I’m so glad I decided to keep a little black book or today I’d be thinking that I had sat about eating chocolate, speaking on the phone, making peanut butter and watching a video demo on how acrylic paint compares to oils.
But thanks to having a blank page to fill……
I begun today with deciding to wrap my latest portrait in clear plastic. Only I did it on my work bench which un noticed by me was rather sawdusty.
It wouldn’t brush off, which was when I noticed that there was a pencil line showing through the background on the painting so I had to take it all off again.
( am going to buy a large clear bag at the Meetmarket tomorrow. )
I was staying home today as after ignoring an email about a delivery I was expecting I then found I had to book a time for it to be delivered. I booked it for this afternoon so it arrived about 10.30am .
Then I was contacted by someone about picking up the portrait I had been fiddling about with yesterday. I was convinced they wouldn’t like it. I was wrong and might have another 2 commissions soon.
After that I set to work on doing a sketch of a tree which is for my next mural. As it only took about half an hour I wondered what I could have done wrong. I haven’t emailed it yet. Will do it in the morning when I’m feeling more optimistic.
The washing went well today. It was windy and I had it all back inside by lunch time. Very satisfying.
Then I thought I’d devote an hour to my book project. I pottered about just trying things. Then pressed the ” do it for you” button and in a few seconds I had a plan for a 69 page picture book. After that I discovered that there were some photo doubles and a few that had too few pixels. So I deleted them , but was left with empty pages. Not knowing how to delete pages I spent the next half hour on my phone looking for other paintings to use. Finally I found 5. Then I found the button to delete the pages. Doh!!!
Here are the five paintings I could have used to fill the empty pages.
Now it’s 5pm and time for wine. I have some of the home made stuff left. Good.
