So I tentatively painted the outer edges of this piece yesterday evening, in pinks and mauves, then I found this brilliant Grumbacher blue, unknown blue, the deepest blue you see there, totally surprising, and the piece kind of took off, literally. It is now a waterbird. It happened before I knew it and I thought of painting over it, because my PLAN, don’t you know was a waterSCAPE. Harumph. But I took Jason’s advice and let it sit overnight and decided I have nine more sheets of paper in which to complete a waterscape, we HOPE, right? Heh. This one has a Native American feel to me, kind of Nez Perce, not totally, but somewhat. Cool. Will finalize later today or tomorrow.
Soon this morning I head to Alexandria to meet the women of Jason’s fambly for the last of the plays we signed up for, the Little Theater of Alexandria, Move Over Mrs. Markham. A great opportunity to dress up a bit, a rose jacquard pencil skirt, a white tee, three bracelets and a heart locket necklace, nude wedge sandals, red Chanel lipstick — whee! Fun — and it will be great to see everyone and laugh and catch up. Yay!
I’m looking forward to painting more hopefully today — I’ve got the bug already. Funny — it was gone for several days and now it’s back in the best sort of way — hurray!!
Jason has made us some fresh dill pickles in three Mason jars that smell delicious! He’s also making the neighbors — shh! it’s a surprise — yummy comforting banana walnut muffins — we’re also getting the antique armoire tonight hopefully — maybe while I’m gone, maybe when I get back tonight — fingers crossed.
