Finitti! There are actual veins in this one! Hee.
Now, I got all into that concept of life blood veins in the middle of this piece about mid-afternoon, when I had to cover over all of my work, because I nearly destroyed the painting. Agh! So!
It is the old painting, plus life blood veins now. Yay! I was able to restore the painting and add the new concept after all.
And finish — woo!
The night before last I woke up at eleven pm and wasn’t able to get back to sleep until 3:30 am. EEp! I slept through the night last night but I am still very tired. We were going to see Life of Pi this afternoon, but I wanted to paint and rest instead.
Yesterday we sold the rest of my rare and sundry odd books at Second Story Books in Rockville and now have a spare bookcase to replace the shaky one in the studio. I mean shakeee. Next weekend I suppose we will get to that. Before and after pics included, hey!
Tomorrow is Inauguration and possible snow showers and I will be watching on TEEVEE. I am so excited. I need to rest up. Tomorrow I will also be starting the new Ready to Live painting, on pastel. Whee!
I am pooped now. Will be watching the ATL/SF game with pizze then rest — pshaw — you know it. Gah. Just pooped — and now my right knee is freaking. Oh, come on, body. Chill for me. Heh.
