© Mr. C. Turtle Makes New Friends
By Patsy H. Parker
Several months ago I wrote a story called “Mr. C. Turtle Makes New Friends.” I haven’t put anything about it on my blog yet because I was still tweaking the story a bit. But this is how it starts. I decided to put the pictures of the paintings in my Word program and put in the dialogue to get a feel for how it could be. Hopefully, you may be able to “see” where this story might be going!! Anyway, I began doodling in my sketchbook what I want my characters to look like a couple of months ago. But I just got to trying to paint them last week. These are just quick sketches without backgrounds.
So there is a little fish who you’ll find out more about later. Then there is Mr. C. Turtle, the main character. He wears a top hat and a monocle. Eventually you will see what kind of personality he has if you haven’t figured it out already. I have a lot of paintings to do to get this really going. It will be one of my many summer projects I am going to be working on.
Yesterday, I also spent a few hours continuing to paint my pictures for my picture book “Larry, the Lonely Leatherback.” One of the drawbacks of A.D.D. is I get bored with things quickly, so I have to have several different things to be working on at the same time. I guess you don’t really have to have A.D.D. to work that way, though. I have read that a lot of artists and writers are working on several projects at a time. Now all I have to do is make myself a schedule for the rest of the summer! Wish me luck!
By the way, I am also re-organizing my blog and learning to use tags correctly which I have learned that I think I majorly messed up! Sorry if you’ve had trouble finding anything here. It is always a work-in-progress…just like I am.
Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug! 🙂
