For two weeks I’ve been flat-out on my bum.
Week one: Flu. Soar throat, runny nose, muscle aches, joint pain and lethargy. Week two: In all of my weakness I threw out my lower back. Now I can barely put my socks on!
I’m pretty sure that’s called a one-two punch.
I’m feeling it.
So anyways, that’s what I’ve been up to… and you?
I scraped myself up, dusted myself off and started painting again yesterday. I had been working in gouache the past month and decided it was time to switch over to acrylic. I forget how forgiving acrylic is. You can add layer upon layer whereas gouache is like watercolors, it’s more of a one-shot deal.
Here’s yesterdays progression:
I started by painting the entire canvas an orange-red.
Then I moved into the sea and sky…
I left off with the underlying landscape. Next I will add some foreground interest and a beautiful home by the sea. Stay tuned…
I’ve also been busy at the pottery studio. There is a local craft fair in early December and I’ve decided to sell my tea mugs. They are my favorite creation thus far. I enjoy my mugs every morning and thought others might enjoy them too.
Here’s their progression:
I’ve also designed over 75 jewelry pendants to sell at the craft show. I forgot to take photos though. I’ll try to remember next week.
Well I’m off to a VERY gentle yoga class to see if I can try to stand up straight.
I hope you all are in better shape than me!
Enjoy the rest of your week.
