Open books & you open doors, it's that simple. I'm grateful for the library, getting out to visit it, the beautiful drive noticing leaves changing while waving 'hello' to a new neighbour as I go! Weeee! Grateful to God for the view - reminding all us "painters" to pay attention as fall arrives.... get a lesson like no other direct from the creator.
I asked Norm to take down the weather vane so I could paint it - of course, since I was a kid I've alwasy wanted a weather vane! It amuses me so much now that we have one - I smile every time I look up at it. I use to draw them on every house (not just the haunted houses) so, to have my own - a Canadian GOOSE - is the cherry on this cake. I lay there and watch it spin and could not take it any longer - it screamed & squeeked 'paint me'... Norm has to put it back up this weekend (add a bit of WD40) - he also took down the base with the N,S,E,W for a new coat of weather protecting paint. I am in a painting mode- today was a pair of: "Happy Fall Y'all " jeans - lol they are my painting jeans which started to look a little ruff so I 'falled' them up with leaves - organized painting. I can't wait to wear them.. .
my kinda camoflauge.
A new canvas has been started and it's goig to take a while.. a serious peice of work, just getting photos has been a 3 day adventure, then I stared at the canvas for about 16 hours - vefore finally a bit of pencil was added, trying to anticipate where I want the viewwer to look & what to see. Som ehave NO idea how lng paintings take, I lay and just think about the direction of the light, what I want in the image around the main subject.. color I will be using.. - Norm says 'I'm napping.' when he sees me do this. No.
Next step PAINT. Beyond enthusiastic to start creating this painting.
Until we meet again - EAT pie - homemade.
