see the recent changes to the gym, and we look forward to seeing what Daniel has in store for the future.
