Its a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood
I'm trying to be more optimistic and positive... but I just went grocery shopping. Oh. My. Gawd. Milk is 30 cents more a gallon from the last time I bought any. Fallout from the gas hikes. But gee whiz isn't it grand that I now have a gallon of milk sitting in my frig. (I thought about freezing the milk and holding a raffle next month for it.)
I've got a good sketch down for a portrait using a photo but I keep putting off applying watercolor to it. See, thats the critical part. You know, applying the paint. I'm the same way with oils or acrylics.... putting down the underpainting is easy and I often think this is turning out well and it was fun!! Its the next steps that make or break a painting.
I want to rearrange my bedroom by putting the length of the bed up against the wall. That will leave more floor space to set up my easel. Its going to waste right now.
Well, I've still got groceries to put away. And blogs to read. I haven't done that yet today.
