I had heard the noise of little bells when I was stroking Fluffy and then putting her outside.
I thought someone must be having a children’s party or something.
Then there was a lot of knocking and laughing at my door and voices calling , “Anna”.
It was the “Befane” calling with a small gift for me.
I’m still smiling . It feels good to belong.
Today I mostly drew a scale version of a plan for the mural. ( scale being hopefully relatively accurate )
It took me about 4 hours as I want to use it to draw from. I resisted going over it in ink ,as if I need to change anything I can rub out the pencil drawing. I think it looks great….because I like chocolatey box scenes. I’ve even made a little walk up some steps and through some arches just for fun. I think I would like it on my wall.
I posted the 8th painting on facebook.
I think it’s been a nice day outside, but I was busy inside.
Now it’s the weekend and I have a little bag of sweets from the Befane to eat.
And wine to drink.
