Art....poured and painted

I'm so thankful to have a laptop that I can cart around with me for moments like this. Moments where, at the end of the day you are so tired that your body says "rest" but your mind says "bkjkfjklkj!!" I got home thinking there would be no blog today, but as I settled into the warm tub after a short, brisk 9pm walk with the Gersh...I decided yes, there would indeed be a blog....so I put down "Love in the time of cholera" and got out of the tub.

So here I am in bed, with tea and my laptop. It has been a very long day...but not in a bad way. This is what I was working on this morning. And it's finished....yay!

KIDDING!

It still needs work and is a few hours from being done, but I'm really happy with it so far. I like doing portraits partially drawn and partially painted. It makes the approach more fun and I like the outcome. This little cutie has such a happy expression on her face. Bath time should always be such fun! I also started a painting of rubber boots and a blue fence. So far it too is an inked in outline with some lovely floral pattern bits of paper on it. I blame my friend and fellow artist Angella Powel for my new addiction to tiny pieces of lovely patterned Japanese paper. I was getting canvas at the art store yesterday and bought 3 more "emergency" packs! But they do inspire lovely ideas for pieces...so it's not all bad. The rubber boots are for the show in Lethbridge. (3 more paintings....just 3 more!)

Training at Transcends' new location is going well. I am getting close to mastering pouring rosettas...but my hearts are looking a wee bit phallic....and sometimes even turnip-like. I am bound and determined to get it mastered! But my brain is tired....and thinking of that right now kind of makes me want to cry.

That being said, I think it's time to get back to my book...
