Only little bits, it’s true, but today someone else I know has heard that they will be getting the vaccine. HURRAY!
I still read news on twitter and can’t believe that it is possible to get away with so much lying etc , but even there the Good Law Project is fighting back.
But maybe it’s just that the days are getting longer , the sun is shining and I can sit outside again , however briefly, and soon I can meet friends out there for coffee.
It feels a little like waking up after hibernating.
Today after reading about the importance of fresh air I climbed up on the table and took out the ” winter nails” which were keeping the window above my door shut. I have just looked up and noticed that it is still open.
I didn’t have the stove on until about 5pm. Though that was because I mostly did moving about jobs today and wore a big heavy checked shirt over my clothes. It would fit a giant! Goodness knows what the postman thinks when I answer the door with furry hat as well.
Starting the day with a digital painting is good. This morning I took my coffee outside along with my tablet. I’ve no desire to do detailed digital paintings but I love the way quick sketches turn out.
My stretcher which I made yesterday was ready to put canvas on ,but I thought that I should sandpaper the corners so went out and bought some. Today’s bit of exercise sorted.
The canvas I use is quite thick and not stretchy. I pull it as tight as possible , but sometimes there are some looser bits so I fixed them with boiling water and a hairdryer. ( saw how to do it on youtube.)
I’ve now completed one commission and have 4 more started. It’s nice to be busy.
Wine time again…..🍷🍷
