Today I painted a grackle, because I still strongly identify with these badass birds. Also, I came up with this idea for raising money for the Houston SPCA. It’s something I like to do every year, help raise some money for animals.
I worked some more on the Paris paintings, did a little bit of writing in the morning, talked to my editor about working on Glory Days in late August. This book is moving along so fast!
I sat outside for a while too, under the crepe myrtles in bloom, reading. I’m reading Quicksand and Passing, and I can’t believe what happened to Helga Crane in the end.
