I would like to paint the way a bird sings.”― Claude Monet
I’m back after taking an unexpected and unplanned week off from blogging last week. It was simply one of those weeks where so much was going on I didn’t know if I was coming or going. I even forgot I had to go to work until half an hour after my start time and I can tell you that just isn’t normal for me. So I knew I needed to take a step back from focusing on too much and just try again this week. And here I am.
Even though I didn’t blog last week, I was still working on art. As I’ve previously mentioned, I’m getting ready to be a part of a group exhibition in a few weeks time with my work crew. I’m very excited and super nervous.
To lower my stress levels some what I’ve decided to exhibit a few older pieces of work. So that meant I’ve needed to varnish an older oil painting (which has been stored away) and have it framed. I also wanted to add some more depth to a previous piece I posted about in week two. So I used a pouring medium to give a glass like finish. I’m yet to add the additional dimension using gold leaf.
Unfortunately I had trouble photographing them for my post but I hope you get the idea.
I also wanted to share that Baby C has finally taken her first walking steps on her own. She is so proud of herself and of course so are we.
Baby C has also taken to ‘drawing’ as she calls it on a regular basis. We keep her sketch book and crayons in a cupboard, so she points at the cupboard and says ‘drawing’ whenever she wants to do it. I think it may be time we bought her a little easel though as she has also taken to drawing on the floor. Even more fun times ahead.
Until next week… happy painting!
