Saturday, Zeus and I leave for New Mexico. It's been two years since we were there last. I'm very excited. What I did see, from the last trip, was wonderful. We'll be gone a week but I'll be taking the laptop so I'll be keeping you posted on what's happening.
It's dreary, damp and cool here today. The rain can't seem to decide if it's all done or not. Zeus had his tennis rained out last night so missed meeting up with his peeps for his birthday beer.
They think they are going to be able to reschedule for tonight. I'm not holding my breath.
I'm headed out to the studio. I'm working on some backgrounds. I used to use glazing liquid mixed with my heavy acrylics, all the time, in a painting. I loved the transparent look it gave.
Now, I'm working on using it more for blending my colors. I now love this new look, too.
Tomorrow my Mixed Media & Fiber Arts friends meet here, at the studio. We have so much fun.
I am so thankful to have a place like the studio for them to come and play. If we have a mild winter I might even suggest that we meet twice a month at the studio. Since this is the year of La Nina, we just might, have a mild winter. Some of the ladies have to drive quite a distance and a chance of a snowstorm keeps them at home.
I'm painting my front porch wooden bench, bright yellow. I want something bright and colorful out there when I look out at the snow.
I've decided to leave the plums on the tree this year. I watched the mama deer and her two babies eating the fallen plums on the ground. I can share. I still have a shelf full of Plum Chutney from last year. No problem, it's ok, they can have them, THIS year.
:)Bea Off to the studio to paint. Are you off anywhere to create?
