Unfortunately, I don't have an update on the spring landscape I'm working on yet. The week-end was very busy, and I didn't get a chance to get into the studio. I'm hoping by Wednesday to have something new to show you in the way of progress on that piece.
Thanks for your patience! Sometimes the muse needs to get in line behind the taskmasters of daily life. But I am seriously looking forward to getting back in the studio, the day never feels complete if I don't paint.
FOR TODAY Monday February, 23, 2009...
Outside my window...it is sunny and cold, the suns rays are growing stronger and the light is brighter yellow, not so thin and pale anymore. The oak tree is casting big branchy shadows, like great twisted arms on the window.
I am thinking...about how fast time goes by and the seasons change.
I am thankful for...the antibiotics that have finally made me feel better.
From the kitchen...trying to think of something to do with the leftover roast chicken other than soup.
I am wearing...My LL Bean red flannel nightgown, red polartec vest and wooly socks LOL not a fashion statement but all the colors coordinate!
I am creating...a new spring landscape painting, working on it slowly to build up an interesting surface texture and sophisticated color.
I am going...to teach my two private students today and hopefully have lunch with a friend.
I am reading...Praying to Our Lord Jesus Christ: Prayers and Meditations through the Centuries
I am hoping...to sell a painting or two at the Junior Womens Club charity art show in April.
I am hearing...the wind chimes on the deck, love them!
Around the house...there is a laundry monster to be slayed.
One of my favorite things...is Irish Soda bread, have it every year starting now, 'till St. Patricks Day.
A few plans for the rest of the week: Serious catch up on all modes of cleaning and organizing after being sick for 3 weeks.
Here is picture thought I am sharing...Kolorful kittys on my daughters Laurel Burch handbag.
