Still here!

I just realized it’s been over a week since I posted here. I’m in the middle of some DIY projects for the house. Most of the painting I’ve been doing has been painting shelves, frames, ect. and not paintings but I have done a bit of that, too. This is Patty. She isn’t new but I haven’t shown her here before and frankly, I’ve got to get that ugly cow below to scroll down so I don’t have to keep looking at it, LOL. Patty is much prettier, I think.

I did work a little bit on my oil painting. Here’s a tiny snippet of that to the right, just to show I have made some progress. The frog has put in his appearance. It’s wet so there is a glare. Hopefully, the whole thing will be ready to photograph by Friday for this week’s PPF.

    And so is Patty watercolor? It’s very lovely.

    And those DIY home projects are great … in the spring (at least for me). Isn’t it too hot down there right now?

      Yes, she is watercolor. And yes it is too hot down here for DIY right now! You have to use spray paint at under 90 degrees and low humidity (we don’t EVER have low humidity!) which means I can only paint between 7-9 am. After that is too hot and before that is too damp. So it is taking me forever to finish! Same thing for the latex paint that is too stinky to use indoors. I just bought some no voc paint for the next project so at least I can do that in the air conditioned house. I probably should have waited for fall but I got a bee in my bonnet and needed to start, LOL.

        Well, I certainly hear you on the bonnet and bee! However, they usually don’t buzz for me in hot, humid weather. Of course, we in the Pacific Northwest don’t get that kind of weather, so … 🙂

    Hi Melisa!
    Pati is wonderful! You captured so well a very sweet expression.
    You asked me a question, and I couldn’t find your email, so I’ll answer here. You asked if I painted over the faces because I wasn’t happy with them or changed my mind. Actually – I knew what I was going to do. I didn’t know the direction that paintings are going to take, but I knew that I am going to paint three paintings one over other, without stopping. That was my way to relax and lift my spirits… It’s always more relaxing if I’m not attached to what I’m painting. Unlike know, when I have a half-finished painting on my easel and I’m afraid to make big changes and not happy with how it looks at this moment…
    That was an interesting question!
    Thanks,
    Zorana

      Interesting! I’m not sure if that would relax me, though. I’ll have to try sometime and see. I get that same fear, especially if I like certain parts then I am afraid to make big changes even if I don’t like other parts. BTW, there is a contact link at the top right of my blog but nobody ever sees it, LOL. I guess I need to see about adding one somewhere else.
