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.
Hey Mary, Date and location of the craft fair please! They are my favorite part of Christmas. Thanks.
Hi Clare, I don’t know that this one is worth the drive…it’s sort of a local-yocal affair… here’s the info: http://pd.skschools.net/PTO/PTOHolidayFair
Hope you’re feeling better soon. Wonderful work as always.
Thank you! Gentle yoga…gentle yoga….I better get my back in gear, there’s plenty of leaves that need raking!
