I've Missed My Charcoal

I haven't picked up my charcoal and pastels in a long time.  I did a study of a painting by Norman Rockwell.  Not too bad.

I've noticed I'm most comfortable with charcoal and pastels.  I don't think my skills with the pencil or paint compare.  I still like to use them, but I can tell I'm less afraid putting something on paper with my magical chalk.

I'm rusty, but hey, at least I'm drawing again.

A Mild PR

I did the River Run, yet again, and manage to get the ever elusive PR I've been trying to achieve since the 1st one I ran.  Yay.  I didn't beat it by much, but next year, I'll kick more butt.

Now I'm going to start up training for Tough Mudder in November.  My upper body strength stinks, so time for pushups!
