The joy of being a Sunday painter!
Ah, so Sunday afternoon comes along and I have some choices. My husband is watching both football and Booker, so I am free! Do I run errands, take a nap, work, or play? Well, I did a bit of it all today! I went to the grocery store and the library, took a short nap, and then spent a short time painting this tiny warm-up painting. It's just 5x5". It was so much fun (in spite of all the green, which I am not fond of mixing) that I think it qualifies as 'play' and not work! But I also did some touch-up finishing work on another painting, so there was a bit of work involved, too.
This evening, I'm going back into the studio until football is over, then I'll settle down with some knitting in front of Masterpiece Theater's new version of "Emma." Overall, a pretty nice day!
I am listening to Dan Brown's new book, The Lost Symbol as I work. It is so intense, I sometimes have to back up to hear what I missed while I was lost in my right brain.
I also just finished reading La's Orchestra Saves the World by Alexander McCall Smith. I love his books (especially the #1 Ladies' Detective Agency series) and highly recommend this one, too.
ps. Going to call the little painting "Watching Ewe."
