FOUR HOURS!!!!

OMG!!!

I got

FOUR

WHOLE

HOURS

all to myself - alone - with NOTHING I had to do. (OK, I ignored a bunch of things I SHOULD have done, but that's just fine.)

I got out the brushes and paints and paper I haven't been able to get to since last JUNE. If that isn't pathetic enough for you.....

I sort of went nuts....

Look...


I've tossed a pencil in so you can get some perspective. This one is not quite done yet, though it is closing in on it, and I am pretty darned happy with it.


Again pretty happy with this...it may be finished in fact...the colours look all weird on the computer, and flat.


This looks totally odd on the computer, but I really like it, and I THINK it is finished...I may do a little more...


These are in process...


Meh, not so happy with how this turned out...more work here to come....


This looks absolutely hallucinatory on my computer, but in real life looks, IMHO really good...and it is done. Love it.


Totally not done, almost didn't post it, but what the heck....collaborative/ripped the central portrait, it is one that youngest did.


Again, an image by Youngest, that she rejected as terrible, that I am reworking...the modern thing...take something and remix it...



Not sure this one is done yet...I am liking it a lot, but I need to sit with it a bit and see.

I was a busy girl today...to boot, Chuck slipped his collar this morning and had a gleeful time running around town and eating cat food before tearing home....

After I emerged from my art induce haze...I realised that school, and work and things had to go on...it was a real shift of gears. I had managed to really put everything aside and get on with it.

Did it ever feel good.

Hope your day went reasonably well too.

Really good to see what you're into, Canadian nature trails, anyone?
My life at the moment - read the email I sent you! GM

YAY for you! I love it when I get four whole hours to myself. But I'm not nearly as productive or creative, I fear.

just wondering... where do you find the room to keep all your paintings?

How productive! That's quite a stash for four hours. Does working large help you to work faster? I find when I'm diddling over small detail I never seem to finish. I hope you don't put the painting materials away for too long.

GM, I'll do just that!

Jason, I am not usually so wildly creative with my time...it just sort of happened. Four hours is complete bliss though isn't it.

LP, I paint on paper for a reason...the paintings are stacked on top of the dog's box in the front hall. Some are on the walls. I don't even have a portfolio for the stuff.

Canvas is much harder to store and move.

Bodhi Chicklet! Thanks for stopping by! I love to work big, little tiny detail stuff makes me kind of nuts...it was a whole lot for four hours, and was just great.

I don't know when I will get to the paints again...time time time time time.....
