WOWzers this month is flying by. Two days finishing the challenge. Four working on the group Pinterest board. Five days of cleaning my digital files. Three days on a deep “Spring” studio cleaning. Hmm. Still a few days I can’t account for. I must have spent them working on the files. And I probably have another five days of work there. Still, they were not as disheveled as I imagined.

Meanwhile. I want to paint! So I reached for my scrap stack and my watercolors. I used the last of the colors on my palette. It’s not much. A little 4 x 4. Calling it play. It served the purpose. Relaxation. Meditation. Fun.

When I saw the scan, I decided it needed some warmth. I found an old painting, digitally cropped a flower and pasted it onto this. I added some color to the center, it was white before.

I am working on a larger piece. The rooster I didn’t get to last month. Or the month before that. Yeah, yeah. Big time procrastination. I have never painted a rooster. Don’t know how. But thanks to Youtube, I am learning.

Wishing you good health, peace, and JOY!

Painted seven tonight. Three are OK. Two are hideous. (Not shown here) I am cringing just thinking about clicking the post button. But the work is done. Hours put in towards my 10,000. I did have fun. I am really enjoying my new palette! YAY!

Part of the “getting things on the walls” project was this huge canvas. It has had a few lives. The last was partly covered up with ugly, muddy, leftover colors. Finally, I covered the yuck. Didn’t think I had enough Naples yellow so I added some white.

I still don’t know what I want to do with this canvas. And I have been thinking on it for three years, at least. A floral? A Mingus? An abstract landscape? Have to say, I really like it this way. Ha!

Family from out-of-town this weekend. Might not post again until next week. Have fun!
