Winter is not a season
it's an occupation
- Sinclair Lewis
it's a snow storm!
So refreshing at this time of year...
(yes, i'm being sarcastic)
Schools are closed,
buses not running,
mall is closed...
(you know it's serious when the mall closes)
i may paint later on, but for now
i'll post what i painted last night.you know you're at the bottom of the barrel
when you start painting money.
Our new Canadian bills...
super thin, plastic-like, & see thru.
Kinda like Hollywood's rich & famous.
not a masterpiece, but hey...
i guess it was not my night...
started to paint this little bottle,
and then had the bright idea to use marker
for the shadow...
it actually bled through the thick paper
so i tried to fix it with white acrylic paint
a thin coating...
then added colour over the white...
still not good.
it looked pretty bad
so i thought i'd try to fix it again
this time with using a dark colour for the shadow
and applying it with a sponge (instead of a brush)
when i accidentally dirtied the paper
(that vertical line just below the bottle)
Again - not good
Tried fixing it again,
by covering it with yellow & white paint,
dabbing with a bristle brush...
(if you can't erase it, cover it up!) ;-)
concluded it was just an "off" night for me.
We all get them, right?
So i saw this sign yesterday at a church on my way home from work
and it made me smile...
WHOEVER IS PRAYING FOR SNOW
Please stop indeed.
I've been pressed for time lately,
so blogging less than i want to.
My contract ends in early May,
so i am currently counting days. :-)
Hoping you're all doing well
and finding inspiration somewhere in your day.
Keep your chin up.
