Today was so crisp and clear, gave a great view of Granite Mountain. The wall is new. There will be houses just beyond, but they are supposed to be single story homes. Sure hope so, or we will lose this view.
Did some painting today. Not on canvas or paper. These cork trivets (Ikea) will be put to good use soon.
DIY studio decor.
Came across this painting from November. It needed to be fixed, and I finally got to it today. It had an unfortunate splotch. You can see the original here. I had to rework the sky area several times before I was happy with it. I added more ink, and the edges along the petals became “ruffled” in the process. I really like the effect.
Tomorrow I begin Leslie Saeta’s January 30 paintings in 30 days challenge.
Hope to see you there!
Wishing you Joy, Happiness and Health!
May the road rise to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face; The rain fall soft upon your fields. And until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of his hand. ― Famous Irish Blessing
This has been sitting on my desk for a week. I watched a Youtube demo, and that artist covered her tile with one solid color, and then painted flowers over that. I had that in my head when I started this, but clearly I was not thinking. I covered the paper in the sky blue. We all know what you get when you mix blue and yellow.
Started 4 x 4 inches. But the head was flat on one side, and the petals sort of flopped on that side as well. Digital crop to the rescue. Funny it took me that long for it to dawn on me to crop. But it did. Took a while for this to grow on me.
Site was down for three hours today. The internet to the server was out. The internet was out to all of Miles City (MT. Where the server is). Here’s hoping it stays up now.
