A lovely rainy weekend!
Those of you who don't live in the desert may not understand this post. It's been cool (60's) and rainy here all weekend, and I am loving it! Sitting on the porch was almost too chilly! The photo (above) was taken with my husband's iPhone. It has some really fun photo apps.... tempting, really.
A rainy day that is too cool for porch sitting just begs for a nap. Booker agreed. He sleeps on the floor until he's sure you are groggy enough to not notice, then he eases his way onto the bed. I think I was grateful for his warmth, so he got to stay. Besides, he really is so stealthy about it that I don't think I knew he was there until I woke up. My husband took the photo.
This is the latest after-weaving tiny painting. It is 5x7" on a gessoed masonite panel. I really do like it at the small scale, but when I took the photo of it and viewed it on a larger scale, it looks like there is not enough detail. In other words, don't look too closely - this is a small painting! This was from The Chicago Art Institute. I was struck by this girl in front of the Gauguin. The two females in the painting have long dark hair, like hers is. Gauguin would have loved her!
