Since being on the boat, I’ve had a lot of free time. When it was nice out, I spent that time jumping into the ocean, snorkeling with my sister and using our windsurfing board as a paddle board.
Since it was raining a lot for the first week and then we were stuck at a dock for almost two more weeks, I’ve had a lot more free time than I thought I would and I’ve found myself bored a lot. So, I have been working on my colored pencil portraits.
There’s this book I found and have been using to help me get better with my drawing called Colored Pencil Portraits STEP by STEP and it is helping me a lot with my drawing.
I also have this book called Creative Coloring for Grown-ups that’s kind of like a grown up coloring book and it’s really fun and can be really pretty.
I also enjoy drawing random things, like my mom’s unimpressed llama. We used to have it painted on the door in our house. I think my mom is going to paint it on the boat somewhere, too.
And, of course, I keep up with my flexibility training so that I’ll be ready to go when we finally get my silks hung up from the mast!
I also might spend a little bit of time cuddling the pets. Just a little. Tiberius sleeps in my cabin with me already, but sometimes he’s extra cuddly even during the day.
