Day 8 of Summer Olympics in Rio

Saturday, August 13, 2016

I woke up with a bad headache, which felt like a hangover. After eating breakfast, feeding Gumby, and watching the Olympics, I turned on my computer to browse around on different sites. I think my headache is from staying up too late watching the Olympics and see who won what. So, I decided not to go to the local mall to draw a little before the art gallery reception. I will just go to the art gallery around 4pm.

At this afternoon’s art reception, I decided to do three videos, one video of the artworks on display, one video of the art reception party, and one video of the Live Art interaction activity at the event. Since the weather was nice, I walked outside and noticed some scenes I wanted to draw. So, I need to return tomorrow to get some drawing done.
