I went and bought some painting supplies today. Heavy gel medium was part of it, it's for use with acrylics and can be used underneath the colour as a sort of sculpturing medium or mixed with colour as well.
The only thing is that heavy gel medium, if you ask for it here, is pronounced heavy h*ll medium. Summons a different imagine somehow.
Can I also say that I am delighted to report that I am again reading Murikami in Catalan - Kafka at the Beach - and I understand about 98% of the words. That is like a miracle and makes me SUPER happy. The only thing is that Murikami is much creepier when you understand (nearly) every word. OOooooooh, the books are kinda...alarmin'! It is also weird that the translator has sometimes put in Catalan food in place of Japonese food. Has the character eating croquetes for instance, a particularly loathsome Catalan food. Kind of like eating wallpaper paste, breaded and lightly deep fried. Can't imagine it going down well in Japan somehow.
Probably some of you remember trying to go to bed on Christmas Eve. For most of you that's a fun memory. For me, a big fat fun memory. My kids are trying to do just that. I remember lying there, grinning in the dark, dying to go to sleep as fast as I could, which of course slowed the whole thing down.
Ohhhh, I just adore Christmas.
My kids are lying there, stockings at their feet, right this second. Love em.
Do not love the odd smell there is up in my painting space though. Hmmm, smells like something's going off. I'll have to explore, when I'd rather paint.
