I’m relatively happy with being busy while procrastinating……..I know what I should be doing this week and it’s Wednesday already, but I’m not wasting my time .
I was supposed to be making another picture book.
However I cooked enough rice to mix with scrambled egg to last for 12 days. There are now 11 small bags of cooked rice in the freezer.
Then I went shopping. I had to buy more little bags.
I took some photos of doors on the way and I found the name of the street I ended up calling ” via non lo so.” ( via I don’t know. )
I suppose that is a tiny step in the right” book” direction even if it was accidental. I spoke to a very nice lady who had seen the painting I did . That was a good feeling.
Then it was time to fix the frames I painted yesterday. I repainted the blue one, then sanded them all so they look a little aged. I’m very pleased with the result.
After lunch I took an old self portrait out of a frame and adjusted it. It looks better more square shaped . I changed some of the colours and fiddled about with it. It’s better now, though it’s not much of a likeness and my shoes aren’t very well done.
Then I made oatcakes.
Finally I decided to make a new canvas to fit the frame which was empty after removing the self portrait.
I have a plan to incorporate the frame in a painting.
A good day’s work I think.
