I have several paintings half finished or a third finished. I want to finish them by tomorrow night. Of course I probably won’t have a car till Saturday so really I should finish by Friday night I guess. My husband’s car had to be towed to a work friend who fixes cars. So we are a one-car family which is fine usually except for when I actually need to go somewhere. This morning I decided you know going without coffee isn’t a good idea. I could have walked with two kids to get some but part of it would have been a retreat FROM them. My Mom was busy and I didn’t want to bug the neighbors who were home so we did other things. Oh and I had two of the iced coffees from the little packages. These don’t count as coffee though so I am ready for tomorrow morning to use the car!
Anyways I tried to get a newsletter out about the event I am at this weekend and after three hours managed to finally send it. In between that I watched Melody and two of the neighbors kids squirt each other with water, we put up Christmas lights in the garage and then talked about how my art is good according to my 5-year-old neighbor. My daughter, also 5, says she needs to teach me because nothing I make looks real. I am looking forward to the art lessons, thank you. I haven’t taken an art class but I mostly do abstract so how it’s supposed to look real I don’t know.
Willow went upstairs and showed me my deodorant from the loft asking me pretty much what it is. She disappeared again and came downstairs. I then noticed that she had some markings on her but the pens are downstairs and washable. Instead she used my brown waterproof eyeliner for body painting/tagging on the tummy.
My Cernnunos painting is coming along but not done. I should time how long it really takes to finish something without interruptions but that doesn’t happen. 🙂 Idea, paint background, 5 minutes, sketch subject on, 10 minutes, paint in subject layer 1 5 minutes.
And the computer is a huge time suck here of course. I also play Frontierville on facebook in the evenings. I have to make it to the next level or make a cradle so I can have a virtual child. The virtual husband stands behind the barn or hides in the trees and I can never find him to make him do something on the homestead. Very real life. 🙂
