Getting to Know You, March 2020 presented by MvM

Recommended Posts

Welcome to Getting to Know You, March 2020 Edition.

 

The rules as they currently stand (we all know most of you rebellious lot will ignore most of it, but one can try)

 

1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.

1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, and random forum members are all chomping at the bit to step in and post one... 

2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
2.5. Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.
3. Questions will usually be posted between 8:00 hours and 12:00 hours EST. (Eastern Standard Time)
4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me... 
5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question... or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why can be fun...unless TMI).
7. Weekend questions may take the form of two or three day quests, starting on Friday or Saturday.

 

The inquisition shall begin after the required waiting window to avoid the merging of posts.

Question for March 1st:

In America (and possibly elsewhere around the world?) we have the saying "March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb." Do you plan to approach your painting/hobbying this month like the lion (aggressively), or the lamb (mildly)?

 

(The saying is a weather-related thing, Google it if interested, but it's not needed for this question.)

First time hearing that saying, but it's definitely an interesting one. 

 

I'll answer with "neither", because I'm more for sly and crafty foxes! ::P:  I approach my painting in a haphazard, almost chaotic kind of way, that seems to almost defy reason, especially when I'm trying to figure out colours and half the time I'll just wing it one bottle at a time...

This year, March means getting the new house ready to move in.

So I will be painting like a Lion, but it will not be miniatures, it will be walls and such.

Painting may be lamb-like as I expect to be busy with other things.

 

I hope that my hobbying will be a bit more lion-like. Having retired I have decided to join a new local gaming group. I feel unaccountably nervous about meeting new opponents.

Plan?

There is no plan.  There is only blunder or blunder not....

Probably mildly, I'm on a bit of a hobby break at the moment.

I need it to be like the lion...I am signed up to do a couple of French Revolution games at Huzzah in mid-May, and a lot of figures should be painted for that.  I really need to clear my desk and dig in seriously. :huh:

It will start like a lamb as I will be away from home the first 5 days, after that, all bets are off.

As my hobby area is about to get demolished and remodeled, I will be doing much like Glitterwolf, painting walls and such.

 

It's also garden season, one of my other hobbies and it starts with weeding out aggressive invaders like honeysuckle and wintercreeper that took hold during our mild winter.  Both need to be pulled out by hand, preferably after a good rain when the ground is nice and soft. 

 

But it won't be a completely miniature-less month, as a local hobby shop is putting on Paint-a-Palooza next weekend.  It sounds suspiciously like something I've been to before.  Lots of tables for people to sit and paint, painting classes, paint contests, other events, food, swag....

Lamb like. Too busy to give it the focus I'd really like.

Based on personal circumstances, which have nothing specifically to do with hobbying, I am hoping to to the reverse. Come in like a comatose lamb, but go out like a lion. (The first part is achieved  )

Lamb.  I haven't even set my goals yet.  

Last month I started with a Landscape on Canvas, and then did nothing else for about a week .

It will pick up though.  gotta lotta bones to finish. 

 

I set ambitious goals. - likely starting Monday.  with another burst when my Cats Kickstarter arrives.

I have never encountered this saying but it will have to be like a lion.

 

I have a couple commissions lined up and I need to do them in a timely manner. I also have some personal projects that I'd like to and some that need to be done very soon.
