Not that this post is about lentils. But after writing a list of possible subjects yesterday it appealed to me to see if I could actually write something about possibly the most ridiculous subject on the list.
I am trying to teach myself to lie. Or rather to exaggerate. To take some truth and make it into a better story. I’m not finding it very easy so far. But interesting…..
At least getting up early and writing something feels like a plan. And it makes me feel good. Maybe like having gone out for a run before breakfast. Not that I have ever gone out for a run before breakfast or ever actually.
After sharing breakfast with Brutto I went off to buy more wine. I get ridiculously nervous about going into a new shop . So much so that I decided I’d better buy some spicy sausage so it didn’t look as If I had just come in to buy wine. ( It was a butchers shop) So much for cheap wine . The sausage was nearly as expensive as the wine. Don’t think I have bought anything from a butcher for about 10 years.
I then spent most of the rest of the day bullying myself into watching art videos and then trying to paint something.
Eventually when I gave up on the bullying I felt much more like painting and did another practice one which I like.
Am not sure if I have learned very much as I felt that I would have painted this in this way before I began all the practice.
I really wanted to paint these clouds.
But I decided it was probably better as a photo . Impressive clouds.
It’s now thundering outside and there has been heavy rain.
Am glad it’s Friday. Maybe at the weekend I can make a design for my rag rug. It’s all ready to start.
Now for wine. Cheers 🍷🍷
