Not a title I ever thought to use, but today when out painting what is supposed to be the last bench a certain pigeon appeared to be determined to spray us busy painters.
On thinking back , it might have been the air-conditioning unit on a nearby house…….or it might well have been that pigeon.
I was supposed to be painting little white houses , but when we got talking to someone who lived nearby it was suggested that we paint that area’s Saint.
So while I worked on a saint standing on a serpent the rest of the team took it in turns to paint some little houses, flowers and a lot of grass. It was like a relay as one person took over from the next.
It has been a lovely , if rather uncomfortable experience, painting benches. I have enjoyed painting lots of things I’ve never painted before and I have loved being part of a team. Hopefully we will find another project to work on soon. It was a really good feeling today to change the plan to paint a Saint to please people living nearby. I think ” happy benches” is a good way to describe them. They have been making people happy judging by all the comments
My last 3 portraits went off today along with a view of a corner in Pisticci. That was 5 paintings in a week ,including 2 double portraits, 2 triple and a flower painting. Glad I could do it, but probably best not repeated.
Wonder what I’ll do at the weekend…….
In the meantime I’m going to drink wine and enjoy not having plans…..
