It’s been a pretty crazy week and just when I get time to stop home and get a few things done, I wake up once again to rain on the roof.
Hard to believe that yesterday was 29 deg C and sunny, but such is what Spring is like in this part of the world.
Finally seem to be over the sinus infection that was plaguing me and despite the usual dose of hay-fever, I am feeling good and more motivated than I think I have in a long time.
Motivated to the point of picking up a paintbrush before work a couple of times and starting a new puppy portrait.
This one is of a little fluff-ball called Trixie and so far we are still at “zombie point” as I am trying to do the “darks before the lights”.
At art class yesterday, I finished and signed the portrait of my friend that has been keeping me busy for a few weeks. Oils are so much less cooperative than acrylics, with their longer drying time and tendency to spread and blend, but I will persevere and eventually, hopefully master them.
In other news, not necessarily art related, my little red car is now happily parked in the drive way and I am in love with it.
The new domain name is in place and seems to be working fine but if you are still using lizardhappy.com, now would be a good time to bookmark “bootsnbrushes.com” before the other becomes inactive and you wont be able to find these posts.
I think this afternoon will be the perfect day to work on the long overdue photobook from last year’s trip. Yes, I am still plodding away on it, yes, I know it was almost a whole year ago…
And talking holidays, only two weeks until we head to the beach for a little down time.
Fingers crossed the weather will finally be sunny enough to get out on the water. (I have books and paints in case we get rain though)
Time to top up the coffee cup and try and work out how to get the washing dry.
Smiles and hugs
