Pink Saddle

Today I painted Matilda’s saddle. Is it too pink? I can’t tell yet. My top collector and I also decided that while other carousel horses wear all kinds of complicated harnesses and other accessories, Matilda should be naked except for her saddle.

Other than that, I made some progress in terms of book promotion, and the new novel I’m writing keeps growing. I’m so grateful to have inspiration at a time like this. If we’re still stuck inside for a few weeks, I’d rather be writing.

Also, my friend dropped off a sourdough starter at my door. The list of beings I need to keep alive keeps growing. There’s me, the dog, the orchid, the lemon tree, the jade plants, one tiny bamboo, and now the starter. Or perhaps I should count the starter as several creatures, because it is?
