Storm's Coming - Homage to Rain
I thought today, day 3 of rain, seemed quite fitting for the painting (plus it's taken 3 times to try to get it to this stage! LOL)
Thank you all for your comments, encouragement and suggestons yesterday. Please know how grateful I am for your taking the time to write and for your kindest of words. Words, like painting, mean the world to me, and so YOUR comments are very much taken to heart. I won't give up on plein air -- I am determined if nothing else! LOL What I hope to give up is my own perfectionism and ridiculous expectations -- doing that should help a lot too! LOL
We had a grand time last night with Nick and Emily. It's been a while since we all had enough time to sit and play for several hours. And though Emily didn't get a chance to brighten my eyes with shadow, or pink my lips with glaze or paint my nails pink and purple, we had an entertaining time racing cars, making crabycakes and spaghetti with PlayDoh, splashing a lot in the tub, and snacking on PawPaw's special cookies and berries. It's amazing to me how grown up they are becoming -- and how tall! Emily clearly is passing my waist, and Nick is right behind her. Before long, we'll be sharing clothing! LOL
The poor kitties have confined themselves to the porch in all the rain -- and are startling us with their antics across the porch chairs as they chase one another and bang the chairs against the house. We have another one or two days of this .. I hope the furniture survives! LOL
Stay dry and warm today!
