And then you think...hang on, maybe those are not tulips but birds and the frogman sort of drew himself and quite by accident I lifted the colour out of him and he pasted himself three times. Once you start drawing these folk it's difficult to stop.
Now I see there is a snow and torrential rain alert on the Yahoo front page. There's a whole page of instructions on how to escape from floods, seawaves, avalanches. What do they know that I don't? Should I take off my clogs and put on boots?
Just doing this drawing this morning and now I see it here I realise I have to put a negative tulip on the surface...which will make it sort of white. Well, I guess that's the whole point of playing in Photoshop...to get ideas for the final thing.
There's a locksmith putting a new lock on the front door right now. It fell off a few days ago, just sort of collapsed in a pile of screws and cylinders. He's German so I'm not sure what he's on about but there's a lot of drilling going on and I have Paco de Lucia on at full blast in here.
According to the Chinese calender this is a great year for snakes so I'll be looking forward to that then.

The doorbell rang...I put my guitar on top of the table...today I realise why the smell of burning is still around. I just found a deep burn the size of a milk bottle top in the back of the guitar which I've had for 27 years. How could I have done that? I am desolated.

Put your headphones on for this one............
Twenty minutes later.....I was listening to Maria Linneman on the headphones when all of a sudden smoke starts drifting across the screen...which would have been normal nearly two years ago when I smoked like a chimney
. Heck, the laptop is burning...pull out the wall plug, the wacom tablet, run out the house with the laptop, come back to check wall plugs...smoke is worse!!!! Burning worse...where's it coming from? An orange- scented nightlight candle, madeinspain, the candlecontainer melts after the candle burns for more than ten minutes. I am a royal twit.
