Painting, laundry, vacuuming....


Another cold day, although it's warmed up to 24 degrees. I guess that's more of a heat wave. We had a bit of snow last night and are forecast for more tonight.

Still, it's better than upstate NY!
Can you say, "Spring!"?

This past Sunday, Jeff and I went to Chicago to see my youngest daughter. I ordered a MacBook Pro laptop from Apple and she picked it up for me. I've never had a Mac before. This little puppy is beautiful, but not much is on it yet.


Last Thursday, I left my digital camera at my friend's house and it's still there. So the picture of the painting above is from the camera built into the laptop.
Today I worked on the figurative study again. Decided to go with acrylics this time. I use fluid acrylics. They just seem to work better when doing larger areas quickly. The painting is actually further along than showing because I worked for another hour or so. It shouldn't take me more than another day at the easel, unless I get distracted. That happens a lot.

In fact, I just cleaned up, put in a load of laundry, vacuumed the place, and planned tonight's dinner....anything but paint. Why I feel guilty spending the whole day painting is beyond me. But if Jayne doesn't make a plan (especially about food)...then nobody eats. And I tell ya, right now my dog is looking appetizing!!
