Today has been quiet. I took a nice walk this morning on a new route. This one keeps me mostly out of the traffic and is along a nice quiet road. There is a large section of land that is like a rolling field. I wish I could go out there and just lie in that field and watch the clouds roll by. If I knew who owned it I might would ask permission to do just that. Oh well...
I spent the rest of the day, bouncing between painting and knitting. I took that canvas from earlier in the month and changed it up with new color. As I added it, an image came to me and I knew what I wanted to paint. It's not done, as I've run into a bit of a problem.
The previous colors of the canvas (the orangey) is bleeding through turning the white to a very light peach-ish color. I put about four coats of gesso on the canvas before I started adding the blue. There is at least three layers of blue and then I started the actual image. I'm not sure how to fix it so may have to start this on a clean canvas and then do something different with this one. :-/
Scoreboard is coming along. I'm a week behind, but this is our bye week, so I'll catch up before the next game on the 29th.
I'm starting to think about Thanksgiving plans. I'm hosting again this year. I've planned the meal and ordered the turkey, now I need to figure out the schedule for prep. I can't believe that it is only a week away. Time is just streaming by, isn't it?
What have you been up to today?
thanks for stopping by!
love & blessings
