My son, whose birthday it was today, asked if anything exciting had been happening. Apart from climbing on the roof I couldn’t think of anything in particular.
All my exciting things are so little that they wouldn’t really qualify.
For instance today my lovely coffee pot produced 2 cups of coffee. (And leaked a bit) However that was a nice exciting way to start getting day.
I realised that being ” hot and bothered” was a physical thing. I always assumed it was just a feeling. Then I wrote about it.
After that I made a still life set up including my lovely coffee pot. And I used the app on my phone to let me see some different versions . It’s too cold to paint through in my work room so I’ll work from a photo.
That was fun. I might paint it at the weekend.
Next I put the latest commission in the frame. It fitted perfectly. That is very impressive as my measuring skills are not very good. And I didn’t break the glass while fitting it in.
I was putting off turning on the stove. So moving about was good.
I quickly finished painting the sides of the latest small painting and then added it to the collection on the gallery wall.
After lunch I had a good book on my Kindle to read for an hour.
And I turned the stove on. Hurray!
Now my next local scene is drawn and ready to paint tomorrow.
I enjoyed the second half of the Hamish Macbeth audiobook while I drew.
And that was it for today.
Now it’s wine time at the end of a satisfactory day.
