Last night I got my oil paints out of the freezer (yes-you can freeze your oil paints and it works out very nifty but not acrylics) and let them defrost. I forced myself to tackle the dreaded California poppies. Got my Ipod going so I had some great music and put paint brush to canvas. I thought you'd enjoy seeing what is happening with that.
I can only stand working on the poppies just so long. So I turned myself around to my other easel and worked on the hollyhock painting that has been sitting almost as long as the horse painting. It was so fun! I just have to get myself going and then I'm hooked. So, I got them out tonight and I'm going to get going again. I've told myself that I only have to work on the poppies for a short while. There's no hurry. I don't have to make it a torture painting.
Now I also want to do a china mosaic for above the kitchen sink but I've been stuck on getting the right color of orange for it. Just haven't found the right dish to smash (although I could use a good smashing right now to relieve some stress). I must get to the D. I. (Deseret Industries) and start searching through the stacks. At $1 a plate it's such a great deal.
