πŸ”™Back from a short break πŸ’€

Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better – Albert EinsteinOne of my all time favorite quotes! 

Sometimes I just need to take a break from things to quiet the mind and focus πŸ”¬on other stuff. So every so often I take a short break (at times it extends into longer than expected) – a break from social media πŸ“΅. Turn off all external noise and focus on all things not social media! This frees up quite a bit of time⏱. (Ever wonder how much ⏳ we spend on social media 😜!

During these times I “do more things that make me forget to check my πŸ“žπŸ“²βŒšοΈ”

I take that extra time to read πŸ‘“(read stuff not on social media) πŸ“š, or spend time looking, πŸ‘€really lookingπŸ”Ž, and sketching 🎨in nature πŸŒΏπŸŒ»πŸ€πŸ„πŸžπŸπŸ¦‹πŸ , or take time to converse with family and friendsπŸ—£πŸ‘₯(not just txt) πŸ™‡πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

Over the last four days I did just that. I finished two good books πŸ“š πŸ‘. I did lots of sketches πŸ–πŸ–and studies en plein air πŸ•β›°and quite a bit of gardening πŸƒπŸŽ‹πŸŒΎ- in the coolerπŸ†’ hoursβŒ›οΈ of the day of course ! 

I sketch and paint everyday regardless of whether I post or not. A lot of these sketches never see the light of day πŸŒ• beyond my easel or sketch book. No matter, coz it’s the discipline that counts, right! 

If you haven’t guessed it already today is #WorldEmojiDay. I rarely use emojis! So it’s quite a comeback from a break on social media, wouldn’t you say!

Happy World Emoji Day or πŸ˜ŠπŸŒŽπŸŒπŸŒ•πŸ“† 

Here’s my favorite brushstroke done @hirshhorn of Roy Lichtenstein’s brushstroke!

Tomorrow I’ll post the stuff I’ve been working on over my break! πŸš™ (interesting, that’s the emoji that came up for break- car brake! Hmmm)
